Doesn't work. Also CC will clean the recycle bin if I select run from the gUI but the right context menu won't clean it.
Do you mean the Right-click on Recycle Bin to "Run CCleaner" vs Open CCleaner?

Disable and re-enable that option in CCleaner.

Preferably as Admin and closing / re-opening the program.

Try Piriform forums.

Unless someone else still uses CCleaner.

Try checking System Section in CCleaner if recycle bin deletion is checked off or not?

It is owned by Avast, like that is not bad enough, considering all awesome features introduced lately. :censored:
Yup! I have dropped using CCleaner a while back myself.

I agree with @Vasudev ! Try checking that out and see if that helps. If not, @ticklemefeet have you tried uninstalling the software (I would use Revo Uninstaller free/paid) and downloading the latest stable release from the developer's website?

If you are going to use CCleaner I would only recommend using the portable version. Link: CCleaner - Portable

Let us know how things work out for you!

Sincerely,

Brian
