Trackers remain after cleaning#98

I’’ve run the latest CCleaner to delete the trackers and junk files. After cleaning I immediately repeated the cleaning and it first found 1 tracler and some junk then after running it a third time it found 2 trackers but no junk. So how can there be trackers if I’m not on Google or anything but CCleaner. Does CCleaner leave trackers.

CCleaner does not leave trackers, however, cookies and other types of internet history are stored in files, and some browsers and parts of Windows automatically regenerate these container files when they detect hey are missing.

We are looking into ways of making this clearer to our users.
