    question about ClearMyTracks

    I run W7 SP1 on my desktop. Recently I started noticing something on my computer when it grinds to a halt:
    If I look in Taskmanger, I will have 2 or 3 instances of something called inetcpl.cpl/ClearMyTracks; and they use up 100% of my cpu.

    Do others see that same kind of behavior on their machines?

    If not, how would I go about troubleshooting what's at the root of this "problem" of mine.

    Thanks, as always, for any help provided,
    Dick

    Those cache cleaners should finish and then quit running. Sometimes they hang. Here are a list of the valid cleaners and what they do, running the last one manually in a cmd prompt may solve your problem.


    rundll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 8 Internet temporary files
    rundll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 2 Cookies
    rundll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 1 History
    rundll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 16 Forms Data
    rundll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 32 Passwords
    rundll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 255 Delete everything

    I saw in another article that using the value 260 may do a better job than 255 but see how it goes.
