CCleaner Skips Microsoft Edge - Won't Clean Edge

CCleaner is a great clean-up tool which I've used successfully for many years, but it will not clean Microsoft Edge. The line simply says "Microsoft Edge skipped". I've uninstalled CCleaner & re-installed it, but same problem. Can anyone help

I thought the latest update cleaned edge as well.

Is Edge closed at the time of cleaning?

I don't use Edge, I don't like it, and I have it switched off under "Running in the Background" in my Privacy settings. In theory, there shouldn't be anything in the cache. The latest version of CCleaner is supposed to clean Edge, but I kept getting the "skipped" notification.

If Edge is switched off then surely it cannot or will not clean it. Why worry ?

Kill dllhost.exe process and keep the task manager open while you're running ccleaner to see if the process doesn't start up again, because this process has the habit of starting and stopping itself frequently.
