Thank you, folks,for taking the time to reply. @ curlin: I tried adding the Winapp files for ccleaner from the forum posts, but they didn't work for me. I clearly didn't do it correctly. I'll try again, until I get it right, when I can get time.
@SRWare: I would rather my internet use not be tracked & recorded, no matter where
the records are purported yo be stored. (On the Chrome forum I found a line that can be added to the "Properties" section of my desktop shortcut that prevents the suggestions from being shown, but it doesn't actually stop the tracking of people's internet use - it just stops the suggestions from showing.)
@ bulek: I will certainly start using "incognito mode" more often, but it isn't what I need all of the time.
