If all options here are selected, and then Advanced Cleaner scans and cleans everything, the next time I start my computer, Windows 10 doesn't boot properly, I don't remember if it actually boots to desktop or not, but after that Windows 10 becomes unusable and even Restart doesn't fix it. It has to be completely reinstalled.

I'm not sure if it just breaks the Modern parts like taskbar, start menu, notifications, volume control, etc. as they don't appear when you click them, but I also think it breaks Cortana, which is essential to the start menu's searching.

I haven't gone in detail to test out every single option and which one affects Windows 10 like this, because it would take me more than a whole day of breaking and reinstalling Windows 10 just to find out which is it.

I would like you to review this and fix it, because selecting all options can discover some extra 500 MB of files to delete, apparently not all of them are junk, since it breaks Windows 10.

Please find a way to fix this.

Hi LAMBDA471.
 
I'm sorry you've got that awful problem.
I suspect the culprit is the latest entry *.log?, because it finds many files in vital places.
The following list shows what it finds on my machine:
Spoiler
I honestly have unticked all items with LOG in them, and *.bak (because of emule part files), since many months/years.
I've also been very cautious with searching and deleting empty files (i.e., I did not delete them).
By the way, the advanced cleaner is named advanced because it should be used by advanced (and brave) users.
Someone of the staff (most likely WiseCleaner_Admin) will probably give you a better and more authoritative answer than mine, from Monday onwards.
 
Hope this helps.
