I can't speak for CC cleaner, if that's what the box is, in your post. I can however tell you why you have to reset all the game settings, every time you log off, if you have Windows 10.
If you have windows 10, it cleans, the browsing history, cookies and saved website data, and cached data and files, every time you log off any site.
To stop it from doing this, you must left click on the 3 dots in the upper right side of your open window, of choice. Once you have clicked on the 3 dots a box opens. Scroll down to SETTINGS.
Left click SETTINGS. Another box opens. Look for CLEAR BROWSING DATA. under that it will say, CHOOSE WHAT TO CLEAR. Left click that.
The next box opens, on top it has 3 boxes most likely checked, and blue colored.
These are what is clearing all the normally saved data, that previous versions of windows did not do.
Uncheck those 3 boxes, and your browsing history, cookies and saved website data, and cached data and files, will now become receptive of the necessary junk, websites leave behind, to save your settings, and such.
I assume, that is what CC cleaner is cleaning when you folks use it. I don't use it, so I am not sure. I was having all the files cleared, and was frustrated, with resetting all the game settings, every time I logged back on, as you mentioned above.
So if you have Windows 10, this is what the conflict may be, with CC cleaner. 10, is already doing the cleaning.
Uncheck those boxes and remove CC cleaner to see if your meter returns to a playable state.
I suppose you can use CC cleaner after you uncheck the boxes if you wish, or go back to settings, and clear it all yourself in seconds. Just choose what to clear.
Hope this is understandable, and helpful
