Received this error message in BleachBit 1.10 Windows 7 Pro SP1 32bit. It is a persistent error because it's reoccurs after reboot.

LibreOffice to V5.0.1
Ghostscript for Cute PDF
Logitech mouse and keyboard software

If you uncheck everything except Google Chrome, does this happen?

This may be the same as bug #1545567

Unchecked everything except Chromium (not Chrome) and the error persisted.

Unchecked Chromium and checked everything else as I always do and the error disappeared.

The only other error is about the Avast lock file which I reported previously.

Error in execution of Command to delete C:\Windows\temp\_avast_\AvastLock.txt

I know what lock files are, and I am not concerned about it.

I found the source of the Chromium problem. It happens only when "vacuum" is selected. It is a reproducible error.

Would you mind trying a kind of hot-fix?

Here is the newest version of SQLite DLL, which BleachBit uses to vacuum Chromium. If you would please

1. Download
2. Unzip it
3. Copy the DLL
4. Replace the DLL that comes with BleachBit. Off the top of my head, I think it is in c:\program files (x86\BleachBit\ . Make sure there is an sqlite.dll in the directory to verify it is the right location.
5. Try vacuuming again
6. Let me know how it goes

Unfortunately it didn't solve the error. Without vacuum it still works fine. With vacuum tried it twice and got this identical 0x02BE82D8 error.

Error in execution of <bleachbit.Command.Function instance at 0x02BE82D8>

Just to be clear, FYI the old and new files are both named sqlite3.dll, but the old was about ~300kb, the new one is 805kb.

Reproducible on this system

Chromium 50.0.2660.0 (Developer Build) (32-bit)
Windows 8.1
BleachBit 1.10

The error is that Thumbnails is a folder instead of an SQLite file, so a recent update to Chromium changed the Thumbnails from a file to a folder.

The error is reproducible also on Linux (Ubuntu) with Chromium 48. It did not have a Thumbnails file or folder, so I made one and got this error:
