It looks like they don't have a slim build.
It is not uncommon for the slim build to appear a few days after the normal installers.

I am not certain there is total understanding about the slim builds. They install the exact same version of CCleaner as the normal "Installer" and "Portable" versions. The only differences are the installer.

If you go for the full Installer version, you get the latest version of CCleaner sooner - I see that as a good thing. Piriform gives us the option to easily choose a "custom" install with the full Installer version. That allows us to easily opt out of any extras while letting us pick the install location (if we don't want the default). And, should the need arise, because it is then registered in the Windows Registry, you can easily uninstall CCleaner via the Control Panel or program uninstaller. Also good things.

Typically the size difference between the full installer version and the slim version of the download file is less than 3Mb with the portable somewhere in the middle. Except for a small (tiny!) flash drive, if consuming a few extra megabytes of disk space is a concern, there are bigger problems with this system to deal much more urgently.

I think the slim version is nice if you are someone who is not in the habit of always choosing the custom install options when installing any program.
And I think the portable version is nice if you do house-calls and like to carry the latest version on a flash drive used for troubleshooting purposes.

Beyond that, and because Piriform is a reputable company (even as an Avast subsidiary), there is no reason to worry about the full installer, or be concerned there is no slim version if you are installing on your own computer.

Never going to happen.  :)
