Title: CCleaner Updates
Post by: winchester73 on August 07, 2014, 06:40:56 PM
CCleaner is a freeware system optimization and privacy tool that cleans temporary and unnecessary files that accumulate on your computer over time. It can remove cookies, temporary files, Internet web sites visited/history, browser cache, recently used files, and various other things that can clog up your operating system, allowing Windows to run faster and freeing up valuable hard disk space. You select the items that you want cleaned, and also specify the cookies that should not be deleted.

Product Information*: CCleaner (http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner)

FALSE ALARM

HTNovo has retracted the original report of a ban:

    CCleaner is not in any Microsoft Blacklist and there are no Blacklists regarding other domains in the official Microsoft forums

Either be careful to UNcheck any pre-checked offers for bundled programs/toolbars (unless you really want them)...
in particular, be very careful to look for pre-checked offers to install avast antivirus, CCleaner browser and/or Google Chrome browser ...
or else, use the  SLIM  build.
