CCleaner Updates
« 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

Installer, Portable, Slim versions:  http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/builds

(Note:  Slim is released about a week after the other two)
____________

*Although still hosted at Piriform.com, Avast acquired Piriform in July, 2017.

There have been reports that Avast installation is preselected/checked at the bottom left of the installer splash screen.

Reminder/WARNING:

It is now confirmed that avast --- which owns CCleaner --- is automatically updating CCleaner ("in general", and in particular, anytime avast installs a newer version of itself).
https://www.dell.com/community/Virus-Spyware/CCleaner-updating-itself-for-some-people/m-p/6050920#M201190

There are also some (isolated?) reports that CCleaner is bundling/installing avast as part of CCleaner's installation.  https://www.dell.com/community/Virus-Spyware/Updates-4-23-18-CCleaner/m-p/6070419/highlight/true#M201231

CCleaner v5.45.6611 (24 Jul 2018)



https://www.ccleaner.com/ccleaner/builds
.
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 and/or Google Chrome browser...
or else, wait a few days until the SLIM build is released.

Quite an uproar about the changes made in 5.45.  Piriform's response:

Quote
Here's what we're doing:

    We will separate out Active Monitoring (junk cleaning alerts and browser cleaning alerts) and heartbeat (anonymous usage analytics) features in the UI and we will give you the ability to control these individually. You will have the options of enabling all, some or none of these functions, and this functionality will be uniquely controlled from the UI.
    We will take this opportunity to rename the Advanced Monitoring features in CCleaner to make their functions clearer.
    We will deliver these changes to the software in the coming weeks.
