Nope, Slim is Slim.  It is identical to the standard version but does not offer to install a toolbar. It is usually made available a week or so after the standard version is released.

For anyone else reading this, as an FYI ... the Portable version is a special edition that can be carried around on a removable drive. and run without leaving a footprint in the Windows registry.

There has been confirmations of Google Chrome within the installer in non slim versions - beware.

Yes, I noticed that Google Chrome has been offered of late instead of toolbars in CCleaner installer.

I like the idea of Slim without those items being pushed. Thanks for that info Winchester. Was not aware of Slim till this thread. Nice!  :mitch:

I download the Portable and extract the included .exe files to overwrite the installed version's files, saves waiting for the Slim build.

Slim may be the way to go but I sure would not wait a week for it to come. Frankly, I think Piriform's intent is good, but I don't think the results necessarily are. The reason I say that is because EVERYONE should ALWAYS choose the "Custom Install" option whenever installing ANY program, regardless its source. And I worry someone will become complacent with slim versions and assume they are getting a clean, fluff-free installation of ONLY the program you want. While I trust Piriform to not violate that "understanding", they can - if not intentionally, by accident. And certainly other companies may not be trustworthy at all.

So even if installing the Slim version, users still need to choose the Custom Install option. And since the Custom Install option on the full package allows you to opt-out of extras (not to mention, allows you to install CCleaner on the drive and under the folder of YOUR choice, not theirs), I say go for the full package to ensure you have the most recent version.

The only time I really recommend the slim version is for those running out of disk space and I don't generally do that because Windows Disk Cleanup is already installed - it does not really make sense to install yet another program that takes up space when disk space is already at a premium.

Slim build is seven to ten days from the bloated version - whichever comes first.
