Be careful using the latest version. It is causing a lot of problems with network and wifi connections.

Maybe! As usual Piriform has made no comment, ( they never admit mistakes) Its the registry cleaner that had issues. I will no longer update beyond the last of the 4 series.

Either be careful to UNcheck any pre-checked offers for bundled programs/toolbars (unless you really want them)... or else, wait a few days until the SLIM build is released.

There were issues reported downloading Slim earlier but that seems to have been fixed.

Anyone having problems getting the portable version to download?
It sends me to 2 other pages and by the time I get to the 2nd page, I'm not sure if I will actually be getting the portable version.

Well, tonight it is working for me.
I have no idea what my problem was earlier.
I got sent here http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download/portable
and when nothing happened there, I got sent to another page.
It no longer sends me to the 2nd page. I will try and find that address and edit my post to show where it kept sending me. There was a checklist showing the three versions and when I moved my cursor over the free download link, the status line of my browser showed the word "standard".

Slim should be released any day. Generally it takes about 7 - 10 from the initial announcement.

Just for the record, I don't wait for the slim version to appear. When I upgrade something, I want the latest and I want it now. And I ALWAYS choose the custom install option so I can easily opt out of any extras any program wants to foist on my system. I also do this because I typically don't install programs in the default locations. For example, CCleaner is installed under C:\Utilities\CCleaner.

But to the point here, when I saw the email notification for this thread reporting the update, I fired up CCleaner and clicked the Check for updates link in the lower right and sure enough, it reported there was a new update. Following the links for the free version, I downloaded, saved then ran the installer.

As ALWAYS, I selected the custom install option. Note I was NOT even offered any toolbars or extras. CCleaner apparently already saw I had opted out of it before. And it properly identified the correct install location.

I sure am not suggesting anyone take the default install option, but I do believe this apparent strong belief the slim version is necessary to avoid any evil extras is a bit overstressed and being overly cautious. Piriform is not an evil developer. IMO, it is better to install the upgrade than go 7-10 days with an outdated program. If these updates only added features, that may be one thing. But many of these updates correct bugs and errors in the cleaning routines.

I feel it is better to spend an extra 5 seconds to ensure any extras are opted out of, rather than run an obsolete cleaning routine that may break one of my programs.

Me neither, I download the Portable zip and extract the new .exe over the installed one.

I don't even mess with the portable .zip version for my own systems. The regular installer is easier and faster. I do use the zip version on my flash drive I take on service calls. But that's it.

Easier and faster? Possibly, since you don't need to open the builds page, otherwise probably not.
