I am just saying opening a zip file then installing is not as easy or quick as simply running an installer. This is more so the case if you save your downloads before executing them (as I do because I don't like running directly installers from the Internet). I am NOT saying the zip file is hard, just not as easy.

It's a simple single file overwrite, no install or scanning for fine print/hidden check boxes. If you don't clean your zip history, it's easier for subsequent updates.

Yeah - all true. As I noted, working with zip files is not hard.

You must have installed it over the top of a previous version.  I think a clean install will show it in the CCleaner Startup view.

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

It looks like they don't have a slim build.

Go for the portable without the installer so Avast doesn't get installed

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.

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
