CCleaner v5.47.6716
General
- Fixed cleaning from the Recycle Bin context menu
- Fixed cleaning via commandline
Browser Cleaning
- Added a new Edge cleaning rule for cleaning Credit Card data

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, use the  SLIM  build (which is already available) .
