    CCleaner


    I have 2 accounts, Local User and Local Administrator. When I run CCleaner I perform the first run as local user, the second run as Administrator. It amazes me how much junk CCleaner finds in the Admin account which I only log IN occasionally for PC maintenance.
    The Admin junk files are mostly IE and Edge. How can this be if I never use either browser, or seldom log IN to my Admin account. *Rolleyes

    > Is it safe to install ccleaner on my pc?

    Depends...

    Piriform (the maker of CCleaner etc) was bought by Avast in July 2017 and there was this nasty incident...


    All CCleaner versions are bundling Avast AV and/or various Google products such as Google Chrome, a Google toolbar and possibly other products....

    Microsoft Community has seen quite a few of related threads.

    Recently more and more threads are popping up in the Piriform/CCleaner forum which hint at even more questionable methods...

    Here are a few recent example threads:




    IMO, CCleaner is not unproblematic and has to be treated carefully.

    I, personally, would not recommend CCleaner to inexperienced and/or not so tech-savvy persons...

    Suggestion to inform yourself before installing CCleaner (or any other product) and to always, always keep your eyes wide open during installation (watch out for any bundled softwares etc etc).

    WRT to CCleaner on Windows 10:

    According to
    this
    post Windows 10 blocks older versions: "CC v5.27 and older, (or somewhere around there) are no longer deemed safe by MS and automatically blocked when starting."

    HTH,
