    Is it safe now to use ccleaner?

    I'm a bit concerned when a 'CEO' can't spell Security Breach properly. That just put me off CCleaner for life.

  3. Is it safe now to use ccleaner?

    I think it isn't safe yet because every freaking time I turn on my computer it asks for special permissions,
    also,

    on my chromebook, i had to delete it because if I closed it, it turned back on.
