  1. Changes in v5.45 and your feedback

    Users of Windows Home editions don't have access to Group Policy Editor. Adding a firewall rule to block outgoing connections by CCleaner is much easier.
  2. Changes in v5.45 and your feedback

    I'm still using 5.45 (free) with an added firewall rule to block outgoing connections, and no issues with monitoring turning itself on, or additional processes running.
  3. Changes in v5.45 and your feedback

    I have to say the level of FUD in this thread is amazing. One way to find out what is being sent to Piriform (Avast) is to run a Wireshark trace and examine the packets. Most would rather just repeat the FUD rather than try to actually prove their claims. I personally have found no evidence of personal information being sent by CCleaner. If anyone has, I would be interested in seeing it. BTW, gathering metrics is not new. Lots of software these days gather metrics, including antivirus and anti-malware programs. If it bothers you, simply add a firewall rule to block CCleaner from making outgoing connections.
  4. "Skip UAC" for all user accounts

    I had a similar issue and this is how I fixed it... 1. Create a Restore point. 2. Uninstall CCleaner. 3. Download Registry Scanner from Nir Sofer and search for any leftover CCleaner registry keys. 4. Remove leftover keys (CAVEAT). I would leave the AppCompatCache keys and any REG_BINARY keys alone...they ofen contain entries for more than one application. 5. Reinstall with a fresh copy of CCleaner. SkipUAC then worked correctly for two separate accounts.
  5. User Account Control message

    Go to Options > Advanced and make sure "Skip User Account Control Warning" is checked...
