  1. So strange, on virustotal Avira detect nothing. So any explanation from CCleaner?
  2. Use brain if possible, one unknown AV says Trojan, while other famous AVs detect nothing, that will be false positive for sure.
  3. Yes that is paradox. Program used from removing crap, is now crap by self. Adding new still runing process, previous version had Adware. Just like Avast which is Adware and Bloatware in one product.
  4. Is not bug at all, just Piriform need telemetry from everyone so is forced to enable it again if you disable it.
  5. I still dont understand why you block CCleaner in firewall. I want disable monitoring because is another still running process, which can cause longer system bootup etc. So if you let him already running, so there is no reason block it in firewall. It send useful data to Piriform which they can use for bug fixing. If you bloick it in firewall, your process run completely useless.
  6. Delete or disable is the same. But if you delete it, you cannot enable it again without reinstallation CCleaner.
  7. You probably not deleted CCleaner64.exe/Monitor, not disabled ccupdate task or you just forgot untick monitoring and tray icon in settings. Make sure you have also unchecked start CCleaner with PC startup. You can also rename CCupdate.exe to something else, but if you disable that task correctly, this is not needed. BTW this version is better for me, because now clean faster (No IE stuck anymore) and not caused any ESENT error yet, which was pretty common before this version.
  8. You probably doing something wrong. For me this working perfectly. The key of re-enabling is ccupdate task. So i if you disable it, it cannot enable monitoring again.
  9. Disable MONITOR on Windows Startup

    You have to open Windows (not CCleaner) Task Scheduler. This task is hidden but Task Scheduler shows hidden task by default.
  10. Disable MONITOR on Windows Startup

    Disable CCupdate task which causing re-enabling monitoring.
  11. (work around) Enable Active Monitoring

    Better solution:
  12. This executable can also change your CCleaner settings and add new entries to startup. Last version 5.45.6611 is famous for it. CCupdate.exe always add CCleaner64.exe/Monitor to Startup entries and change value in registry "Monitoring" from "0" to "1". That is completely wrong. This executable should only check for security updates, but it should not change anything in our PC's.
  13. 1.Disable Active monitoring, System monitoring in options. Also disable CCleaner tray icon. 2.Remove CCleaner64.exe/Monitor (or CCleaner.exe/Monitor) from startup entries. 3.Disable "CCleaner Update" task in Task Scheduler. 4.Restart PC Now is monitoring permanently disabled.
  14. CCleaner 5.45 riddled with bugs

    At least slow cleaning IE was fixed in this version.
  15. Last couple of versions CCleaner has too many issues and bugs. It should be good make beta version to find most bugs before final release.
