  1. CCleaner Flagged By FIVE Antivirus Engines

    Interesting that the portable version of CCleaner is only flagged by one agent on Virustotal. I installed the portable version of ccleaner on a usb stick, it works fine. CCleaner was always my favorite cleaner so I am pleased that I have been able to get to a compromise and continue to use the programme. I also like Avast and AVG . AVG I think has less features than Avast but I am pleased to be able to use both these tools, on seperate machines of course.

  3. OK , I apologise you do not actually remove messages but to the best of my knowledge you do "lock" the subject if that is correct term to certain messages. It is only recently I have found out by chance that slimbuilds of ccleaner have been available in the past and there appears to be a current "portable" version that only gets flagged by one site on virustotal, which gives me some hope . ****How come you do not mention to people the slim or portable versions of ccleaner ? *** Or should we put 2 and 2 together ourselves ?
  4. CCleaner has gone from being one of the best tools to one with bloatware. I understand that Ccleaner was aquired by Avast which I happen to like and have it installed on my machine. Does anyone know where the latest slim,build of ccleaner is, which hopefully doesn't contain anything nasty ? If suggestions are not forthcoming I will go to my favorite download site and look for other cleaners. The arrogance of Avast/Piriform amazes me. If the moderators don't like negative feedback they remove peoples posts ! Not very democratic. Return Ccleaner back to its original CLEAN and trustworthy self !!! or I'm off.
  5. CCleaner Flagged By FIVE Antivirus Engines

    I tried the exe file today with Virus total and amongst other bad reports at least two of the antivirus engines are reporting it as a TROJAN . You must instal confidence in users by dealing with the companys that are flagging the program. All this seems to have occurred after you got taken over by another company or it could be just a coincidence. For me there is only so much checking I can do and will be looking for a new cleaner. Sad, but I am not going to risk anything even if other people are prepared to take the risk.
  6. With each new release of CCeaner free version I check Virustotal before I instal it. Recent versions of CCleaner have shown a gradual increase in the number of engines reporting ccleaner as dangerous or words to that effect. With the latest version five engines have detected ccleaner. I have emailed ccleaner suppoprt to change their installer or whatever and to contact the antivirus companys that are reporting problems. I cannot see ccleaner/piriform doing anything to correct the matter and based on its history whereby a version was proven not to be clean I do not like their arrogance. If you look at Virustotals website the number of their community members complaining about the product is nearly forty and rising. CCleaner is a good program and I will keep an old version of the program on my computers but their reluctance to address the current matter can only make users make their own assumptions about the company.
