CCleaner also anti-spyware/adware?

Recommended Posts

I assume CCleaner is NOT anti-virus? (like AVG, McAffee, NOrton, etc)

 

Can CCleaner be considered as anti-spyware/adware?

Other words, besides CCleaner, do I need other spyware/malware cleaner like Malwarebytes?

Ccleaner is a temp and junk file cleaner.

 

It is not a security tool in any shape or form.

 

It should just be considered as a part of your regular system maintenance.

 

You MUST use an anti-virus (Malwarebytes is not an anti-virus)

 

Using Malwarebytes alongside an anti-virus is a good idea.
