Goodbye CCleaner from a Pro user

Recommended Posts

The new version's active monitoring and the fact that control to turn it off deliberately does not work is completely unacceptable. I neither want nor need active monitoring so this is nothing but spyware.

Fwiw the devs have said they hear our pain and will release 'a fix' in a few weeks.

Too little too late. The trust factor is gone. Whomever (manager) agreed to implement such a feature should be fired.

I agree - plus the stupidity of not being able to close it from the system tray is weird.   I uninstalled it, went back a version and blocked it from calling home in Windows Firewall.

Why did you post this quoting my post?

I know how to block things in Windows Firewall - didn't I say - I have blocked it - not how do you block it.

Same here. I paid for that crap-cleaner stuff and now it's being mutated to spyware. Never again, sorry Avast. Even if you patch that telemetry garbage out of your code in a future release, the trust factor is gone.
