How can I stop ccleaner from doing me favors?

Recommended Posts

yes.

turn off monitoring, disable auto-updater, create firewall rules, and/or use portable version.

it all depends on what you want CC to do for you.
what version do you have?

 nor do I want it to update itsself, without me doing it.

FWIW, the same thing happened to me. My CCleaner (free version) silently auto updated yesterday from 5.43 to 5.46 without any prompts or warning. I probably wouldn't even have known it updated if I didn't happen to notice the version number change. I had all the usual settings disabled (monitoring, auto update check, etc.) as well, so the update came as quite a surprise to say the least. I didn't however disable the so-called emergency updater in Task Scheduler (which I now see is a popular suggestion) or create firewall rules so the emergency updater is almost certainly the culprit.

These would be the settings I have used for years.  CCleaner chenged or ignored them... 

There will be snow in hell, before I would turn on monitoring! CCleaner did that!

THAT is what I want to do something about !!!!!

 

I have reset everything and will see, if the see if those settings will change again...
