    It's does a decent job but it's update system is a real pain. Rather than silently updating a definition file you are told to download the latest version of the program each time and the old is automatically removed. It has been updated 4x this month already.

    Works a treat, picked up stuff other AVs and A/Malware programs didn't and a small footprint too.

    yes, I'm aware. But what it is good at doing is scouring the systems and cleaning junk files. Couple that with MBAM, and it's a pretty decent combination.

    Nice try? don't troll. it's unbecoming.

    Umm, Lord, you do realize that ccleaner is not intended to clean malware or viruses??? Nice try though. Overall great product though.
