Was the best now don't use it I am a pro customer until my licence runs out - At the moment it's blocked by my firewall - Use Wise, Clean Space or Privacy Eraser - No points.

It used to be good, but since Avast got it, they put their malware inside. It's constantly turning itself on, doing monitoring, who knows what else.

I switched to the Wise products.

I have used ccleaner for years, but since it was purchased by Avast, its questionable whether this program that is supposed to increase your privacy actually hurts it instead.

I even purchase the pro version about a year ago because of the nagging and wanted to support this program that I have used for years, but the annual subscription thing just plain sucks and I will not be renewing and am now using Wise Disk Cleaner instead.

I mean, what is the purpose of the app calling home when it doesn't even update itself? I have to read about an update on fileforum and then manually update. Sorry ccleaner but after my one year subscription expires I may keep an OLDER version on a flash drive for emergencies but that is it.

Attention: Version 5.45 of CCleaner has been removed from its mother site! This version has been the subject of heavy criticism due to its invasive behavior and bad privacy policies.

Piriform has pulled back to version 5.44 and promised to improve on the above issues in future versions. The link to get the version 5.44 back is https://www.ccleaner.com/go/get_ccfree.

Still like this cleaner. Just have to be real careful on update install to opt out of crapware. I also block its access to internet with firewall, and disallow monitoring and autocheck for update. It is kinda slow on Windows 10 bootup cleaning, but overall effective still.

This is nothing but crapware and spyware. If you use this then you will be buying another PC. Stay far away from this garbage as much as you can.

On the paid version they opt you in to share info/analytics with other parties, you have to find to opt out section.Way beyond disgusting, & will never pay for this product again.

Pros: Used to be the best now no good points

Cons: Latest trick is for Avast to add cookies in CCleaner & then white-list them, this on a cleaning product - Dreadful behaviour from Avast who seem to have no decency or values & never learn either.

Bottom Line: Was the best now don't use it I am a pro customer until my licence runs out - At the moment it's blocked by my firewall - Use Wise, Clean Space or Privacy Eraser - No points.

Pros: Ccleaner was the best until Avast purchased it.

Cons: I downloaded the January 2019 update to Ccleaner and learned that Avast had installed their free anti-virus software. I did not ask for it, there was no notice that it was being installed, and I do not want this s*** on my computer. Avast has ruined what was once a great product.

Bottom Line: I will never purchase or use any Avast product. They suck!

Weilan

Pros: It's lightweight.

Cons: Contains malware from Avast that's constantly monitoring all computer activity.

Lacks thorough detection capabilities, it only scrapes the surface of what other junk cleaners can discover. It's always been like this. One had to install a plugin called CCEnhancer to boost its capabilities.

Bottom Line: It used to be good, but since Avast got it, they put their malware inside. It's constantly turning itself on, doing monitoring, who knows what else.

I switched to the Wise products.

Pros: This is still the most terrible program that is out today. It doesn't do what It says It should do It cleans your PC but It also damages your PC so It won't start up at all.

Cons: If you do It will destroy your PC use this program at your own risk.

Bottom Line: This is nothing but crapware and spyware. If you use this then you will be buying another PC. Stay far away from this garbage as much as you can.

Music4Ever

Music4Ever reviewed v5.43.6520 on May 23, 2018

Pros: Does a good cleanup job & always has.

Cons: I bought the Pro version & they have the sheer temerity to opt me in, (I had to uncheck boxes to opt out) to share info/analytics with other parties. It was pure chance I saw the new options. This is way beyond decent behaviour on a paid product, I will never pay for it again. Disgusting!

Bottom Line: On the paid version they opt you in to share info/analytics with other parties, you have to find to opt out section.Way beyond disgusting, & will never pay for this product again.
