I have Ccleaner on my computer and have heard that Microsoft now classes it as malware. Is it really malware? Is it just one version that had malware in it? Which version? Should I delete it from my computer?
Can you shed any light on this utility? It has been recommended so many times in the past.
Ccleaner is not malware, but it does things that Microsoft does not recommend, like cleaning the registry. Microsoft says that this is unnecessary and could lead to problems.
I have seen people post problems with their Windows PC (elsewhere) and Ccleaner is sometimes mentioned, along the lines of “Such and such does not work, but I use Ccleaner every day.” It makes me wonder whether there is a link. Perhaps they removed something they shouldn’t.
Ccleaner is a powerful tool and is best used by experts that know exactly what they are doing. My own opinion is that most people do not need it and are better off without it.
