Windows 10: Defender Quarantines Wise Disk Cleaner

    Defender Quarantines Wise Disk Cleaner


    I turned on the PUA protection and Defender now quarantines Wise Disk Cleaner which some on this forum recommend. I downloaded the program from here https://www.wisecleaner.com/wise-disk-cleaner.html, Kaspersky Total Security which I recently uninstalled never objected to Wise Disk Cleaner. Is Wise Disk Cleaner safe to use or not?

    See the Defender screen shot.

    Give this a read from Microsoft. I would not use it on my systems.

    Thanks - I've stopped using Wise Disk Cleaner too. Fortunately, I don't have the add-on programs mentioned in the link.

    Wise DIsk Cleaner is perfectly fine, I use it on my systems. I would ask for a second opinion scanner to see if it agrees.

    Majorgeeks carry the program and they would not do so if it had payloads.
