    ESET seems to be a bit twitchy.

    First it complained that I had to run it in IE.
    I tried to run it (3x) using IE and it crashed (3x) trying to install.

    So I downloaded the standalone installer.
    After I installed it, I let it run (it took 11 hrs to finish)!

    It complained about pretty much every tool recommended by a lot of the most experienced forum members on SevenForums, EightForums & TenForums.
    It auto-deleted my OpenSUSE ISOs (they could not be restored).

    I've used most of the items it complained about, for years, on multiple installs, with no mysterious network usage or performance issues.

    After all of that, I'm prepared to take the risk that the ESET result is actually a false positive.



    Eleven hours , holw cow , thats insane , i don't think it's meaningful either since i don't see any performance issues , it could be a false positive , i don't know but it does pick them up .

    Well I don't understand why Eset reports a google tool bar as possible harmful program if it finds it. Its just a search engine, nothing more. I don't know of any other virus scanner that reports google as a harmful program. Its results are highly questionable in my opinion, and I would not trust it much.

    Thats exactly right and why i said only Eset picks them up.

    I respect everyones opinion because my opinion is always very suspect and i don't even trust it , when you don't know anything about computers how can you have faith in that persons opinion ?

    Listening to me about computers is like listening to Rosie O'Donnell on how to avoid food , better options out there.

    Thanks for doing that .




    Did you have opt out options to avoid those toolbar's at the beginning ? I see your running Eset , it's the only one that seems to pick these toolbars up lol.

    Most who download CCleaner exe are insistent that they are not installed on their system but running Eset online scanner with the appropriate boxes checked will reveal them .

    I receive 4 separate instances of them every time i have downloaded the exe program , even when downloading direct from CCleaners website .

    Thanks for the post
    Ok , here's how it would appear to work. The first time Ccleaner is installed (on a new install for instance) it gives you the option to decline the toolbar. On subsequent upgrades of the programme it doesn't give you the option. It remembers your initial answer.

    Interesting thread from the Ccleaner forum. http://forum.piriform.com/index.php?...43294&hl=nod32

    Is this new?, seems to be. During Ccleaner installation this appears.

    Thats odd , i am always extremely careful with avoiding toolbars etc.. and i have always opted out , however, if i go and download the exe program now i am guaranteed to get those toolbars installed lol.
