    It appears CCleaner no longer provides downloads for versions released in the pre-Avast takeover era.

    For those, you have to go somewhere like File Hippo.

    I think 5.32 and earlier are pre-Avast. As far as I know, they work fine, but I don't know how long that will persist.

    No one knows, since Microsoft changes things around and these old versions are not aware of the changes.

    Do you know what! I disabled ccleaner in startup on task manager and its had the audacity to re-enable itself. I think my usage of ccleaner is rapidly drawing to a close.
    Kill that auto update check in Task Scheduler and check the startup with Autoruns. That should kick it straight.
