    Old version of CCleaner no longer working in build 17763.168


    I have been using an older version of CCleaner . v 5.25.5902

    After updating Win 10 ver 1809 to build 17763.168, I was told that the old version of CClener will no longer work and I have to update to current version.

    Is that any danger if I do the CCleaner update ?

    I'm on 5.44.6575.

    That is NOT the most recent version.

    As of a couple of months ago, the more recent versions were having some issues and the version I now use does NOT have any issues, so I don't want to use a newer one for the foreseeable future.

    I can't recall the nature of the issues, but it was significant.

    You should look at the CCleaner forum on their site for any current info.

    I am gradually becoming less attracted to CCleaner and may give it up entirely.

    I can confirm that my 5.44.6575 runs without any complaints on 17763.168.

    Recent issues have included privacy concerns (again) after this...

    Thank you to both.
    I found ver 5.44.6575 from Neowin via google search.
    Installed and ran it.

    P.S. It tried to install Avast. Good thing I was paying attention to what was on the screen.

    I found the portable edition of 5.40.6411 by browsing the archives copies of Piriform's 'builds' page for Feb. 2018 at archive.org

    FYI 5.40 runs without complaint in 17763.168 too.

    Well, I was busy downloading 5.40 and didn't see yours until after I had posted. But then I did add info on how to find it today, so it wasn't an entirely wasted effort

    After the Black Friday Fly out adds I dumped 5.47. I found 5.38 in the archives, downloaded and it works fine. I also run Disk Clean and Storage to clean up the trash. And Yes! beware of the Avast installer that runs piggy back with the downloader.
