    Sometime around October of 2020, Microsoft put out a patch that removed Flash from Windows as well.

    @Ghot,

    I applied the patch when it was first offered, but interestingly, each time I run CCleaner, I always see that it cleans something called 'Flash Player'. Of course, it happens so quickly, I can never read what it completely says.

    I've had no issues, PC functions very well. Is this something I should be worried about?

    I use CCleaner too. BUT, I never use the "Health Check". And when I run the cleaning tool... I always pause before hitting "Run Cleaner" the 2nd time, to SEE what it's removing.
    Same with the Registry tool. I always double check what it's removing.

    Thank you Ghot,

    I run custom clean, never health check, and it's always on the first pass that I see "Flash Player'. I will start analyzing, before clicking clean. Thank you for the tip. :)

    I wish you well.

    Change results to file list and save settings to .ini file. Like as shown here:

    Too Many Trackers

    Note: Personally I've ditched Ccleaner.

    Thank you, Callender. It was initially set to 'Advanced Report'.

    As for ditching it, I am leaning more and more in that direction myself. Years ago it was very good, not so sure it is necessary anymore.

    Take care, stay safe.
