    Is CCleaner still good? I stopped using it after the whole malware incident. I also don't trust Avast, who bought Piriform (the CCleaner dev), with my privacy. I switched to using Windows' built-in cleaning tool.
    I have not had any issues I can see..

    CCleaner is a very valuable asset when used wisely. Disk Cleanup is very good, too, but they are different beasts with some overlapping uses.

    Prevailing sentiment here on TenForums is that both the "registry cleaner" and the "driver updater" are best ignored in CCleaner, but there are many uses for this versatile tool, and I, for one, wouldn't be without it.

    Best to use the portable version as it doesn't "call home" and to ignore the registry cleaner and driver updater which is only available on a paid version anyway.

    I agree completely.

    Although I admit, I'm running a portable version, a couple months old.

    Still, I believe CCleaner offers value.

    I use the portable version too. It even auto updates to the same directory where you stored the portable version.

    We’ve made it even simpler to use Health Check in subsequent visits to CCleaner
    Driver Updater

    We’ve made it easier for you to know which drivers to revert if an update causes a problem
    This new revert flow will also help us to understand where improvements to driver compatibility is most needed
    General

    The PC info section now detects Windows 11 correctly
    An indicator in the app now tells you when your subscription is nearing expiry
    Fixed some uncommon bugs in license registration
    Fixed some Chinese character display issues

    Is that CCspeak for sending too much data home?

    Well that's not worth updating for, it's there own fault when they slam their own servers and DDOS themselves

    Latest CCleaner Version Released-cclean.png

    New update for CCleaner v5.85.9170 Released today.

    This version resolves a bug that has been causing high load on our infrastructure, with some negative effects to the product experience.

    Managing notifications

    We’ve made it easier to switch off a Smart Cleaning alert if you don’t find it helpful

    Keeping your drivers updated

    CCleaner now automatically scans for new drivers once per week
    To reduce confusion caused by different vendors’ version numbering, drivers now display date published instead of version (the version info is still in the Driver Details screen)
    Small accessibility and usability improvements

    Getting started with CCleaner

    We’ve added a short intro to the product to give newcomers a bit of guidance

    Smoother CCleaner experience

    We’ve fixed a crash that occurs when we try to clean Firefox that was installed with a non-admin Windows user account
    We’ve added a warning when trying to register the paid product while not logged into an administrator account
