    The way I handle CCeaner updates works well for me. List of changes are enticing but in the particular case of CCleaner, unless something breaks (and I would know if something dont work right), I am fine staying put.

    Consider trying this. (Be careful with options/ settings if testing)

    Download HDCleaner 1.278
    HDCleaner - CCleaner alternative

    Maybe watch the video here:

    Latest CCleaner Version Released

    Skip to around 1 min 56 seconds to see what Ccleaner finds after running the others.

    Hi Callender. Thanks for the links but I am happy with CCleaner, I am not switching or thinking about switching programs. I am not the type of user that test many programs or installs uninstall programs all the time. I hardly ever change programs, I don't like doing it. I know what I like and keep using what I like until something happens. I am going to give you something about me that tells you a lot about the user I am. I got my W10 on July 8th 2017, the (very few) programs I installed that day are still the same programs I am using today. I haven't switched any or ever installed anything new in my real system since that day.

    The very few programs that I tested since that day, all the installations have been done in a sandbox under Sandboxie. I like keeping the system clean from debris and leftovers that programs leave so I avoid installing programs. I am not a tester.

    Back to CCleaner, I like CCleaner, perhaps it is not the best or the strongest cleaner but that is what I like about it. I dont want the strongest cleaner. I want one that's mild and CCleaner is as mild as this type of programs can be. So, what you see as a weakness in CCleaner, I see it the opposite, I see it as whats attractive about it. The chances of the cleaner program breaking Windows are lower with CCleaner than using stronger programs.

    Earlier in the thread, I posted the story below, is about how the registry cleaner has helped me in the past. That story is recent. I gone through something very similar, 3 or 4 times during the years I used the program.

    Regarding updating CCleaner often. Sure, new versions might have fixes for bugs, introduce changes in cleaning techniques the program uses, and they are supposed to improve the program. Thats understood. But read this. I don't use antiviruses or scanners of any kind. In mid 2017 when the CCleaner version that was compromised was released, I didn't get infected, I didnt even get to download the infected installer. I never downloaded the installer because I don't update CCleaner often. On the other hand, you guys with the antiviruses and the scanners, you did download the compromised version and got infected if you executed it to update the program. It took more than 20 days after the compromised CCleaner version was released for scanners to begin flagging CCleaner as infected. That was a mess, which I only avoided it because of how I handle CCleaner updates.

    I don't update all programs as I update CCleaner. Some, like Sandboxie, I always use the beta and sometime I even gone with alpha versions when the developers asked me to test it. With Windows 10, I am doing it differently than how I handle updates in my W7. In W7, I do updates about a month after they are released, in W10, I do them as soon they come out. Firefox, I always wait a few days before updating but NoScript, I am always using the latest beta. And so on with the rest of programs I use. So, I do updates differently for different program but the way I handle each, and why I handle each program the way I handle it have reasons behind that makes sense to me. Regards.

    Sure - if you never update your software the old version should work fine.
