    I doubt CCleaner will change much as a standalone product - it's merely the intellectual content they acquired.

    I hope you are right Craig and I don't have to move away from CCleaner. With CCleaner I particularly like the option to keep selected cookies.

    Not sure if any of you guys have been through corporate mergers and take-overs... but I have... suffice to say, the reason for an aquisition is to enhance - CCleaner and Speccy will be fine...

    Yes I agree if they just leave it be and not make it the Bloatware that Avast has become.

    There was concern when Malwarebytes acquired ADWCleaner, that it would crumble. It's actually gotten much better. The ADW team is allowed to self-govern.
