    Tried this one?

    PC cleaner and privacy tool Privazer 4.0 released
    by Martin Brinkmann on May 04, 2020 in

    The developers of the PC cleaner and privacy tool Privazer have released Privazer 4.0, a new major version of the program, recently.
    I reviewed Privazer back in 2012 for the first time when it was released initially, and concluded that it felt like the big brother of the-then popular tool CCleaner.

    Closing Words
    Privazer 4.0 improves the program in several meaningful ways. New users need to spend some time initially going through the options, menus, and scan options while existing users will feel right at home again when they run the new version for the first time.

    Users who are looking for an alternative to CCleaner may want to give this one a try.

    Yes, tried it and it cleared all my cookies so I had to spend an hour re-logging into every site that I use! Never touching it again! There is nothing better than CCleaner I've tried them all. Period.

    Try wise disk cleaner and it has same cookies rules as Avast CCleaner.
    I usually clear out cookies since SSO and other login methods make use of your session id and its a privacy breach in the hands of wrong people. If you're using Face id then use Google Auto fill password manager otherwise look at Bitwarden or enPass or Lastpass.

    Adding these 2 entries to your HOSTS file will fix the slow startup issue with the latest CCleaner:

    Code:
    0.0.0.0 ncc.avast.com
    0.0.0.0 ncc.avast.com.edgesuite.net

    This is the data that is sent from CCleaner (even the portable version) so make sure you block it from the Windows Firewall:

    Need "seeker" aka guinea pig. Avast have released CCleaner v5.67.7763 (28 May 2020)

    This version of CCleaner brings more cleaning to Firefox, improvements in the delivery of our Professional trial guided experience, and some stability fixes for Windows 7 users.

    Cleaning
    - Added optional cleaning of Firefox crash reports

    General
    - Fixed a potential crash when CCleaner Professional, Business or Tech Editions launch on Windows 7
    - Fixes to the Professional trial to improve the delivery of its guided experience

    Please report if you see something nasty running in the background pushed from Avast Malware Group. Hence the need for guinea pig:D Thanks.

    I don't see any of them running on my PCs since I've uninstalled Avast CCleaner.
    Also, I'm try HiBit uninstaller which has disk cleaning and optimizing things.
