    Need "seeker" aka guinea pig. Avast have released CCleaner v5.74.8134 (11, Nov 2020)


    This version comes jam-packed full of exciting improvements for all our users!

    Cleaning
    • This release contains an essential session cleaning compatibility update for Chromium browsers such as CCleaner Browser, Google Chrome, Edge, Brave, Opera, Opera GX, Avast Secure Browser and Vivaldi.
    Automatic Updates
    • Updates to CCleaner will now be applied automatically in CCleaner Free.
    • You can review your Update Preferences in the ‘Options’ → ‘Updates’ menu.
    • If automatic updates are enabled, CCleaner will run in the background and check for them twice daily (if you run CCleaner it will always check for an update first).
    Update Preferences
    • We have simplified the ‘Options’ → ‘Updates’ menu down to two settings: one for controlling automatic updates and another for controlling update notifications.
    CCleaner Professional
    • If your license has expired, we will occasionally show you a reminder when you run CCleaner.
    General
    • We fixed a bug where text in warning message boxes was highlighted.

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

    ^^^ Have been using some of the recent versions without problems of any sort. Using firewall rules to stop whatever they may want to harvest (at the low cost of a 5 seconds wait before CC is ready, as it tries and fails to connect to base). Will try the latest version, am not expecting anything special, will report if so.

    ^^^ All seems well after a few days use on w8.1 & w10, am trusting it to do it's good job, as usual. Time until ready (due to firewall blocking the phonehomes) is now nearly 15 sec. Accepted & no problem. Also a scheduled task to delete.
