Recommended Posts

HI there ,

 

this is my first post here.

 

I have been using ccleaner from last 3 years, it is a great program.

Recently i start using avast anti virus free.

i found that ccleaner tries to remove avast antivirus related registry entries.

but avast dont let ccleaner to edit its registry data just because of it self defence technology.

why ccleaner wants to edit avast registry data.?

 

 

 

you will see these kind of lines in avast log file.

 

10/24/2013 8:35:40 PM Write access to registry key \REGISTRY\MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\aswFsBlk\ denied. [C:\Program Files\C Cleaner\CCleaner.exe]

 

please see attached file for more. or goto this link : http://pastebin.com/q5qfNvDb

 

i hope you will fix this problem very soon.

 

note : i m using avast 2014 RTM+ CCleaner 4.06 (without winapp2.ini) on Windows XP X86.

 

thanks!

It sounds like you're using the registry section of ccleaner. Will you confirm/deny this assumption for us to better aid you

 

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.

also isn't the RTM version a beta version?

Backup now & backup often.
It's your digital life - protect it with a backup.
Three things are certain; Birth, Death and loss of data. You control the last.

yes i m using registry section of ccleaner.

The cause of this "issue" here is that the Antivirus program is doing it's job. The entry appears in ccleaner's "issues" because you don't want to have the registry entries of the antivirus be easily identifiable, else malware could easily remove it.

In ccleaner you can right click the entry and choose to add it to your exclude list. Please read my signature for further understanding of how to use the registry section of ccleaner or any of registry effecting software.
