CCleaner also anti-spyware/adware?


Recommended Posts

I assume CCleaner is NOT anti-virus? (like AVG, McAffee, NOrton, etc)


Can CCleaner be considered as anti-spyware/adware?

Other words, besides CCleaner, do I need other spyware/malware cleaner like Malwarebytes?

Ccleaner is a temp and junk file cleaner.


It is not a security tool in any shape or form.


It should just be considered as a part of your regular system maintenance.


You MUST use an anti-virus (Malwarebytes is not an anti-virus)


Using Malwarebytes alongside an anti-virus is a good idea.

CCleaner documentation can be found here
