CCleaner and Malwarebytes


Recommended Posts

I have today got a warning from Malwarebytes telling me that PUP.Optional.CCCleaner is a potentially unwanted program. Is this a bug in CCleaner? An error in Malwarebytes? A malicious program using the CCleaner name? Or is CCleaner not to be trusted?

g'day simon and welcome.

you got that message when, installing or updating CC or doing a MBAM scan?
where did you get CC from?
CC can be trusted, but it has some free offerings when installing, Avast (and Chrome I think still) that can give false positives.

I am a paid-up user of CCleaner - Professional version 5.40.6411 (64 bit). I am also a paid-up user of Malwarebytes - Premium 3.3.1 updates current. I always uncheck the offer of free offerings when installing. I bought the professional version of CCleaner some time ago, so haven't slipped into the mistake of installing free programs. I believe updates for CCleaner are now done automatically.
