Today's release has had other report that monitoring won't turn off.  Hopefully the developers will fix this as it wasn't broken til today's release.

 

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.

I found a workaround, I assume you already unchecked monitoring and kill the ccleaner process in task manager 

I've done this both on my desktop windows 10 enterprise ccleaner free v5.45.6611 and laptop windows 10 home ccleaner pro v5.45.6611

1. Delete the file or Move file different folder C:\windows\system32\Tasks\CCleaner Update.exe

2. Disable or delete ccleaner update on task scheduler

This thread is from 2 years ago, things have changed.

As well as the Active Monitoring above - In v5.74.#### if you don't want to see the icon in the system tray then you also have to turn off "Keep CCleaner updated automatically".
PS. That doesn't use many resources by being left turned on and the icon sitting there, it just checks once every 12 hours if there is a new version.

Worried about 'Tracking Files'? Worried about why some files come back after cleaning? See this link:

Yeah I saw it was open long time ago, but as I was used to untick this Monitoring parameter in the past, I was thinking it was a bug.

I don't want each app keep running in background to auto-update, even if it's low resources consuming when every apps do this, you have GB of RAM wasted + CPU time + Internet bandwith. When you imagine that each CCleaner users who let this by default, you obtain a participation in the huge waste of electricity, global performances, etc...

So no thanks ! I definitly prefer update just at the launch or use Chocolatey or Windows store auto updates when available in the store ;)
