While it is a big ad, there's a big button labeled download free version

Hello,    I have tried to do the update to the 5.48, I tried the direct download link for 5.62 and I continue to get the following screenshot, there was two different ones, have tried ignore, retry..It acts like it is updating but I am the same 5.44 version I was before.  I have Malwarebytes on my system, is that effecting it? Can you provide any other help?   Thank you

I have been unable to update my free CCleaner for some weeks. I get the message "error opening file for writing". I have tried the obvious such as uninstalling and reinstalling, but nothing fixes it. I run Windows 10 on a laptop with the latest upgrade

Yes, I read that before I posted and tried those. So far nothing has worked. But I am also having issues with my scanner. It seems to have been from the latest Windows upgrade.

Try the CCleaner Slim installer if you haven't tried it yet, some antivirus' don't like the bundled extras that are in the Standard installer:

Check that in Settings>Apps & features you have 'Choose where to get apps' set to 'Anywhere'.

There was a glitch in one of the recent Windows 10 updates that, for some people not all, had set this to 'The Microsoft Store only' - which meant they couldn't download/install anything that didn't come from the MS store. Setting it back to 'Anywhere cures that problem (If it is what is affecting you).

Sure glad I didn't pay for pro. Tried the 14 day trial but half way through it calls for IE  or enable Java and will not install. Does the world live and die by IE? It is not even on my Win 7 pro. Have not used IE since about when Fire Fox came out, 20 years maybe.  I only use Fire Fox and Java Script is enabled.

Ken,

You've posted on a year old thread but not to worry.

I believe that your problem is that you are still using Windows 7 and the Standard CCleaner installer needs later technology.

CCleaner still works fully on Win7 but you will need to install the latest CCleaner on Windows 7 by using the 'Slim' installer which doesn't contain the advertising screen(s) that Win7 doesn't like.

You can find the Slim installer here, third one down:
