At least those older systems will continue getting signature files. The problem with using an older system is a big lack of choices when it comes to antivirus, some users may even have to resort to using something they don't like at all.

perhaps the fine windows xp further up only as offline-system ...

but with security settings and configurations at the xp-services it could be safe B) up to a certain degree

Versions of CCleaner Cloud; Die Toten Hosen - Altes Fieber

It's been discussed on the forums elsewhere before that if someone knows what they're doing with some layered security even old XP isn't as unsafe as some would try to make us believe.

The problem with it however is the lack of new web browser support, and that some websites won't let you use them if the OS is XP, no proper support for modern SSD's since it doesn't support the Trim command, etc.

It was however surprising that Mozilla seemingly pulled the plug several versions earlier than people were led to believe in Firefox ESR.

But it isn't easy. 

The CCleaner SLIM version is always released a bit after any new version; when it is it will be HERE :-)

Pssssst: ... It isn't really a cloud. Its a bunch of big, giant servers.
