CCleaner always running in background without permission

Recommended Posts


I have been using Ccleaner for many years. Recently I noticed CCleaner always opening two processes in my task manager.

I have version 5.52.6967. In the settings I have unchecked the following options below:

- Enable automatic browser cleaning

- Enable Smart Cleaning

- Run Ccleaner when computer starts

- Apply these updates automatically

- Show me notifications for these updates

--> Perform these updates manually

- Help me improve CCleaner by sending anonymous usage data


In my task manager I do not have CCleaner enabled at system startup.

Why does CCleaner keep opening two .exe processes? I no longer trust CCleaner given the numerous online articles mentioning "Avast" in conjunction with sneaky background operation.

I hope others read this and give input.
