Why does CCleaner v5.65 show up as virus and update is bocked by Zone Alarm.

It will be a false positive by Zone Alarm.

Every software that releases a new version gets one or two AV's not recognising the new version at first

It happens because they 'see' something different than they expect from that software and so are not sure if it's real or a fake.
Once the AV company gets it's finger out and updates their listing all is well again.

I've just submitted ccsetup565.exe to a VirusTotal check and all 67 AV engines that responded say that it's clean - including Zone Alarm.
