CCleaner Always on ?!


Recommended Posts

Hi, sorry for starting another thread on this one, but CCleaner is always on (MacOS Sierra 10.12)
Even if I shut it down in the activity monitor (end process), it immediately restarts.

I don't want it to constantly try calling home or Google analytics (little snitch monitoring) and eating my resources.

It's a lovely app and I'm grateful/ happy that it is available for Mac (THANK YOU VERY MUCH)

but I like to use it when I use it...

PS: I disabled it in Startup

Thanks for your help

Do you have automatic updating or check for updates enabled?
They run in the background and check for updates (once every six hours I think).

Smart Cleaning (Clean your browser on a Mac?)  also runs on the background.

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