As well as Hazelnut's suggestions.

If you are using an antivirus other than Windows Defender then what is it and what version is it?

PS. You do not need to uninstall CCleaner before reinstalling it.
Download the latest installer from the builds page: https://www.ccleaner.com/ccleaner/builds
Double click the downloaded installer to reinstall CCleaner over the existing one.

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

If the Uninstaller still doesn’t work after those fixes then you can try Revo Uninstaller free & uninstall it with that. The good thing is that if the Uninstaller still fails you can still scan for leftovers which will force uninstall CCleaner. Then install a fresh download of CCleaner.


Windows 11 Pro 22H2. CCleaner Pro. MalwareBytes Pro. Defender. Macrium Reflect Home.
