CCleaner Portable

Submit portable freeware that you find here. It helps if you include information like description, extraction instruction, Unicode support, whether it writes to the registry, and so on.

Yeah, I was thinking the "download the zip, but if the zip isn't available yet download and extract the exe..." would remain as the instructions -- unless they start releasing the zip at the same time again, or stop releasing it entirely.

Yeah we might just list both operations. I didn't think of that...

As the program itself is under the "privacy tool" category that's ... a concern. I've added a note to the entry.

Betanews says it squarely:
OTOH, PAFuser reports in entry's comments he was able to block ads via the Windows firewall. One post above, agam says last version not connecting to Internet is 5.40.6411 (dated 2018-02-07)...

So all former Piriform products should next be marked as adware, maybe? :?

Better that then getting sued. What I find funny is that arne't backing down and instead just digging their grave deeper.

What does that have to do with the topic at CCleaner I posted? His first point says that we'll have control over what is being sent, all, some or none, so if it can be complete turned off then none of this backlash would have started in the first place.

I thought that would be clear: as the article pinpoints, most "anonymized" data can easily be traced back to individual users, so Piriform's claims don't hold much water to me. But if my post offends you in any way, I'll gladly move it elsewhere.

gHacks - Dont install or upgrade to CCleaner 5.45, for me the last tolerable version of CCleaner is 4.19.4867. Those who still insist on using it after Piriform was acquired by Avast are masochists who deserve no respect (the same applies for those who use Windows 10), all Avast products are indisputably adware and spyware.
