Re: Two cautionary tales, beware and a laugh.
Yeah, you need to tab twice to a checkbox and uncheck it and just make sure to do it the first time round else you will have to exit and relaunch the installer.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
ccleaner is part of avast now so we are stuck with it now.
You just have to be awake, the first tab will mention something about security, tab again and there is the checkbox, overshoot and the installer will look like normal and you have to exit and come back in.
I usually update first thing in the morning but if you are half a sleep you will probably miss it.
Sadly a friend used a lot of free cleaners, cleanmaster, puron, ccleaner, and his admin decided that all the free software he loaded including ccleaner was malware filled.
And told him to use norton which his work uses.
Trouble is the interface is rather to complex.
For whatever reason some of my friends used norton at home and still use it.
Especially with the cpu slowdowns and patches, norton is just not something I'd use.

Firstly the latest version of Ccleaner is becoming a pest. it seems to be able to unilaterally decide to install avast anti virus without telling anyone until its too late. Unchecky did not spot it and yesterday, I twice had to take a machine back a day to get rid of it as I'm sure you are all aware how unfriendly the uninstaller is to screenreaders. Its left bits all over the machine, including in some folders labelled Cisco for some reason.
