Re: I think Avast is a virus :-)
Well to be honest, the last time it happened I was able to run system restore.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
If you watch for the sneaky checkbox, you can catch it but you need to be super damn carefull when you run things.
To be honest, ccleaner is getting more and more malware like, if I could have something that would work even if I had to donate or pay a little for support maybe.
In the old days there used to be a program suite I used before it became evil crappy crapware by symontech.
It was called norton system works, it had a windows fixer, a reg cleaner, a disk cleaner, a disk defrag and disk diagnosis and a system info tool.
It did all I needed, it fixed issues before they became a problem, it was cpu intensive but it was accessible and in pure english.
That all changed in 2003 though.
There are still people that use it but its inaccessible crap now and is the first thing I get rid of.
Worst for users that run out of subscription they happily get virused, a cousin that got a virus got it so bad he had to reformat all his computers, and lost everything, it was revealed he had run out of virus subscription that week.
Its also why I won't go to subscription software, people do run out not intentionally but they do, its not fair to not be protected because they forgot, even if the software went back to a semi non functional state but thats the way it was.

Then why has no other CCleaner user reported the problem not just on this list, but on the other two active Windows users lists I'm on? It doesn't seem plausible.
