    Thumbs down New Ccleaner 5.34 --BEWARE

    Had to happen

    Beware of the new Ccleaner, its now got Avast bundled in and will install unless you are watching what you are doing, untick the box, and be careful which option to install from the center buttons -free or 14 day trial of professional.

    "light , powerful antivirus"

    If only it was still a light AV, without uneeded addons & scareware popups . Then I'd still be using it

    so how long before CC is riddled with popups as well.

    Just discovered as well. The same downloaded exe, on two computers it came up with the screen as I posted on another it didn't, weird.

    Oddly enough, my Smart Security picked up PUPS in the download, but Nod32 didn't.

    I'm sticking with using the minimal installer with 5.29. Still works fine, and no crapware.

    Was fine here. Altho it was already installed. I just updated it. I think you get the options if it's a new install.

    I use the portable version.

    And what's light and powerful about Avast?
