CCleaner doesn't remove malware, it just cleans up temp files etc a bit.

I'd add Zemana, and Junk Removal Tool as well.

If you are looking for AV scanner/removal tools, here are a few others:
Emisoft Security Scanner
Kaspersky Malware Scanner
Nod32 Portable Scanner

A handy tool I use since Beta is Windows Repair Toolbox https://windows-repair-toolbox.com

Under the Malware Removal column is adwcleaner,junkware Removal Tool,Rogue Killer,HitmanPro plus others for removal of Malware

Also has every tool you need for fixing problems but if your'e not sure of a particular tool don't run

This Tool regularly updates with new tools added

Adwcleaner does a better than most AV programs and it's free.
