    Or use the default installer, uncheck the Google Chrome and install.
    Note that after that you will no longer see any ads even using the default installer in future updates ;)

    When most of Freeware is bundled with Adware, offering an Adware-Free version is admirable these days.
    Hats off to Piriform who still offers a Slim (= Adware-Free) version even with few days of delay.

    Yes, I have been using a version from January of 2011. Each new version of CCleaner increases the its usage data cleaning abilities. But this is something that is useless to me. I don't clean usage data - I find it useful to keep. I use CCleaner very occasionally to clean junk files, and internet caches. Whenever I install CCleaner, the first thing I do is uncheck all privacy cleaning functions and also cookies, so that junk files are the only things that are cleaned. It surprises me why so many people want to clean usage data as to me it seems pointless to delete it.

    To be honest, very occasionally I do clean history data, but I only do this every few years.

    I did just update to the latest version as a few of the 20 + releases of CCleaner released since the version I was using improved the registry cleaner. The result was CCleaner finding 17 registry entries vs 16. Not worth upgrading for.

    As has been stated here numerous times, move your cursor onto that little block and then with one left click, that is ONE, you now have the slim version. geeez!

    want the Slim (= Adware-Free) version to
    Avoiding the Adware by not-clicking it when installing the Adware-bundled version is one thing
    and
    Installing the Slim (= Adware-Free) version is anotherthing.

    I realize that some people want the Slim (= Adware-Free) version to cease to exist...:gack:
    As we say, there is a -Conflict of Interests-...:gack:

    Most are, but not all. Scan it with everything under the sun if you like.

    siljaline, FileHippo is an official mirror for Piriform's products. See http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download

    It actually helps Piriform if people download from official mirrors (less hosting costs).

    Apologies, I was not aware that Piriform still had third party download sites.
