CCleaner installs Avast

Anonymous 8 months ago • updated by Unchecky 4 months ago 9

In the newest update for Ccleaner the Checkbox for avast antivirus remains checked



Support for the new CCleaner version was added in Unchecky v1.2.


Confirmed.  Latest update today had an offer for Avast that was checked.

Upvoted on this one. The latest version of CCleaner installer contains an avast! installer. I used to have avast! but it's a resource hog.

Came home to find after updating CCleaner that Avast was installed. Unchecky apparently Un-noticed it. For those wishing to remove Avast completely, (unistall leaves lots of traces) download Avast uninstall tool from Avast directly. 

Reckon its time to say adios to unchecky for a bit :>(


Thank you for the feedback. Support will be added in the next version of Unchecky.


When using the link (bottom right) in Ccleaner, it directs to this link


then you have to click down on No Tanks, which is heading towards


click on download. And we get a link at FileHippo


And in this case, when installing Ccleaner, Unchecky does not work, to uncheck the box for Avast.
Maybe because I use FileHippo in general ?  

The best for Ccleaner is to go through the official website of Piriform



http://www.ccleaner.com/ccleaner/download/standard  (the download is done automatically)

When Ccleaner is installed, Unchecky works and clears the box

About Avast and the purchase of Ccleaner. The contact is established. it shows that they will not do anything to remove the Avast check box in Ccleaner. This is not worthy of a major provider of Antivirus. Who should know that only one antivirus is used on his machine! but it's like that.

True, I Downloaded the CCleaner Installer, unzipped it using 7-zip, and found a link to install Avast, and found 'Google toolbar installer' inside the installer. I can't provide a link because I don't know if Piriform might be able to sue, but unzip the latest installer, search in explorer 'PF' and look for an exe file. Screenshot https://ibb.co/b51CKm

This discussion is valuable for every Windows user.
