CCleaner* Alternatives (*ruined by avast)
« on: May 27, 2018, 04:57:34 PM »
Hi friends of Comodo,

I was a loyal CCleaner since I met Windows OS. I thought, CCleaner must come bundled with all Windows OS.
So much water flowed under the bridge ...

- Avast Acquired Piriform : https://press.avast.com/avast-acquires-piriform-maker-of-ccleaner

- After a few months later, Hackers hid malware in CCleaner software

- After Avast acquired CCleaner, do you know what happened? Avast started to put their malware* in CCleaner.
CCleaner becomes adware, here's how to avoid Avast ads

Please imagine, what would happen if all the things were made by Comodo  88) (bash**)

and at last, Piriform collects and shares analytics data with third-parties collected in CCleaner users  ;)
CCleaner update introduces Privacy options

Yeah, finally Avast made it! CCleaner is no more usable for me. They stopped to release portable version as well - which I use - after the latest release. I am not going to wait Avast's next step on CCleaner...

Personally, I found "Privacy Eraser" as best alternative right now.
Do you know any alternatives? You can disquss under this topic.

Thanks,
yigido

I thought ccleaner/piriform would have solved the problem. Oh, that is by no means a problem for piriform, on the contrary, it's a benefit to piriform.

I hope the following isn't true for comodo:

If you don't pay for a product/program than you are the product/you pay with your data.

I left zonealarm because of similar problems (for myself) and changed to comodo. Sometimes it was a "hard" time with comodo (as far as I'm concerned as an absolute layman - but it was worth the effort - not an easy program for beginners or normal users who only want security and protection without having to worry about it any further because of lack of time or other reasens/hobbies)

I've been using IObit for a while it is simple and doesn't use a lot of GPU memory, by me it is a good chance to try it, I am not sure if they have a trial, but it is worth using, way better than knowing CCleaner. Also a friend of mine asked me about windows 10 registry cleaner, and I told him about it. AVG PC TuneUp is good too, the features it has and the way it cleans the registry si worth using, maybe a little bit expensive.But for those that don't want to keep unusable stuff in their computer IObit and AVG are good.

While thats up to you.  IObit has a bad reputation for adware and I dont have much nice things to say about avg pc tuneup (This is just my opinion only)   You should give privazer a try.  Its free and has a great reputation.  Pick and choose line by line on what you want cleaned
 https://privazer.com/en/

If your going to continue using on IObit i would recommend blocking the following with the firewall and from hosts file

C:\Program Files (x86)\IObit\Advanced Systemcare\asc.exe
                                                                           \register.exe
                                                                           \Asctray.exe
and for host files
Code: [Select]
0.0.0.0 www.asc55.iobit.com
0.0.0.0 idb.iobit.com
0.0.0.0 asc55.iobit.com
0.0.0.0 is360.iobit.com
0.0.0.0 asc.iobit.com
0.0.0.0 pf.iobit.com
0.0.0.0 98.129.229.186
0.0.0.0 www.iana.org
0.0.0.0 iana.org
0.0.0.0 93.184.220.29
It's hard being a crooked Admin when the files won't pass an md5checksum test.  But like any other good crooked Admin it can be done, it just takes time(and lots of it) and a few aspirins
