CCleaner Update 5.72 September 24th, 2020

New CCleaner Update!  AGAIN  2nd this month!
Cleaner version 5.72 has appeared.  

Click on the link below.  Chrome will automatically start a download.
Google Chrome pops up Microsoft's Save As window.  Make sure you know where it is going (the folder name) before you save.


Watch quickly the small pop-up that opens in the bottom left corner of my blog web page. Run the downloaded file by clicking on its name in the bottom left corner.  

This version of CCleaner does not try to install other products.  BUT!

Check your settings.  Click on Options then Privacy.

Uncheck all the boxes.

Delete the downloaded file after you are done.

New Avira Security - September 3, 2020

Avira is beginning to download and install Avira Security.

This will replace our old Avira AntiVirus.  Avira Security contains and runs Avira AntiVirus but also has many more features.

Most of these features are OFF because it is the free version.  They are using these features to SELL you the Premium or Prime version.

Just like the ads we have always ignored, we are going to ignore the "prompts" Avira Security pops-up.

"Run a Smart Scan", "Your smart scan found 6 issues to fix".  These are clever ways to convince you to buy.  We don't buy.

You do not need to run a Smart Scan.

Your AntiVirus program is still running. It is still protecting you.
