Ccleaner - 11/22/20 09:19 PM

If "Smart Cleaning" is enabled does it mean Ccleaner runs in the background all the time ??

I don't really like that - so is it safe to disable it and just run Ccleaner when I want to ??

Thanks in advance for any help smile

I've only ever used ccleaner for its registry cleaner, and only when I wanted it to clean something like an incomplete uninstall that I suspected was causing a problem.
Never had it run "in the background" for anything.

I found this info online:

CCleaner's Smart Cleaning feature runs as a background process (if it's enabled).

I can't think of any reason why you shouldn't just go ahead and disable it if you don't want this feature. I wouldn't want it running in the background either.

I don't like it running in the background and annoying me either. I disabled it ASAP.

Thank you all 😬

I've never had it running all the time either but realised it WAS doing so after the last Ccleaner update - and went to disable it.
But got a dire "warning" when I did.
So I came here for the darn good advice I knew I would get !! praise
