Good Morning for all Community.


Kaspersky now indicates in the PC cleaning menu that CCleaner is rarely run.

However I have been using this application for many years and several times a day.

I wonder why the KIS indicates this information that is false.


I'm using KIS (i) and CCleaner version 5.64 in the Windows 10 1909

Hello @JPEKaspersky

Welcome again!

Has KIS just started incorrectly reporting the CCleaner status or has this specific issue always existed?

Please let me know?

Thank you:pray_tone3:

Hello @FLOOD .


It happened once at KIS 2018 if I'm not mistaken, in KIS 2020 is the first time.


I have already uninstalled and reinstalled CCleaner and KIS 2020 again indicates that it is rarely used.

Hello @FLOOD  and thanks for your interest.:thumbsup_tone2:


I solved the problem a few minutes ago.


I uninstalled the installable CCleaner software and installed the portable version.


With the portable version of CCleaner, no longer appears as a problem in cleaning your PC.:clap_tone2:


I closed the ticket for technical support with this information.


Thank you for your always patient attention to my cases.:pray_tone1:
