This is why I don't use any. Windows Defender is more then adequate for most people.

CCleaner is horrible anyway.

Like said above, Windows Defender is awesome for being a free product.

If anyone thinks that using CCleaner is the same as having actually anti-virus then they are horribly wrong.

Since CCleaner is just a glorified way of getting all your Windows cleaning utilities in one place, it provides no sort of anti-virus protection.

CC Cleaner is fairly good for removing unwanted files and invalid Windows Registry entries from a computer. It can detect and clean up duplicated files in the computer. (which is pretty useful for old people and their downloads folder ) Other than that, it's pretty useless. Most of the systems infected through this attack were Windows 32-bit computers.
