CCleaner / Piriform Software — ccleaner
Do not buy piriform/ccleaner products - infected!
I have used and recommended piriform's ccleanerproducts for about two years, they have been very good. I just downloaded the renewed subscription and fpoujnd theosftware to be infected -
I nearly lost my computer.
To save it I had to find and buy a special uninstall program software that cost the same as the ccleaner did! It worked - saved my computer. But i'm out twice the price of the ccleaner anmd a fullk day's aggravation and fear of loss of my system.
Infected! Do not buy piriform ccleaner do not buy! Infected
Piriform/ccleaner has no responsive customer service, I searched for hours for contact and finally found two deeply obscured - there was no reponse to my pleas for help!
During this scare I discovered that just under a year ago avast bought out piriform and purposely infected all the products so as to increase sales of avast products!
Fraud and dishonor - even among the producers of good software products is very alive and rampant!
Do not buy piriform/ccleaner products - they are infected!

Don't have a name for the infection(s) as yet, but; causes slowing of the computer, freezes (stops for a minute or more), seizures (frantic jiggles on screen and when on Internet changes of pages), and short pauses (a short moment of freeze) I can only describe as "hiccups"! It effects the computer both on and offline. It does not appear to be real-time handling by an interloper. Infection also seems to be changed randomly according to others who have found CCleaner to be infected with different results. None of my several internet security ware, malware, ad/spyware, or systems cleaners can find it. Though, the problems did mitigate to a more useful condition with the total; removal of CCleaner.
