Any idea why the laptop cannot update ccleaner?
Error message has something to do with writing issue.

Do a System Restore Backup in Windows
Do an uninstall and have Wise do a registry check .
For now , only choose the ones that pertain to CCleaner .
Uncheck ALL others

Knowing exactly what the message says could help.



PS: I don't use CCleaner or any other tool like that.

I use CCleaner in conjunction with MalwareBytes. No problems on my Windows or Apple machines.

I use Bleachbit, It's free and it works like the original version of ccleaner, without the bloat and processes always running in the background.

Ummm,
CCleaner DOES NOT run in the background
Not unless you check off the "Start with Windows Option"
It is "On Demand" by default

What is your Internet Security Suite ?
Or , do you use Microsoft Defender for both ?

making shortcuts for things like the built in disk clean up tool would be the smartest choice.
all these cleaners don't do anything your pc cant already do.

Actually , they do more than just what disk cleanup does.

Windows 7 Pro at work, Windows 10 Pro at home. I never reinstall (or do a clean install, my home computer had originally Windows Vista, was upgraded to Windows 7, then to Windows 8 and finally to Windows 10).
And I have almost 300 programs installed. The first version of Windows 10 wasn't able to show more than 256 items on the Start Menu, so I couldn't see all my programs and had to create a small program myself to have an easy access to them all.

Gotta say man, don't listen to all these folks, just get one antivirus program. My favourite is AVG. forget all these little programs for this and that because your antivirus takes care of all that

But the main reason is you can't run more than one AV program on ur computer, they will conflict with one another and both will be useless

Hope you heed my advise and quit screwing around with ur computer, lol if it works don't fix it

I don't use a security suite. I rely on Windows Defender for the PC. I just use common sense when browsing the web or opening emails, links, etc. I have never had a problem on either OS.

Windows Defender IS a Security Suite.
Anti-virus- Check
Firewall - check
BTW , that is what I use .
Already there , free , and very good

And out of all those 300 programs not a single registry cleaner? Do you ever perform other OS maintenance related tasks?
Perhaps a disk cleanup every once in a while? Maybe some driver updates through 3rd party software? Just curious

Maybe, but if I have one I do not use it.

Yes, but I prefer to do it manually.

Yes, manually.

No, driver updates are done manually, directly from the maker.

How critical are the updates for CCleaner?

I suppose that depends, if an update is a correction to a bug it's more important than an update that only adds a couple of functionalities.
