PostSubject: Win10 creators update removed CCleaner!   Sat 11 Nov 2017 - 22:48

Just an FYI:  after the Win10 "Creator's update" recently completed, CCleaner was missing from my system.

No start menu option, no folder/files, no CCleaner registry option.  No log entry about CCleaner, as well.  I *did* upgrade my desktop wifi card after the update completed, so that could be a contributing factor, though I doubt it.

I've re-installed CCleaner and am now holding my breath expecting a conflict or other spurious behavior.  Will post here if anything of note comes up.

Maybe Microsoft had the installer delete any copies of it before update to be on the safe side due to:

On Sept. 13, Cisco Talos found that the official download of the free versions of CCleaner 5.33 and CCleaner Cloud 1.07.3191 also contained “a malicious payload that featured a Domain Generation Algorithm as well as hardcoded Command and Control functionality.

Well, on 5.36 now. Don't have a record of the previous (deleted) version. In any case, removal without notification seems heavy-handed if MS did it...

Good to see you joined, ajayjohn!

This is why I don't bother with windows updates that much, if the system works leave it alone.

I had to turn it off completely anyway so I didn't keep getting the prompt to update to windows 10, I love windows 7

I hear you, _Nite_. I made the switch to 10 and am sorry, overall. I hadn't checked for a while, apparently now there are tricks to "disable" Windows 10 updates.

But still no way to selectively choose updates you WANT applied.

I am also experiencing some strange behavior (such as delayed focus follows mouse behavior) since the update, so will be running extensive checks for virus and malware installations to ensure proper system function.

I also love Windows 7, but deplore Windows 10

There are some good updates arriving monthly for Windows 7, and it's worth installing them for online security reasons

Unfortunately, Microsoft is still trying to install Windows 10 telemetry updates into Windows 7, so be sure you switch off automatic updates, only update manually, and avoid the following which are still being pushed monthly, and especially if you reinstall Windows 7

KB2952664 (Win 10 update)
KB3021917 (Windows 10 preparation)
KB3068708 (Windows 10 preparation)
KB3080149 (Telemetry for Windows 10)
KB3112343 (Windows 10 push)
KB3135445 (Windows 10 push)
