What are your thoughts about Glary Utilities vs CCleaner vs Wise Cleaner?

I use to be a fan of CCleaner, but I foresee things going sideways and I am thinking about jumping ship...Sadly....

Any help and insight would be much appreciated!

it's a very thorough cleaning app with many more features, maybe you don't need. Just try it
before cleaning, please read all the options because some of them might be too aggressive or might significantly slowdown the cleaning process (for example, delete prefetch or optimize winsxs, drive optimization = defrag)

My FortiSandbox Appliance told this program to go away.. Not sure what to make of it, but I never ignore my sandbox. I did find him talking about possible FP's here but it still doesn't comfort me so I will take a pass.

I don't know but I have been using this app for so many years and I haven't seen any suspicious activities. Perhaps, it manipulates cmd and scripts to during the clean up process and it requires admin account so these make it a bit suspicious. For many years, none of the reputable AVs have detected it except some FPs
I think fortisandbox is prone to FPs sometimes. Similarly to ESET with PUP detection enabled, it almost wiped out most of my daily used programs

FortiSandbox is not prone to FP's. It has a pre-screening system that takes a mere millisecond, but eliminates most of the FP's by examining specific parameters of a program. If those parameters aren't met the file is tossed into the sandbox for further evaluation - automatically.

In the last 12 months my FortiSandbox has evaluated 102,000 files. It's triggered approximately 4 alerts in that time. One was Ccleaner in June, which we know turns out to not be an FP. But when triggered I immediately purged Ccleaner/Agomo from my network, which turned out to be a good decision. It's triggered on Panda, but we know Panda has been up to funny business and riskware activities lately. I can't remember the other file, but more recently it triggered on Bullguard which I WILL accept as an FP. So 1 confirmed FP out of 102,000 files isn't anywhere near being prone to FP's. Especially for a complex, powerful, realtime sandbox evaluation appliance.

In the case of your cleaner, it surely could be my second FP in a year. Maybe, maybe not. But since it's a cleaner app I will go with trusting the sandbox since there are many alternative cleaners available. With that being said, I am sure the cleaner is just fine and works great! I will send it to our Fortinet lab for further evaluation and update accordingly.

A little warning: Diskmax cleans automatically, it does not let you review files nor settings after a scan, it just cleans ASAP.
And above all, it requires internet connection in order to clean, that is lame and suspicious for sure. Use with caution or avoid.

Wise disk cleaner,privazer and Kerish Doctor are better than Glary ! I don't like their stuff! not good enough to remove trash from my windows!also the last time i used cc was 4 years ago!the free version has adware!
P.s thanks to Andy Ful, I have 3 years key for kerish doctor: D I love this software! the best for me!in my opinion, it's even better than Wise Care 365!
