Yes, also here. Sent false positive report directly to HitmanPro support. VirusTotal: 2/71 which included Sophos (natch). Hopefully by later today, PrivaZer will be whitelisted. They're pretty good about these things.

Edit: it seems the false-positive was removed. This morning, HitmanPro is clear.

Does Privazer cleans the clipboard and its history?

PRO version only states more protection of privacy? Like what?

Thanks

Yes, I believe it cleans clipboard.

Old donors which is now PRO has the ability to clean shell bags, normal version doesn't have. I'm not sure if they added anything else to the new PRO now.

I know CCleaner can if you enable its clipboard cleaning but I cannot find in the features list on Privazer website

It's there in the logs when you scan to clean, I think so anyway. That's what I remember anyway.
FYI, I just tested Privazer.

No, it does NOT clean clipboard and its history.

I copy and pasted something on clipboard. Ran Privazer and clean it. After cleaning, I rechecked using Win+V and the clipboard still shows the items there

Found out about Privazer and just installed it. Is it safe to clean (default settings as advanced user) both drives in my laptop? Compared to Bleachbit and Revo Uninstaller Cleaner Tools options, is this one better?

I think it's safe, run the advanced setup wizard and select what you need/want to clean. It's pretty good, doesn't bork your system but only thing is folder preferences/view may be affected after clean.

Ran the scan and clean in default settings for both drives, and it cleared 30 GB of free space. Didn't find any changes in folder view yet.

fwiw, PrivaZer borked my system, but that was more than several years ago, understand what you are selecting and use with some caution, imo.
