Over at Emsisoft, one of the members stated that even if you installed the 32-bit version of Ccleaner the malicious code wouldn't run if your OS was 64-bit.

If this is true then the number of infected users should be significantly lower than initially thought.


I don't use CCleaner, but should i have been concerned i would have scanned the system with multiple antimalware (Malwarebytes, HitmanPro, Zemana, etc...) and make a clean install if something nasty was found.

Uninstalled v33, then installed v34.

btw, I'm on 64bit, so I wasn't too concerned. Also ran some scans to make sure. No Malware found.:)

But there's some confusing blogs around stating different versions having this behavior. zzz
So uninstall permanently for now..
