Recently, Microsoft tech troubleshooter extraordinaire Gov Maharaj was troubleshooting problems for Windows users via The Defrag Show on Microsoft’s Channel 9 website.
He was attempting to help a person who had issues upgrading his computer from Windows 7 to Windows 10 – and had booting problems, so he was suggesting the software and drivers the user should remove from his computer before trying the upgrade process again.
Maharaj began to list the programs, and when he reached CCleaner, it was clear from his tone that there’s no love for this program at all.

CCleaner has stood the test of time and passed with flying colours and I don't think a few words from him will make much of a difference to its popularity.
Here are examples of opinions previously expressed in the Community.
p.s. Not sure that Daniel would use, or recommend its use?
I have a pretty high amount of distrust of almost all system tools that 'clean out' the computer... so very many of them DO cause problems, are spamware, adware, etc etc. But CCleaner is one of the few I trust.
Definitively one of the 2 or 3 of the best out there.
CClearner on my PC. Both compliant one another and as you stated keep
one eye open as to what is being deleted and of course make a back up
prior to uninstalling or cleaning.
