CCleaner Trojan.Nyetya not resolved


Recommended Posts

I have uninstalled my 5.33 version of CCleaner and updated to 5.34, as a new update was shown to be available. I had no problems with my 5.33 at this time. I used RevoUninstaller to remove CCleaner. So I then went to the Piriform website and installed latest CCleaner 5.34 and my Malwarbytes found trojan.nyetya and quarantined it. I uninstalled 2 more times and reinstalled and same thing happening. I even tried your link to the latest version and still get trojan.nyetya getting quarantined. Now what?

I checked out Piriform website and cannot find uninstaller.  OK, I was able to go C:/Program Files/CCleaner and CCleaner64.exe was still there.  I clicked on that and was able to open CCleaner.  I then uninstalled CCleaner.  I then reinstalled CCleaner 5.34 again.  4th time...  I was able to open it from the Recycle icon on desktop, as that is when Malwarbytes removes trojan.nyetya.  If I try to open CCleaner from the Recycle icon again, I now get an error saying explorer.exe application is not found, and it removes ccleaner.exe from C:/Program Files/CCleaner folder.
