You have got antivirus and firewall software installed?

1. Go to program files and check if there is any folder with the name ccleaner.
2. Uninstall ccleaner from add/remove programs.
Start >> run >> appwiz.cpl remove ccleaner. a full system scan using antivirus and spyware software.

delete temporary files and cookies .

i hopw it will resolve this issue.

for any further queries feel free to contact me .
i am working as technical support specialist.

The genuine CCleaner uninstall program is called UnInst.exe.
Even so, telling someone to execute a file which may be infected isn't that smart (that is what using Add/Remove will do, run the program's uninstaller) ...the spyware/antivirus scan comes first.

Depending on which program alerted you (Spybot in this case), this may be of interest click here

what antivirus protection do you have on there and has the other computer declared any infection on it?
have you run a squared yet?click here

malikbhai ;as to suggesting contacting people off forum , that is really suggesting that only one person has/may have the answer and wrong or misguided advise can be given with no one able to see and help

Sounds like a false positive. I agree with brundle - don't uninstall CCleaner. Check the "c/program files/ccleaner/ folder with a couple of antivirus/anti-spyware scans. I think you will find that it's clean!

(BTW brundle's link refers to Spyware Doctor not Spybot).

what scans have you done on the computer yet?
