CCleaner (free) update not working

  john bunyan 14:53 12 Sep 2017

I use the free version of CCleaner. The version I had was V5.33.6162. An update was offered, and installed theoretically but still kept the old version - not the 6207 that was offered. I tried twice, on 2 computers with the same result - (asks "do you want the new version?"). I do a custom install to miss out pinning to the start menu. Any other CCleaner users had this problem?

Managed the download on second attempt

Have to admit that I usually wait a few days before installing any update.

That gives any unforseen problems a chance to be sorted

Thanks both. I will try again in a day or two.

Been having the same issue on two different computers today. Will wait a day or two and try again.

Updated without any problem for me, I always download from Piriform

Updated, only didn't, this afternoon. Hadn't noticed till I saw this.

Just updated successfully by clicking through to Piriform from FileHippo's page.

It'll offer, but you're not forced to take it. Just click on No Thanks, then select the FREE version - left column of three.

D/L from Piriform and updated 10 computers without any problems.
