If you like me, are a regular user of Piriform’s system cleaner, you may have noticed the new CCleaner privacy menu in the latest version of the program. This happens to be the second update for the popular tool, which is quite rare to be honest.
Piriform is known to usually stick to a monthly update schedule for CCleaner, but about a week ago things changed slightly. The Avast owned company released version 188.8.131.52, and this update was dubbed as an “Important Fix For Chrome”.
The reason? Well the previous version (5.42.6495), released almost a month ago, was found to be causing critical errors related to Chrome. These bugs resulted in Google [...]
Piriform CCleaner has been updated to version 5.14, which happens to be the first monthly update in 2016.

Piriform has released a new update of its popular cleaning tool, CCleaner, which brings the version number to 5.13.
Once again the developers have not added any new features to the app. The new version, just like its predecessor, happens to be focused on improvements to the cleaning modules.
