What kind of cleaner?  

 

Ccleaner is safe 

 

you probably don’t want to dump a gallon of bleach on the mother board.

Yeah what "cleaner"  doing a "reg" clean could for sure cause you grief..   etc. etc.

 

Your going to have to give us some more details.. Did you read some article that said xyz was bad?  Did one of your buddies tell you they read something somewhere that said bla blah?

 

What is the what, what was the blah blah exactly..

I was wondering if CCleaner would be a good safe program to help me remove a bunch of junk files from my computer that Disk Cleanup will not do. I looked online and found that a lot of people seem to like it, but then I saw on a wiki page that back in 2017 or 2016 it was infected with a virus. Is this program safe to use? I need a program that can cleanup my computer and give me some control over what does and does not get removed not just remove whatever it feels like removing.

Yes. But understand I use then uninstall.  I don’t want garbage taking up resources or pluck out the stuff I don’t want running.

CCleaner had an "incident" a few years ago, but those issues are resolved.

You can download a the slim installer, or a version that doesn't need to be installed at all, from here: https://www.ccleaner.com/ccleaner/builds

Why not? Sounds like a fun experimentation to me.
