It's evidentally due to the bundled software in the free and test versions oft CCleaner - not the tool itself. However, after the past discussions of spying on users and collecting their data, I'm not sure if I further can trust into the product.

It's Chrome browser that Microsoft objects to being bundled, they want to push their browser on you. IMO :)

Yup, it's not a ccleaner issue but still I always recommend unchecking any tag-along software from anybody.
