Re: latest CCleaner

cédric Paulet

Good morning,


Ccleaner installs avast by default. It’s very annoying becose avast interface is very innacceble with svreen readers, like most antivirus software. However, windows defender is very accessible. Why most antivirus software becomes less and less accessible with screen readers? Now, the uninstallation of avast require sighted assistance now.

Best regards

Hi John,


It does very basic cleaning by default, but you can make settings changes to tell the program to do more.  The new programs aren't very easy to navigate and you neeed to do various cursor / keyboard gymnastics to navigate the program to change the settings.  It seems like the newer this program gets the worse it gets to navigate with Jaws or that other 4 letter screenreader.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go Dodgers!
I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.

Having not used this program before,maybe this is anobvious question.
But, how does it know which files need to be deleted and how does it
avoid delting files that are necessary to the registry?
