By Windows Update cleanup are you talking about the standard Windows Disk Cleanup. I use Disk cleanup maybe once every few weeks.

Almost but not quite. You need Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems KB2852386 (or 32 bit if 32 bit system) installed to gain WU Cleanup functionality in Disk Cleanup (cleanmgr.exe)

As I said, I disabled everything except disk wiping and I still had to close a CCleaner process in Task Manager. It also inserted itself in the start menu and I had to remove that. It's like a bloody virus!
Are you using the latest version?

The first version that had monitoring included in it had some bug.
Disabling Monitoring didn't disable the startup entry for it.

I had to manually disable it (Tools > Startup).

All the subsequent CCleaner updates have worked correctly (on my PC and VMs).

We run CCleaner multiple times a day to clean up after each IE11 session my wife does. CCleaner is at the current version and we have not had any issues with the March Patch Tuesday updates. This is the free 64 bit version with System Monitoring and Active Monitoring checked on.

I have the KB2852386 for removing outdated updates
Again I run disk cleanup quite regularly and haven't noticed any issues.

Noted, the information I posted was for the sake of the general forum population who might stumble across this thread and not know it.

Let me ask you a question, if I may, that may sound strange or unrelated but I have my reasons to ask: Do you operate your OS with UAC on or off and at what level? I have reason to suspect that this may come into play somehow. Thanks in advance!

I operate with UAC on at Admin level & notify me when programs try to make changes.

I have UAC set to default - Notify me only when programs try to make changes to my computer.
