Coincidentally, while troubleshooting another issue I happened to stumble upon that since 07/25 there have been 32374 (!) audit failures for ccleaner64.exe in Event Viewer as outbounds are blocked in Windows Firewall. (The latest Piriform portable version.) I keep it as a running process, minimized to the systray. All "phone home" options in the ccleaner settings are disabled.

I've been using ccleaner since forever and this is the final nail in the coffin and I'll just be running on demand from now on.
