Microsoft blacklisted CCleaner domain and does not allow it to appear in its community

The famous Windows cleaning tool CCleaner, I believe that many people have used it before. But Microsoft has blacklisted CCleaner domain and does not allow it to appear in its own support community.

Jo Val, the founder of the Italian website HTNovo, is also one of the Microsoft community administrators. He revealed that the community administrator received an E-mail notification that Microsoft added 11 domain names to the blacklist, and the CCleaner website is one of them.

However, he didn’t disclose the reason why CCleaner was added to the blacklist.  The Microsoft community will not recommend CCleaner will not from today. In the Windows XP/7 era, CCleaner was one of the most commonly used optimization tools.  However, with the popularity of Windows 10, the demand for such software has dropped a lot. CCleaner was originally a free tool, but since Avast acquired it in July 2017, Avast started to add pop-up ads, which greatly affects the user experience.
