I downloaded the free cc cleaner - did analysis - did not do cleaner as it appears it would remove my Microsoft Office Home 7. I do not see how to cancel this. Please advise. Thank you.

Hello

If you have downloaded a genuine copy of CCleaner, it would never removed your Microsoft Office Home 7.

Let me know how you came to think that it would remove Microsoft Office.
After the analysis, there was a long list of what would be removed. Office was on that list. Now, I don't remember if the message said removed or cleared.

Hi Maureen

Usually those are just temporary files left behind after an update, you can safely delete what CCleaner suggests; I have been using it for years on weekly basis and never had any issue.

You will not delete your Office software, if you did, I would eat my socks !

Have a great day.
