version 5.43.6520

Not sure if that will help Bob, I am assuming that this was a planned feature in the newest version.

A new feature that can't be changed isn't a feature but an admission of "guilt". :)

I see no reason why they would go to the trouble to have these options if there is no way to disable them.

Looks like I will be sticking with the older version until Avast resolve this nonsense.

A little bit like the Avast  Privacy settings, but at least they can be unchecked.

I think this has been done intentionally (but only speculating atm) so only professional users of CCleaner are able to disable those options.

This could backfire by people continuing to use older or portable versions of the products.

Some may disable Active Monitoring which would result in CCleaner to not run in memory which I would assume would lead to no ads.

I've never used Active monitoring. :)

Snap, none of my installations use any of the three monitoring options, two of them because they are Pro options, leaving only the Active Monitoring.  I can't see the point in active monitoring I just run it once a week before I do my drive image backup.

Yup. One of the most respected and useful tools of the last decade has just turned into spyware.

I wonder if the portable version is the same?

I am uninstalling now.
