    My Windows 8 computer freezes while using CCleaner


    After two refresh and one clean install of Windows 8 within a two-week period, my computer freezes while I'm running CCleaner. It always stops at the same file:

    C\User\AppData\Local\Temp\_ME149482\PyWinTypes26.dll

    First few minutes, I can still use my computer, but after that, I cannot print, cannot open Task Manager, cannot shut down the computer. After numerous attempts, I'm able to close CCleaner, but my computer remains frozen.

    follow that path and delete this part [_ME149482\PyWinTypes26.dll]folder and all ,it should not affect anything as no programs except nasty ones run from windows temp folders

    Yes, that's what I did. I've opened XYplorer, found that folder and deleted it, and all my issues with CCleaner were gone.
