CCleaner site got hacked and then put malware into their app, even though it is owned by Avast!, the popular freeware anti-virus (and yes, at that time it was owned by avast not by Piriform). Not only that, hackers tried to do that again in 2019!Except for the fact that known safe sites occasionally end up with drive-by infections.
Anyway, I hope this solution works for you.
((After Piriform was acquired by Avast, in September 2017, CCleaner 5.33 was compromised by the incorporation into the distributed program of the Floxif trojan horse that could install a backdoor, enabling remote access to 2.27 million infected machines. Forty of the infected machines received a second-stage payload that appears to have targeted technology companies Samsung, Sony, Asus, Intel, VMWare, O2, Singtel, Gauselmann, Dyn, Chunghwa and Fujitsu. On 13 September, Piriform released CCleaner 5.34 and CCleaner Cloud 1.07.3191, without the malicious code.
On October 21, 2019, Avast disclosed a second security breach during which hackers tried again to insert malware inside CCleaner releases. This attempt was unsuccessful.))
(Just to say it is a legit news. I was there at that time when the first hack happend and it made the web panic about it)
EDIT: You can use Malwarebytes free edition, it has manual scan. Once you close it, nothing runs out of it. https://www.malwarebytes.com/mwb-download/thankyou/
