    Angry CCleaner3.04 and ZA Free 7 is being mischievous!

    Hi guys & gals,
    I'm using ZoneAlarm Free Firewall 7.0.483.000 and I use Piriform's CCLeaner 3.04.1389.

    I have blocked all access to everything for CCleaner as I noticed in the program logs it was sending outgoing data to peculiar servers including:

    * googlemail.l

    Amongst others...

    What is going on? I downloaded it from and I think it redirected me to Pirform's page (but I have downloaded infected archives from CNet in the past!).

    Any ideas?
