If you're worried about whether an installer file for a program is infected, then after you have downloaded it, scan it at VirusTotal ... https://www.virustot...gui/home/upload... before you use it to install the program.
CCleaner is a program that many people use to remove temporary files on their machine, and if used appropriately does not generally cause problems.
The only thing I would caution against with it, is the use of its "Registry Cleaner" function. It is a generally held belief in many help forums, that the use of "Registry Cleaners" of all types should be avoided, as their use often creates more problems than they resolve.

It's as safe as any other program of a similar type. If you use it properly it won't usually cause you problems.
No one can give you a 100% guarantee that any program is going to be 100% safe when run on your machine, because there are far too many variables that we don't know, that might affect the way a program interacts with the particular mix of programs and settings that are peculiar to your individual computer.

I've been using it for a long time, and everything it's ok. Why do so many people say it does bad for your system? As much as I know it's the best registry cleaner windows and it's used by a lot of people. I've heard then I might be compromised or infected with some kind of virus since I run a 32 bit Windows I didn't think I have something to worry about. More and more posts about this appear though, so I have some doubts, but I have never had issues with it, so I'm not sure what to do.
