Thank you for using Trend Micro Security Product! Both of the software that you mentioned are not in conflict with Trend Micro Security software. CCleaner Professional Edition is a tool to speed up your computer and free additional storage space by cleaning computer registry and browsing history; Adware removal tool is a tool to identify and remove adware, unwanted apps or browser add-ons on your computer.

You can refer to their product pages below and decide if you would like to uninstall them or not by yourself.

In addition, here's a support article contains the list of programs that can cause conflict with Trend Micro Security software: Programs to remove before installing Trend Micro Security - You can press Ctrl Key + F Key on your keyboard, and type any software name in the open field to see if the software is on the list.

Hope it helps!
