...and how do I make sure CCleaner (v4.08.4428) isn't deleting them?

System restore points are stored in a hidden folder called System Volume Information on the root OS drive. CCleaner will not affect them.

You cannot do anything to the file unless you boot from something else like an installer disk as it is protected, but you can see it if you set your folder view to include hidden and system files. HERE is how to do that in Windows 8.
