It's best not to let programs like that mess on with your registry. Deleting those few entries wont make any difference at all to your machine, neither will hundreds of such entries make any difference.

Eventually the software will delete something vital and your machine will crash.

My advice would be to uninstall that software ( The Advanced System Care), and leave your registry alone.

Windows 7 keeps itself running without any such spurious assistance.

Just keep regular backups.

Hi mike,
i thought it was a good program as when things seem to get a bit slow then ive run that n all has been ok. i use ccleaner mostly. but u say it should go. ok u obviously know more than me lol so ill get shot of it.
as 4 backups. i dnt like using backup software. take a look at my name n u may understand i end up gettin confused wid all the diff locations 2 backup. i end adding the same things in the backup. i do hav copies of all my progs n docs on an external drive tho n windows on disc. im building up the patients to 2 a clean install so i can do a system image but aint got round to it yet.

cheers 4 the advice. i will unistall advance systemcare

Many people use these programs in the belief that they will speed up their machines, or keep them "clean". Unfortunately, these programs cause a lot of failures. Allowing such programs to delete stuff from your registry is a very bad idea.

You only have to set the backup software up once, and it will do what you want automatically after that. If you need help to set it up, then just post again, and either I or somebody else will help you with it.

For a clean up, Windows has its own utilities. One that many people ignore is "Disk Cleanup", you can get to this in a number of ways, but the easiest is just to right click on the drive and then open "Properties";



"Disk Cleanup" is next to the pie chart of the drive contents.

If you click on it it will scan your drive and then give you options to clean up the drive,







choose the options you want and click OK.

No, I don't know the Arcsoft product.

This is a very good backup freeware;

Free Download EASEUS Todo Backup Freeware and Trial version. Complete Backup and Restore Software for Windows & Linux.

I don't like the built in backup options on win 7.

Hi,

The backup program included is better than nothing - but is very inflexible.

You will be better using a free 3rd party app.

Mike seems to like Todo - I am not keen on it.

There are a couple of others that are well liked on this forum :

Macrium free is very small, fast and effficient. The recovery disc you run off from within thr program is also tiny, fast and very widely compatible:

Macrium Reflect FREE Edition - Information and download

Paragon free is the only 3rd party app. to align properly to nt6 rules during partition creation and image restore, it is the lowest in resource usage, and also the only app. to check the drive - warning of any issues whilst imaging.

That is because backup image corruption is almost always due to drive problems. You don't want to find out too late there is problem with the image. (Luckily it doesn't happen often).

Glad to hear it suits you. Very fast and reliable, I am very very pleased with it.

Be sure to make a recovery disc!



I make two, just to be absolutely certain!
