Wise reg cleaner - caution

Hi,

Wise Reg cleaner has decided an entry is safe to remove from 7000 x64 - if you do remove it, you won't be able to use the control panel :

-wisecpl2009-01-12_204346.jpg

This is the entry :

-wise2009-01-12_201706.jpg

Suggest you exclude it - seems fine after that:

If you do remove, you can use the Unfix option to restore the entries.

Strange,

It found the same thing for me as safe to delete, but Windows 7 would not let it delete that entry though. I have Wise running as administrator to. I have already added it to the exclusion list though.

Thank you,
Shawn

Hi Darkassain,

You're right to bring that up.

For those of us who like to live dangerously - and some of us do - just thought I'd point it out.

Shawn - I didn't have it to set up to run as admin under properties , if that makes any diff.

SIW2,

I would not think it would. If anything, I would have thought that having it run as administrator would allow it to delete the entry.

Hi,

UAC is on.

I always have the app. do a backup before deleting anything - then there's system restore - then there's my backup images of the partition ( I keep them up to date ) - and there's always the install disk as a last resort.

For the benefit of anyone else reading this - if you are going to use an app. that deletes reg. entries , or shortcuts, etc. suggest you take similar precautions.

Shawn - i just tried it again.

I gave it Run as admin. under the properties for the .exe.

I launched it with one click from the Taskbar. It allowed me to delete the entry again.

I always check before deleting anyway - I had deleted that suspicious one deliberately to see what would happen.

Oops, I think I just posted it under General discussion - as it's only free if you get it today.

Do move it if you think it should be somewhere else.
