Bbacle there is a rescue function built-in for this purpose, try that.

Hello Roy,
Thanks for the info, but can you explain where the rescue function is?
Is it in Windows itself and if so, where?

Thanks again.

Hi Noel,
Thanks for the info, and I do housekeeping on my computer all the time.
That is why I had Advanced System Cleaner installed, and I did not allow it to run at Windows startup.
I only invoked it when needed.
It was the only registry cleaner that I have seen that would not wreck my file associations and other registry entries.
I have my IE where it deletes the temporary internet files when it closes.
I have a program called IE Privacy Keeper that deletes all the temp files when I shut down and when I start up Windows.
I have WinPatrol that keeps my computer running right by not allowing other programs to run unless I allow them to.
I have Comodo Firewall installed to keep programs from running unless I allow them to.

So, yes, I do housekeeping all the time on my comptuer.
And I constantly keep tabs on programs and files that get on my computer.

But, again, thanks for your help.

version

Hi Bbacle,
which version are you using, there all slightly different,
usually looks like the refresh page icon but anticlockwise,
it will then give you a list of logs, suggest you undo from TOP DOWN

Hi Roy,
I am not understanding what you are after.
What version of what?
If it is Windows 7 I am using Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.
I have no idea what the refresh page icon is or where it is found.
Can you clarify for me?
Thanks.

ASC - any version - is dangerous. Period.

Why is any version of ASC dangerous?
I have used it extensively for years with no problems.
I have used it on WinXP and Win7 and have had no problems with it at all.

Maybe the register cleaner that is built into it might seem dangerous, but I have tried other registry cleaners in the past, and I have found most of them very dangerous.
The ASC registry cleaner is the only one I have found that didn't wreck my registry.
(But then again, from what you have said, maybe it does, and I just didn't know it.)

Again I have used it extensively for years and have had absolutely no problems with it.
Some people claim they get BSODs from using it...I NEVER have.

But I have uninstalled it and it has NOT fixed my problem with installing SP3 for Office 2007.
So I will just leave things the way they are for now (since everything seems to be running fine) and not worry about the SP3 update.
If I need it that badly, I can go to WinXP on my dual-boot machine and use it there, since it did install there without any problems.

Again thank you guys for helping out.

Your current problems could well be related to ASC.
The problem with all Registry 'cleaners' is that they are geared more to relieving the punter of their cash, than they are to curing problems.
They are *extremely* good at producing wonderful reams of statistics to show how 'good' they are - and will always blame the registry for any ensuing problems which result from the use of the 'cleaner'.

There are many programs - including Windows and Office - which deliberately have entries which go 'nowhere' in order to properly service potential upgrades or later installs. Removing those entries can break the later install/upgrade/update.
There is no program in the world that can cope with the options available to the user in the registry - but Windows itself does a pretty good job as a rule, and is best left alone to do it. Throwing a spanner in the works in the form of a (out-of-date) registry 'cleaner' can only make things worse, rather than better.
I have seen people run registry cleaners for a while, and complain that their system is getting slower despite regular 'cleaning'. As soon as they stopped messing with the registry the system started picking up again, and problems became soluble, rather than ever-present
ASC went through a phase of removing two critical services from Windows 7 - and one from Vista, because it had the bad habit of removing stuff it didn't understand, rather than taking the safe option of only removing stuff it thought it knew was bad.

The ONLY safe registry cleaner is the MkI eyeball, and a boatload of knowledge of the system in use.

That is very interesting. I also didn't notice any difference after running ASC, even though it said that it cleaned up a bunch of stuff.
The ASC I was using was the most current one (not an outdated one).
But I have removed it from my system and am no longer using it.
I will see how things go without it.
I had only invoked it when I wanted (I didn't have it automatically loading).

The last statement you made: The ONLY safe registry cleaner is the MkI eyeball, and a boatload of knowledge of the system in use.

Can you clarify what you mean by "and a boatload of knowledge of the system in use?"
And what is MkI eyeball?
I've never heard of that as a registry cleaner.
Do you have a link for it?
Thanks.
