Nope it's not there!

Wait I did a search with Everything desktop search and discovered that there are TWO instances:
C:\ProgramData\MAGIX
C:\Users\Alec\AppData\Roaming\MAGIX

It it safe to simply delete both these directories in Windows Explorer, or will that screw up my registry?

MAGIX is a very different thing to Xara.
NEVER just 'delete' files or folders from the ProgramData or AppData folders - unless you know that they have already been uninstalled using proper methods.

I'm not sure if this is the same place, but I went here:
Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services

I couldn't find anywhere to tick to hide MS services but I managed to export the list which looks like the attached text file.

Registry cleaning was mentioned on page 1, IF one is going to use any registry cleaner/editor, I highly recommend exercising great caution. Get the advice of those who have been using such a long time before venturing into such utilities. I can tell you that from personal experience from my distant past that nonCareful use could lead to one either restoring the backup image or rolling back to the known good SRP/Configuration [via F8] or finding and ReInstalling the OEM or MS OS.

If you need to use a registry cleaner - you almost certainly don't know enough about the registry to do so safely.
If you know enough to edit the registry safely, then you don't need a registry cleaner.


ALL registry cleaners are unsafe - most are VERY unsafe.

Highly competent technicians may use a registry cleaner to winnow out the chaff - but I guarantee that they will manually check every 'bad' entry before deleting it!!

1. Unfortunately I have now already run a registry cleaner (as apparently recommended in another forum - although it now appears that I may have misunderstood)

2. Problem I am now getting Windows Explorer error message that goes into a loop. Worse my antivirus software AVG Cloudcare does not appear to be being loaded.

HELP!

What should I do now?

I have booted into Safe Mode and have fired up AVG and have run scan...

It may not be but neither Amazon nor MS will take any responsibility for it not being genuine so I've given up with them both. I...
