Windows 7: new to windows 7 and need help

CCleaner Disk and Reg cleanup tabs, and Auslogics free Disk and Registry defraggers are the only cleanup or tweaking Win7 needs.

If you don't have a restore ponit to reverse a bad Update, then the fix is to uninstall the Update.

As a last resort with severe problems before reinstall: Repair Install

However it can carry corruption forward just as an in-place Upgrade does (that's what it is).

well, I don't think that is a product KEY, it is an ID. It is about useless for anything I think. I could be wrong, I was once before.

On Reg Cleaners. I've broken more things with them than they have fixed. Although I recently installed Reg Mechanic and like it blindly clean 716 errors. So far it appears to still be OK, but I haven't determined the cause of a couple of issues yet.

It is hard to believe that a new computer/OS needs cleaning so soon. I have never found that a system sped up much after a clean. If it was slow it was always something else, like virus or hardware issues.

On the topic of reg cleaner, i wouldn't touch one with a 60 foot pole.

Do more bad then good.

CCleaner or nothing i say!

Just be sure to back up before you do anything with your registry, and don't touch anything you don't know about.
