Windows 7: Tuneup Utilities 2012 Registry Cleaner crash

29 Apr 2012   #11

Windows 7 Pro with SP1 32bit

Did you manually remove all the references to Tuneup Utilities in the Registry too? One has to be very careful when manually editing the Registry so that no relevant data gets deleted by mistake. To be 100% safe do it only after imaging the System Volume (C) Drive. That shall enable you to restore the image if you make a mistake in editing the Registry.

Windows 7 Professional x64 Service Pack 1

Reinstall Windows and don't ever use a registry cleaner again. Microsoft designed Windows 7 to optimize itself and to run better than previous versions of Windows. Whoever told you that registry cleaners were good clearly doesn't knwo what they're talking about. The only time I ever use a registry cleaner is on Windows XP and that is when I use CCleaner. Even now, I avoid those programs and I try doing Malwarebytes virus scans before even thinking about installing CCleaner or any other optimization utility.
