Windows 7: control system manager errors

control system manager errors

I seem to have 100s if not thousands of control system errors.
I am not having problems with laptop but am being advised I will in the future if I dont address them. People I have been talking to want to charge $100 or more to remotely fix them.
Can anybody suggest software I can download to address this?
I am just an average user and have limited experience.
I do use CC Cleaner and have used system tools before.

I dont know what to do?

First, you can forget about warning msgs. We all get hundreds of them.

Now, for the moment, forget all of your "control system" errors.

Does your computer system have any problems?

No....not at all....someone warned me that I eventually would have problems...I have had this Sony laptop for 1.5 years and it is working better than ever...except for the fact I have never been able to do a system restore...but that has been from day one...
