But it takes a lot longer to complete and takes tons more space. I rarely ever go back to any of my images...I have them just in case nothing else works. The only image that I frequently re-use is first one right after installation and activation.

Excellent news and a wonderful real world experience. Bet you won't ever recommend using a registry cleaner now going forward.

The facts are true, but does it matter? The imaging runs in the background and does not keep me from doing other things. And it takes only 12 minutes for my system and data partitions together. The space costs pennies so it does not matter either. I have been too often fooled by system restore. Sometimes it works, sometimes it does not.

10 - 15 minutes is not really a long time especially when you are almost 100% sure it's going to work. I also have to keep my fingers crossed when using system restore.

Great news! Glad to hear you have your system back to normal.

I learned my lesson really quick after running Auslogics Registry Defrag. It screwed up my themes and system fonts. I will never again run a registry app.

That is good news, Amber; I am glad it worked for you. Now you know why some of us here harp about not using third party registry tools.

CCleaner is not a registry cleaner like the Reg Cleaner popup ads that are a sales operation without anything ingenious to back them up.

CCleaner is a disk cleanup which has a tab that allows you to remove inactive Registry keys (shells) that are no longer doing anything except clogging the registry.

I have watched over 10 years as CCleaner has perfected its app to the point where it simply doesn't make mistakes. Yet it still gets lumped into the probs caused by "Registry Cleaner" scams which exist only to sucker people to spend their money.

People get careless in their accusations. Earlier in this thread someone refers to Auslogics Registry defragger messing up their system as though this is a cleaner. Auslogics Disk and Registry defraggers are the state-of-the-art defraggers which also have no verifiable track record of making these kinds of mistakes in ten years experience having installed and used them on several hundred installs.

I am still waiting for someone to make a verifiable case that CCleaner or Auslogics defraggers caused a problem on their computer. These are genius apps that are the leaders of their pack which simply do not make mistakes in my experience.
