Hi there
Why on Earth do people use these types of products

If your registry is that "corrupted" or filled with junk -- re-install is the best option.

You never know when the latest and greatest piece of malware will find something in the registry it can use

If CC cleaner worked only 50% of the time would ANYBODY using it know whether the registry had been tidied up OK correctly or not.

I suspect even in the Microsoft development labs the number of people that could take a Registry Dump and say whether it was OK or still had stuff in it from previous software installs not being uninstalled properly could be counted with the fingers on one Hand (and that's probably before 4 of them had been cut off).

Just backup before installing "questionable" software and restore again if it doesn't work or you want to REALLY get the junk out of the registry.

Full system backup with decent backup software shouldn't take more than around 15 - 20 mins on a decent system and you should do a backup anyway.

Just for an example about the Registry

What's this entry for example

{0ce4991b-e6b3-4b16-b23c-5e0d9250e5d9}

Would you know if it's VALID, correct, Incorrect or even what it IS.

Cheers

Ccleaner
Hello I was advised to use the section of Ccleaner labeled, Windows and Applications if you use; temp files, history, cookies, urls, autocomplete, recent docs, run, recycle bin and clipboard. Is this sound advise or should I just perform a disc cleanup?

CCleaner and WMP
I think with the latest version CCleaner added detection of WMP files. Or at least I never saw them before. When I run CCleaner with WMP selected under Applications it finds over 1 million KB of Art Cache .jpg files (sample attached). Can these be safely deleted? I use iTunes as my media...

I regularly use CCleaner, probably around 3 times a week. The thing is, when it cleans out Firefox and Google Chrome, all my saved logins are gone. For example, I never log out of VF, SF or EF. My logins are saved. After using CCleaner, they aren't. Which options do I need to uncheck or check in...

CCleaner
How do I get rid of that stupid security warning when opening CCleaner and Defraggler? I don't want to disable it for all programs, just those two. I can't figure out how to screen cap the window (Prnt Screen doesn't work), but it's the one that's titled "User Account Control".
