My AV is MS Security Essentials + Spybot - Search & Destroy 2 (this one not properly an AV)
Once a week I run IOBit Advanced SystemCare 8 Pro. It has a Registry Cleaner.
Later this evening (during your night) I will run your "magic" FIX in the other PC.
I will report final state to you and will mark this thread as solved with many thanks if everithing works as expected.

ALL IOBit software in my view is classed as DANGEROUS - and should be uninstalled immediately.
If you paid for it, demand a refund.

I wish you well gaita but many people have found out that just uninstalling any IObit programs don't solve all the problems. When you uninstall IObits it doesn't repair the damage it has already caused. IObit moves things, changes things and deletes things. Nobody I know of knows exactly what it does or if it does the same damage on every computer.

Many have to do a Clean Install to get their computer back to normal again.

You may be the lucky one, where just removing IObit solves your problems.

The reason I bring this up is because I have seen members spend weeks trying to fix a IObit computer and just end up doing a Clean Install.
When you have uninstalled IObits and Noel is done with his magic, if it's not fixed just do a Clean Install and save yourself weeks of headaches.

Dear Lion Bear,
Many thanks to you too.
Your advice is very sound and helpful.
I will have it in mind in the following hours/days and if the things didn't look OK I will proceed as you suggested.
APPARENTLY the only harm done was the one I reported.
Thanks again
Best

I've just had an update - apparently these errors are at least partly 'by design'!
It's a flag that MS failed to put in the installer on the two files, to mark them as 'variables' - they get updated occasionally - so they can in fact be left alone.
MS say they will update the logic in a later patch.

If you get the same errors again, you can ignore them unless you also see other symptoms.

Thanks again, Noel.
I believe that the issue started with a regular Windows Update maybe combined with my weekend IoBit run.
Anyway, I get rid of IoBit software, just to be on the safe side of the line.
Best regards,
Jorge

Another thing I recommend because you have use IObit is changing all passwords.
Their is a chance that IObit gathered them up and called home to Mother China and now they have your passwords.
