I was wondering if I could get some advice on ccleaner. I am not sure what regisrty integrity issues I can address. The program seems to make a backup before you make changes but am very leary to make changes untill I halfway understand what I am doing. I have scanned for issues and found many. I have tried a test with just a small scan on the file integrity section in which had found only three things, all were shortcuts that it claimed didnt exist (infact they worked). I "fixed" them and then the shortcuts on my start menu were gone. I tried adding the register back and the shortcuts didnt come back. I am not sure that they should have or not. Anyway I have lots of problems listed like missing shared dlls, unused file extinsions, open with application issues, ActiveX/com issues, invalid default icon, application path issues, installer reference issues, and obsolete software key. What does it all mean? I am nervous to do anything. Can you help. And does this clean the registry? Will it get ride of the things under msconfig/start that i have gotten ride of but are still in the list?
just to throw one more question. I had at one time WS FTP thing and it added a link on the start/find section but the program is goneand the button is still there. What can I do to get rid of it?
Thanks for all the good info on this site.
