I had no problem down loading and installing XP-3 but it left alot of stuff behind, (found by Ccleaner). The computer seam to be acting correctly. Is it okay to remove this stuff after about 20 hours of use.

I would move all this stuff to a temp folder and leave it there for a couple of weeks. If, after that time you haven't experienced any problems then delete it.

Hello Layback Bear.

I think CCleaner was detecting the "hotfix uninstallers".

Could you uncheck the box for "hotfix uninstallers" and run the analyse again to see if the same amount of stuff is being detected?

With Regards,
The Panda

I just sent the whole thing to my documents. Most of them are KB and a number like this ARPCache\KB9434. There are also a lot HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\SharedDlls] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Management\ARPCache\KB896344]

Hello.

Yup, KB896344 and alike are updates, or in this case the uninstallers for them. See here. They are safe to remove. You many want to keep a backup if you are the safe type (though that kinda defies the point of removing them to free up space :thumbsup: ) .
