I have had lots of erroneous advice on what is happening when Help and Support for the entire OS is messed up, in other words PC Health data files are not being operned or woring right. RegClean type programs have made things worse, anyone at all know what I am talking about?

Any insight or guesses why PC Health runs so much and can ruin so much in Windows, would be appreciated

The usefulness of cleaning the registry is highly overrated and can be dangerous. In most cases, using a cleaner to remove obsolete, invalid, and erroneous entries does not affect system performance but it can result in "unpredictable results". Unless you have a particular problem that requires a registry edit to correct it, I would suggest you leave the registry alone. Using registry cleaning tools unnecessarily or incorrectly could lead to disastrous effects on your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again. For routine use, the benefits to your computer are negligible while the potential risks are great.

Does you computer still operate?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

At this point in time I would completely reformat and install a fresh copy.
