Hi

 

:welcome: to the Bleeping Computer forum.

 

We don't recommend the use of any registry cleaning programs as it may cause more trouble than fixing an issue. If anyone know which registry entries are irrelevant, that is only Microsoft and not some third party companies.

 

To remove spywares, you can use the below programs.

 

Malwarebytes free : http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/malwarebytes-anti-malware/

 

Superantispyware free : http://www.superantispyware.com/download.html

 

Microsoft malicious software removal tool : http://www.microsoft.com/security/pc-security/malware-removal.aspx

 

 

Scan  the system periodically using the above tools to make sure the system is free from  stubborn infections.

Supplementing your Anti-Virus Program with Anti-Malware Tools


Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons:

Hello -

Exactly what are you attempting to achieve with these type of programs ?? Since 99% of them are "Snake Oil" (uesless programs), their value is very limited for any use at all.

If you wish to "clean the registry", you may s wrll throw a bucket ot water over the computer.

 

The only "registry cleaner" type of programs that have any use, are to remove one Specific program at a time.

A general "cleaner" has no specific daily use on any computer,

 

To remove Temp File build up in XPs use this (Free) program >
Download ATF Cleaner by Atribune from HEREand save it to your Desktop.
Follow the instructions for the browser you use.
Read the instructions about the cookies. Delete what you do not need.
Double click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
Check the boxes to the left of:
Windows Temp
Current User Temp
All Users Temp
Temporary Internet Files
*Prefetch (Windows XP) only.
Java Cache
The rest are optional - if you want to remove the lot, check "Select All".
Finally click Empty Selected. When you get the "Done Cleaning" message, click OK.

 

 

And for all Later versions (Vista / Windows 7) use this (FreeTemp File Cleaner >
Please download TFC, or Temp File Cleaner by Old Timer
Usage Instructions:

  • Download TFC from the download link above and save the file on your desktop.
  • Close ALL running applications as TFC will terminate them before attempting to clean up the temporary files.
  • Double-click on the TFC icon.
  • When the program opens, click on the Start button.  TFC will terminate the Explorer process and all running applications and then begin the process of cleaning out all of your temp folders.
  • When done, press OK to reboot your computer and finish the cleanup.

Note: Depending on how much data is currently stored in the Temp folders, this process can take quite a while to remove all of the files, so please be patient.
 

 

Thank You -

To carry on with your fresh topic Re "AntiVirus and Antimalware" programs.

 

In the upper class, I would nominate ESET Nod32, or Kaspersky Antivirus, and then back either of these with a Pro Version  of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware -

 

 

Thank You -

My personal choice is ESET NOD32 Anti-Virus if choosing a paid for program as it leaves a small footprint...meaning it is not intrusive and does not utilize a lot of system resources. Kaspersky Anti-Virus is also a good choice if looking for a paid for program.
