First.. thank you and my apologies if this is not the right section for posting this..  I have not done anything more than a scan using the "Scan for Issues" option..  I am aware of the danders of messing with the registry.  I have done a full backup using "regedit" (although i have read in some forums people have had nightmares trying to import after using this).  I just want to know if i can have CCleaner "fix" these or if I should leave it alone.  I really appreciate your time.  Thanks.

Bleeping Computer does NOT support the use of registry cleaners.  If you use a registry cleaner or optimizer then you'd better be able to vet every single thing it does and approve it.  That's what it comes down to.  If you don't know enough about the registry to do that then I'd suggest you leave it alone.

Just for the record, you might read the following:

 

Microsoft support policy for the use of registry cleaning utilities - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2563254

 

Registry cleaner - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Registry_cleaner

 

Registry Cleaner FAQ, PC Support - http://pcsupport.about.com/od/registry-cleaner/a/registry-cleaner-faq.htm

 

Registry Cleaner, Animal - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/526247/tune-up-utilities-2014-problem/?p=3303494

 

While most think that Ccleaner is a fine tool for duplicating features that are already in Windows (e.g., dumping the cache, emptying Recycle Bin, etc)...it's "registry cleaner" function falls into the same groping in the dark that more elaborate "registry cleaners" do.  Computer users don't need that.
