CCleaner keeps pointing to a registry error ... see below:

 

ActiveX/COM Issue InProcServer32\%SystemRoot%\SysWow64\boefwm.dll HKCR\CLSID\{3E6766FF-6CB0-CA70-7997-0B8905B5CBF4}

 

To be frank (but please don't call me Frank), I'm like a 'babe in the woods' with the Registry these days.  Is this a "legitimate error" from CCleaner, or should I just ignore it.

Hi and :welcome: to BC
Usage of registry fixing or cleanup tools are not appreciated by our community, neither Microsoft due to the bad effects of registry cleaning. There is no much issue, even if the registry keys leftover is present in the system.
Hope it helps. :)

                                                                                                                                       Be alert and vigilant....!

Really?!  I see discussions on all sorts of utilities.  Even recommendations.  For example why is JRT acceptable to discuss and even promote, and my 'other' cleaner can't be.  This kind of shocks me.  BTW, I just updated my 'other cleaner' and this situation no longer exists.  Sorry Microsoft.

For what it's worth: Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners (and neither does Microsoft).

Junkware Removal Tool is a specialized malware removal tool, and thus cannot be compared to registry cleaners.

Much thanks to quietman7 and Alexstrasza for setting me straight.  The fact is, I do 'clean' my registry too often.  I also used an Emisoft product.  [wink to Alexstrasza]  It's a habit from the old days when the registry used to get bloated and caused problems.  I do use Revo Uninstaller Pro and it seems to do a great job.  I'll use that, and leave well enough alone. 

Thanks again - RVAH-12.
