I downloaded a program called cccleaner. I ran this and one of the options was to delete some programs that were installed on my computer. Many programs were the windows updates that I had downloaded from Microsoft. Can I delete these or should I just leave these alone. Also one more question. When I exit out of a program using the "x" in the upper right hand corner, I get a "Not Responding" message. Any thoughts on what could be doing this.

Thank you

hi steinmetz,

i would leave any windows updates alone, they may be security updates to keep your computer protected. besides, windows update will try to download and install them again!

try using 'system restore' to a point before the 'not responding' messages began to occur,

good luck

A serious word of warning about using an application to clean up your hard drive, such as ?CCleaner; unless you are very careful to review each and every entry candidated for cleaning, often times these applications can delete files needed by a program you have installed, and cause them not to work properly.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

The Not Responding error means that the program can't respond to you at that time. There are various reasons for this - the most common being that it's busy doing something else (for example, trying to close CCleaner while it's cleaning your drives).

Often the solution is to wait a bit and try again. If it still doesn't respond, then further troubleshooting of the particular program is called for.
