I keep getting this error on my computer. It's very frustrating because whenever I open CCleaner or any similar program, I get the error message "The requested resource is in use".

Hi Samking,


Are you having more than one PC optimization tool? Well, I am not a fond optimization tool user. In fact I don't use any on my PC. Anyway, go back to your issue, I presumed that you are using Windows. Please go to "Start" -> "Accessories" -> "Run". Type "msconfig", "startup" tab and click the "disable all" button. Restart your PC and try if you can now run the CCleaner. There is a big possibility that CCleaner conflicts with other software in your system.

This is a malware infection. Read the pinned posts in The BC Virus Removal Forum and attach your logs, if possible, to your first post.

Now is the time you want to start considering recovering from last nights disk image, or a clean wipe and reinstall.

Or use adwcleaner
