Hi folks,


I have ASUS laptop with upgraded windows 10 (from windows 8 since the laptop came with it).


I have been using System Explorer Portable for many years and always run it to execute it's "Security Check" then we I get it is NO Threat I closed it out even from Tray.


This morning I ran CCleaner Portable 5.44.6575, and made the mistake of running Registry Cleaner ... which I never do ... but I did back up my registry per CCleaner suggestion.


Now, I am guessing my problem might have started after I ran the Registry Cleaner ... but Not sure.


Problem that I am talking about is that System Explorer Portable and Installed Version 7.0 STOPS in it's gear and does NOT complete it's run.


Q1: Is this only my problem OR System Explorer has stopped providing the service?


BTW, I am running AVAST Free AV  ... and if Avast hadn't Suggested that I have Registry problem I would NOT have run the CCleaner Registry clean up.  I really dispise AVAST sales pitch.  I just recently in the past several months changed from AVIRA Free to Avast only because AVIRA would not Start and load up in my Tray ... so I tried Avast.


Q2: Did I clubber something in my system?


Q3: Is there a Fix to get System Explorer "Security Check" to work again?  Everything else in System Explorer seems to work just fine.




G! :)

Hi, gonwk!

This is only your problem, as I believe System Explorer still provides its service.

By running the CCleaner Registry Cleaner, you inadvertently removed both the portable and the installed System Explorer's "Security Check" function.

The only fix to get the said function to work again, is to reverse/restore the changes being made with the CCleaner Registry Cleaner.

Here is a guide on how to do it:


If you have not as of yet, please read this article:

Good luck! :)

I just checked the System Explorer installation program, and unfortunately it has no repair functionality.


You could try to reinstall System Explorer, but I can't predict what the outcome of that will be. Usually, this fixes the installation, but there is no guarantee.
