Howdy,

I just ran a scan using Microsoft's OneCare Scan program. After the scan the final results came up on this screen.

I was wondering why there are errors in the registry section and why all the temporary files and other files could not be cleaned or compressed.

Could someone please decipher this information for me ?

Thank You for your time !

Dennis :thumbsup:

dennis,
i can't answer your questions, but i can give advice. that programme is a dismal programme. i read something somewhere about it deleting files in outlook express, they "fixed" the problem, and they deleted the files again. it also didn't detect and remove well. stick with the programmes that you know are good and reputable. maybe that programme has potential, but it's not there yet. they need to fix the bugs.

The registry items it found are probably old registry entries left over by programs you have uninstalled.

The temp files that were not removed could be the Microsoft Office installation files. The Onecare scan will not remove these files by default.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
