Have just downloaded a free 30-day trial of the System Mechanics diagnostic. Here is the result:

Am a bit nervous about proceeding with the suggestd fixes. Have done all the good security stuff recommended by the Bleeping folks ..including disabling of active-x w/out a specific "go" from me.. . so am surprised at results of the initial scan; for example, the "18 repairable security vulnerabilities".

How does one decide what to go for, versus not, when it comes to System Mech? Could I goof myself up big time if I say 'yes' to all suggested repairs?

Any time you make changes to the registry, you run the risk of doing irreparable damage to it.
Personally, I feel registry programs are not needed, unless you are having a specific problem with the registry.
There's too much of a chance, of hosing your system.

As always, the standard warning:

These are registry edits.
Improper changes to the registry could render your computer inoperable.
Remember to backup the registry, before making any changes.
Instructions, on how to do that, can be found here:
