Hello I have just run ccleaner registry clean for the first time on a computer which is 8 years old. I began by fixing a restore point. I used the back up as suggested whilst running the registry clean up and I now have 3 files relating to this in 'My Documents' How will I recognize that something is amiss and if something goes amiss will I be able to restore by just using my restore point prior to the clean up? I performed this task in fear but all seems well at present Thank you gel
Used CC for years always done the backup but never needed it. If everything is going oK don't worry about it. If something does go wrog,(very unlikly) just openn cc and use the backup to change everything back.
I have used and put Ccleaner on many computers and have never used the backup nor do I know anyone who has ever used the backup. Use the reg. cleaner once a month. Forget the backup you will never need it.
I always take a back up but I too have NEVER needed it. This is a first class tool as far as I am concerned. I keep the last few back ups, and delete the back ups when the computer has run Ok for an hour or two, after the last one. I usually allow up to four or five to accumulate before this deletion.
Thank you all very much for your comments although I had posted the matter resolved. I am also sure that all the comments will most likely be helpful to other forum members since registry clean up is often considered a dangerous area Thank you gel
