Registry/shortcut errors etc.

When I had Norton ( which I got rid of a month or so ago) I used to use part of the Systemworks that checked for Windows errors, shortcut errors etc. Is there a single programme that has the same facility as Norton had. It's the only thing I miss.!!!
I have registry cleaner, but always a bit wary of that.
Thanks.

Had a look at your link, but got a red McAfee warning on it so closed it. Is it safe?
Thanks.

I just opened ambra4's link to test - I got no warnings of any kind. It is safe!

Just looked again and read the warning which says ' Overall concern with shoppers at this site'.
No further details.
So not anything malicious.
Thanks. Will revisit and browse.

Don’t trust McAfee and Norton AntiVirus software so I do not use them

As seen to many problems with these installed on company network system

I use Symantec Antivirus and do not use IE only Firefox.

In the days before Firefox 95% of all virus was installed via IE, Mcafee and norton do not pick up most malware or spyware virus or give you some weird warning on sites that is very safe and no warning on site that would load a virus
