Windows advanced care

  hiwatt 17:14 15 Nov 2007

I was just doing my usual weekly computer clean out and I tried windows advanced care for the first time.I use ccleaner,spybot s&d,avg antispyware,spyware terminator,winaso etc.Even though I use all these regulary,windows advanced care found over 300 security risks and over 200 registry entries and other stuff.How can this be when all the rest found nothing?Thanks.

AWC2 has a security database which works in the same way as the immunise in spybot sd and spyware blaster, this database is updted weekly for good protection. click correct for the security risks.

not sure why you have a large reg count if you have just run WINASO what do the reg entries relate to.

I use the same programs as you mention except avg antivirus

I'm not sure what the registry stuff was.I just chose to clean it as I had backed it up before hand.I was quite shocked myself to find so much stuff.I also use spyware blaster and have all the protection enabled so I'm not sure why there was so much security threats.Oh well.Thanks.

AWC3 is due in Nov 08 not sure of the date yet.

I have had any false errors on the reg scan in AWC2 always found it reliable.
