Try it and see. Or go to the relevant website and see what it says.

I have been to the site and it does not mention Windows 7 Just Windows XP and previous Windows OP'S that's why I was asking the question to see if anyone had downloaded it onto Windows 7 64bit and had come across a conflict, as they say forewarned is forearmed

forewarned is forearmed

And very wise advice that is!

In your case, I would backup my installation and then try it. You will probably have to install and run it in XP compatability mode. If it does go wrong then you can restore your backup.

It's a programme I have never heard about so I'm afraid I can't be of any greater help.

I wouldn't touch it with a bargepole. It's very old and was last updated in 2007. Just looking at the website would put me off. I'd advise NOT to use it and try CCleaner instead, which has a very good reputation and does the same thing.

Thanks for the advice I have downloaded CCleaner and it is as you say very similar so I will use that many thanks once again
