Downloaded Uniblue Clean up now its even worse

  errolfowler 12:31 07 Jan 2010

Hi all,
My hair is all but gone. So now it's time to ask for help!!
I downloaded and paid for Uniblue from this site and it found over 1000 errors which it says it cleaned up. My pc (windows xp) was all messed up before now is even worse and is running like slug. It has taken me nearly 10 minutes to get to this point on this site. I have done all the usual defrag disc clean up etc. I have even removed all my photos to try and help speed thing s up.
Any suggestions
thanks errolfowler

You have created your own Problem, by being taken in by the Program Advert got on my Computer not by me loading, I think it got there from other software and since Removed it. Your only way back is remove it and the do a System Restore to Before it got on your PC

Did you set a 'System Restore' point before you ran Uniblue? Either way, you should do a System Restore from before you installed and/or ran uniblue.

If this is what you are talking about...Uniblue Registry Booster, you can use it for free?

Hi Fruit Bat,
My machine has over 2000 errors according to this, but will only clean 25 of them. Do I need to pay for the rest to be cleaned.
Kind regards

Uninstall UNiblue and run CCleaner (its a free download)

let it remove every thing it asks.

Then click on registry and scan for isuues accept the invitation to backup the registry and then let it fix all issues.

Do a scan for issues again and let it fix all issues again

on a third scan for issues it should find almost noting to fix.

I do not use CCleaner I use and always use CleanUp
click here
Use it on Default Settings

...I too use Ccleaner and believe it to be the safest clean-up tool on the market. It isn't the only cleaner I use but most definately the safest.
