Anybody use easycleaner ?

I have just downloaded it and run it, but have not deleted anything yet.

It has picked up 50 unneccesary files, loads of duplicate files, some of which are in my backup folder i assume, and nearly 200 invalid reg entries.

I have never cleaned up before, but it seems a lot of driftwood, dare i delete them. I have set it up to delete to bin in case i have to restore, also i think you can restore from the program.

TIA john

I used one on my old 98SE machine (can't remember the name)and had to restore them as it caused problems, never bothered again...too scared. Though it did restore easy enough. TR

I used it and found that it had disabled the Help and Support files. If this happens to you then for the fix click here
