I've been having a few small problems with my windows xp,nothing too bad but my machine keeps locking up every now and then.I run all the usual spyware stuff +mcafee internet security and virus scan( all Clean) .I downloaded and ran easycleaner and it has found 85 invalid references im a bit dubious to delete these and was wondering if anyone has used easycleaner and how safe is it?Heres a sample of what it found any help would be appreciated thanks.

If you are not sure if easycleaner is safe why run it,you might want to read the USER info on the product first to see if its going to do what you want it to do,at the same time if these programs are designed to detect items on your PC that are NOT wanted or used it would be a fair asumption that you can safely delete what it detects...

Santos i understand the logic in your answer,i was just asking if members of this forum have used easycleaner and whether they have any had positive or negative reports on said programme.i'm a bit worried as 85 faults seem alot thanks for your reply

Best to be safe than sorry, if its the first time you have run it, i wouldn't worry to much about the amount of entrys,if they are invalid and you have no other way of detection and deletion you will be surprised how many you can mount up considering some of the entries are dated 12/12/2004.....

I've used an older version of Easycleaner on W98 for a couple of years and never had a problem, you can set it up to make a backup of any deleted registry items and also delete any other junk to the recycle bin, I usually leave logs, temp files etc that Easycleaner finds in the recycle bin for a few day before deleting permenantely. I think it is a good prog. and well worth using...alB

I have used Easycleaner for the last 4 or 5 years and it has never let me down yet.
The newer version seems just as reliable as the old one so far.
