I'm a new user of CCleaner. I searched the forums for my problem but to no avail. Here's my problem: I ran a reg issues fix including all but a few minor file associations, and everything seemed to be working fine. However, I attempted to run the windows add/remove module and it either doesn't load (i.e. shows the window and captions, but says 'please wait list is being populated') or takes a very long time to load (10 minutes). This happened immediately after CCleaner cleaned up.
I backed up the registry prior to cleanup using the option CCleaner gave me, but when I added the reg values back to my reg, nothing happened. I looked in other forums and on microsoft for a fix but I keep spinning my wheels. I realize that there are other uninstallers out there, but I'm looking to restore the windows one.
Facts: winxp service pack 2, system restore not on , norton antivirus, spybot, adaware
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
