Registry cleaning does too much

Recommended Posts

I've just installed CCleaner v2.12.660 - In Registry, I did "Scan for Issues", then highlighted some issues, then "Fix selected issues", then "Fix All Selected Issues". But it fixed all the issues, not just the selected ones. Fortunately, I had done a backup and got everything back, but this is a bug.

Hello midiplay, and welcome to the forum.

 

It may only appear that CCleaner fixed all the issues.

 

Did you "Scan for Issues" again, after "Fix all selected issues"?

Nice pick up on the word highlighted Nergal.

 

If thats the case, its another example of the need to read the CCleaner guide before running the program.

You're absolutely right, I hadn't noticed the difference between "highlighted" and "selected". I'm sorry for saying that it was bug. Yes I did do a backup first, and I'll make sure that I always do - as you say "you never know what you'll break if you don't". Thanks for you help.
