Are these registry issues safe to delete


Recommended Posts

CCleaner found those registry issues:

 

1)ActiveX/COM Issue InProcServer32\%SystemRoot%\System32\eapa3hst.dll

2)ActiveX/COM Issue InProcServer32\C:\Windows\System32\eapahost.dll

3)ActiveX/COM Issue InProcServer32\%SystemRoot%\System32\eapa3hst.dll

4)ActiveX/COM Issue InProcServer32\%SystemRoot%\System32\eapa3hst.dll

 

I don't feel safe to delete them since they are dll files. Any help appreciated.

If the file(s) dont exist, it should be safe to delete the registry entry. Just make a backup when CCleaner prompts you to. If I recall, I searched for this a while back and found that the files are related to the Extensible Authentication Protocol for a wireless network.

And I have the exact four as well. I seem to remember that after a fresh XPHSP3 install these were the only issues found (after I had cleaned up a few obviously bad entries). I shall wipe these now. Well, soon.

That's exactly right. These only came up after updating TO WinXP SP3.

(I think the registry cleaner needs an ignore list, tbh.)

I think so too!!!

 

So long as it was in a simple format without all that Exclude1, Exclude2, etc., stuff so the ignore list could look something like:

HKCU\Software\Some App\Some Settings

HKLM\Software\Some Other App\Some Other Settings
