About Viruses and other hazardous things

Recommended Posts

Can you add some more abilities about hazardous programs such as viruses, malwares and other ones to registry cleaner? I mean; can you add a database about these harmful things to registry cleaner? By this way, some of these programs that add itself to registry can be deactivated by this way.

 

I don't have enough information about these harmful programs that add itself to registry, but by this way it should be better.

 

Thanks for your efforts...

You need anti-malware software which CCleaner is not, it's a system cleaner!

 

For recommended anti-malware practices and software read this post.

Hi, Kammikazze. :D

By the way, most of the stuff in that link from Andavari is free.

I can attest that those apps have worked well for me for years. Windows XP home sp3 here.

Since the A.V. threat is changing every minute,

and better Anti-A.V. products have new virus signatures on an hourly basis,

CC would be more than a little out of date after a month before the next release.

 

If you really want to preserve your registry from malware you could use ERUNT.

It can automatically create a fresh registry backup at the start of the day,

and at the end of the day you can restore the registry from a backup to eliminate "today's" malware effects,

and give you a clean start for tomorrow.

You will of course also damage any new applications you have installed, so on those days you may want to risk malware.

 

I use ERUNT - BUT NOT FOR THE ABOVE PURPOSE.

 

I am in full agreement with the previous responses

You need proper A.V. protection, which will protect much more than just the registry.

Firewalls and "Behaviour blockers" are also essential.
