Unused file extensions not unused?

Honestly I don't believe the developers are ignoring it, they just are not a vocal bunch

 

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.

can unused file extensions HKCR zapped by Ccleaner be reinstalled?

 

If you kept the .reg file backup CCleaner offers to create during registry cleaning.

 

Also programs that allow you to enable/disable file extensions in them such as image viewers/editors, zip/unzip software, etc., and be re-associated via those programs. Other programs that don't allow this can be re-installed.

I should've mentioned those .reg backups made by CCleaner (if you let it make the backups that is) would normally be stored in your My Documents folder unless you change the path.

 

I much more prefer to save the .reg backups in a dedicated backups folder where I have CCleaner installed (easier for me to find them), example:  C:\Your Installed Path To CCleaner\CCleaner\Backups
