This just in: yet another inflammatory ill-researched thread started by cat-avatar-person

;) The re-release happened 4 days and roughly 12-20 hours before you posted this thread home-slice SMH

removed tag from thread "we're screwed" is not appropriate for the tagging system as that feature is to aid in searches and thread identification.

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.

Apparently, MS released an update that intended to fix 1 problem, but it killed several programs at once.

But don't worry, they also claim to have just released a fix for it.

As hazel says, all sorted now, but I didn't know that. I don't follow MS's antics so I missed it, and maybe a few others did as well.

What on earth is home-slice SMH? You got me.

2 separate idioms, I left out a comma.

Home-Slice http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=home+slice

SMH http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=SMH

 

(my apologies for the racistly incorrect third definition of the second term, someone should post meddle in that definition)

I wonder if that's why my computer became completely unstable for about a solid 2 week period, and then out of nowhere it stopped crashing.

Very possible.

 

Wouldn't be the 1st time an MS update hosed a machine. :blink:

 

I prefer manually updating so I can test & verify.

I only manually update from the Microsoft Updates site. I was leaning towards it being some MS Update because there was no other reason for the system to become so unstable. Anyways it's fixed now, so hopefully I can get another 1 to 1.5 years out of this old XP system before retiring it to be a lean music player only.

which works fine so long as you remember to go once a month, something I was not so good at pre-AU

Every craptastic "Update Tuesday" I look, then it along with BITS gets set back to Manual in services. I would completely disable it, but MSE needs it for daily updates.
