windows 10

Recommended Posts

I just installed windows 10 and tried registry cleaning but it keeps coming back with numerous ActiveX/Com not cleaned in registry, I guess this is a problem with windows 10 and C Cleaner compatability because windows 7 after cleaning it always came back no issues.

If Windows 10 recreates these two registry entries:


activeX/COM InProcServer32\C:\Windows\SysWOW64\ConnectedStorageService.ProxyStub.dll HKCR\CLSID\{B2D2142A-9055-4C37-B3FA-EEFDD4C1DC59}


activeX/COM InProcServer32\C:\Windows\System32\ConnectedStorageService.ProxyStub.dll HKCR\CLSID\{B2D2142A-9055-4C37-B3FA-EEFDD4C1DC59}


then CCleaner should flag the entries and not redisplay them in successive runs. This would eliminate confussion and distrust of the program. Answers like the user needs to right click and add them to the exclude list is not acceptable. Users use this program with limited knowledge of registry entries and rely on the program to do what is gennerally percieved as correct and will cause no harm to their system. If each person were to explore and try to determine if an entry is ok or not for each and every entry they will stop using the program. It has no value to them in time spent or knowledge required to determine so.

And that is a big mistake.

It is never 100% guaranteed that cleaning the registry will not have adverse consequences.

That's why there are "Are you sure?" warnings and opportunities to create a backup.


The caveat with any cleaning software, especially ones accessing the registry, is USER BEWARE.

Backup now & backup often.
It's your digital life - protect it with a backup.
Three things are certain; Birth, Death and loss of data. You control the last.

Are you aware of which registry entries if deleted will cause problems? if so does CCleaner flag them to be deleted? if not then the program is working for the average user, if it does flag them then it should not, or take the option away to delete the entries altogether. Users are just following the steps that the program options offer and if delete registry entries is there then they feel they can delete them. You can't put a penney in a fuse panel anymore because people did when they ran out of fuses, if you feel it is so dangerous to delete entries then take the option away it is so simple. remove the option or don't flag the entries that can cause problems.

Ccleaner, as far as anyone here on the user forum knows, looks at if a registry item is properly tied to a thing. Almost 99% of the time I've encountered recreating registry, in my MANY years of using ccleaner, they were actually tied to a security software. Now ask yourself do you want your antivirus to "properly report" the files they represent? No probably not, so a registry cleaner, even one as gentle as ccleaner, should not be able to remove them nor know what they are by available scanning techniques.



My signature say it all in regards to registry.


As far as @buffy2 being agressive and shouting fix your program.

Maybe you are unaware but this is a user forum. Nobody here, except the bug fixers who pop in when a thread bug needs nore info or steps, but nobody involved in forum threads is employed or even known by face of piriform. We're trying to aid you. there is no need for acting foolish whilst we give you advice, especially when it is advice that has been true for windows and ccleaner (as well as and more so other registry cleaner softwares) has been since at least 06


(The fact that there are now three threads in which im having the same conversation better not be trolling. For now I'll chalk it up to be "new operating system growing pains". )





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