A Little background:EMET is Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enhanced_Mitigation_Experience_Toolkit

 

My favorite part is

There are a few limitations to the new EMET bypasses. First, FireEye researchers so far have observed them working only on Windows 7 and not on Windows 10, which is widely regarded as more resistant to exploits.

Because it's a big reason to upgrade while it's free.

 

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.
