ActiveX/com issue


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm getting some issues when running CCleaner, which are not clear to me, see below.

ActiveX/COM Issue    LocalServer32\J:\Programs\Adobe Illustrator CC 2018Support Files\Contents\Windows\Illustrator.exe /Automation    HKCR\CLSID\{84A1A957-2984-4515-9DD9-8CF148FA665C}   

Illustrator works fine.

Is it safe to remove the issue?

What does /Automation mean?

Thanks in advance for any help.

g'day @smithy and welcome to the forum.

unless your PC is having issues that no other means have been able to rectify, there should be no reason to be using CC's reg cleaner.

why are you running the reg cleaner?
what is it you are expecting it to achieve?
if it's bothering you, why not right click that entry and add it to the exclude list.

without knowing why the key was put there, who can say with absolute certainty that something somewhere won't be broken by its removal.
that's the problem with reg cleaners, their cause and effects can take ages to become known.

looks like a parameter passed to Illustrator, so researching the Adobe sites would be your best bet on that one.

You're not promoting the usefulness of CCleaner.

that's not my job.

for cleaning your PC of crap files, CC is excellent.
some of it's other functions, like reg cleaning and dup file removal can be straight out dangerous.
use them with due care and a good back regime in place.
