Help Corrupt file not fixing

I am new to CC, I just bought it and I thought it cleaned corruption in the registry.  I keep getting for instance acroRd32.exe is corrupt, I have tried command prompt things but nothing is working and someone said, shouldn't CC find that in the registry?  So here I am asking, if someone could get me in the right direction I would be so appreciative....lost in corrupt world..

Ccleaner doesn't fix corruption, it seeks out registry items that don't seem to be connected to live programs.  Like any registry 'fixer' you shouldn't use it unless you know what you're removing. Read the advice in my signature below.

I've moved this thread to the ccleaner discussion board.

 

 

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.

is it just Acrobat Reader that is corrupted, or others?

if just the one, uninstall and reinstall the software.
if others, it may be a sign of deeper issues (gremlins, hard drive failure) and you should be backing up, scanning your drive, perhaps even a repair reload of Windows.

to get you started, start an elevated command prompt and do these;

chkdsk c: /r
sfc /scannow

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.
