  1. I'm having a problem restoring my registry after backing it up. I'm running windows xp and followed the instructions listed in this thread, but it didn't work. When the backup file was saved I didn't rename it, but went I looked up the file it did show it as a registry type file. When I right clicked on it and clicked merge I got the standard little windows message asking which of the programs I want to use to open it and it lists a bunch of different programs.

     

    I next renamed the file and added the ".reg", but it did the same thing so I'm still unable to restore my registry.

     

    The reason I need to restore the registry is because it has messed up my email protection.

     

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  2. I have always removed all the entries that CCleaner finds and never once had a problem. Plus, you can make a backup of them. If you want to be safe, yes only remove the entries to programs you have uninstalled. Unchecking them will cause them to not be removed by CCleaner.


  3. Yes, I can confirm this.

     

    Renaming the registry backup will cause it not to save as a .reg file.

     

    Saving the registry backup as <filename>.reg will save it as a registry backup.

     

    I'll report it to man himself...


  4. More or less...

     

    The Applications Tab will clean Firefox, Opera, and Safari browser cache. As far as applications, in very simple terms... It clears the recently opened files either by registry or a history file. If you use Office a lot, I would uncheck it, it has been known to reset your personal settings.


  5. It doesn't show anything on my desktop about any time limit.

     

    SP3 contains all Hotifxes for XP (includes IE6/IE7 updates, but does not contain IE7)

     

    Networking:

    "Black Hole" Router Detection

    Network Access Point (NAP)

     

    Functionality:

    Descriptive Security Options User Inface

    Enhanced Security for Administrator and Service policy entries

    Microsoft Kernel Mode Cryptographic Module

     

    Setup:

    Windows Product Activation (Affects other Windows programs activation, this is not WGA)

     

    It only contains a few new features, which I doubt most users will use. It should be a small update on Windows Update when it is released, since most people won't need all the updates.
