Don?t remove entry of Registry

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have installed the version of ccleaner v2.18.878.

when I run the registry cleaner I always find the following entry that I am not able to delete:

Invalid file extension (80b8c23c-16e0-4cd8-bbc3-cecec9a78b79) HKCR \ (80b8c23c-16e0-4cd8-bbc3-cecec9a78b79)

 

And in the Resgistry equals:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT \ (80b8c23c-16e0-4cd8-bbc3-cecec9a78b79)

 

Does anyone know why and how to remove it?

 

Thank you

I had exactly the same problem with the same registry entry. No amount of running the Registry cleaning part of CCleaner would remove this entry. I also couldn't manually delete it via the Registry either as I was getting a security warning.

 

I then thought about what programs I had installed recently - the main one was Avira AntiVir Personal and specifically I had chosen an option (or at least I think I chose the option) under Configuration - (tick Expert Mode option) - General - Security to "Protect files and registry entries from manipulation". I unchecked that option and was then able to delete this registry entry and it has stayed deleted, even after I retick that security option.

 

As the registry entry is no longer there (I did a search through the Registry after re-enabling that security option, saving the configuration and restarting the computer) I don't know if that security option is really enabled any more but it has at least sorted out the entry that CCleaner kept finding and then failing to delete.

I used to always exclude that registry key when I used AntiVir, rather the key was actually needed or not I just didn't like the ideal of messing with the installed antivirus.

Thanks friend, the problem is already solved. Indeed this was the solution.

You're a genius.

Thanks again

Thanks. I had the same problem, and your solution worked like a charm. I joined this forum just to say "thanks". :D

Hi. Old thread, but same issue.

 

I too kept having this show up and unable to delete/clean with CCleaner. But just found info (another forum) that claims it is part of Avira Anti-virus - which I have. So, I'll not worry about it...until I am shown it is NOT a Avira file extention. Any further insight welcomed.
