Programs not starting

Recommended Posts

I ran Ccleanup & now some of my applications are not starting properly. According to the Task Manager they appear to have started and are consuming CPU space but no front end GUI is showing. Suggestions?

Did you only clean or did you use the registry section?

Did you backup the registry entries before removal. If so, you can try to restore it (may not work depending on the entries removed).  I'm assuming you ran it blindly, the best advice for future registry cleaning is in my signature below this post.

Thanks for your assistance thus far.

I did backup my registry but cannot find the file.

Default location is your documents folder

Yes, I also see that on the website. Unfortunately, there is no file, even after switching on the hidden files selection, which shows a backup file that would relate to CCleaner

CCleaner registry backups will have a naming format that starts with CC followed by a bunch of numbers which include date/time and end with the .reg extension. I would by default save into the Documents folder unless you've previously told it to backup elsewhere in the past, then it would use that non-default location.
