  1. Hi I used wise registry cleaner, portable edition 9.11.585, as useal on my windows server 2012 and now it crashed my files associations I can not launche the Control panel, the administration tools, etc.. everytime it says that "there is no program files associated..." How can I solve this issue ? B.R. Thierry
  2. I started originally in programming Apple II, Lanier NoProblem, & Tandy. I have been a network admin since 1986 on NetWare, Windows NT, Windows 2000 & Windows 2003. I install networks & workstations & am responsible for all program & updates from DOS 3.2-Windows 3-Windows 98A, Windows XP thru Windows 10. I am intimately familiar with the Windows registry on all Microsoft products. Programs that boast registry cleaning flood the Internet. Generally, I use Symantec/Norton products to limit unnecessary entries in the registry. Occasionally I use third-party utilities to find hidden keys in binary etc. A strong word of caution is if you are not familiar with registries, stay away from registry cleaners. It's okay to defrag or compress it but not to delete entries. I eval this utility by running on a virgin Windows 10 Professional system that I had only installed Windows Updates and perused the Internet with IE & Edge. When I ran WRC, it returned over 1000 problems. Now it was okay to identify IE & Edge temporary files but it also wanted to delete or modify other important entries. All ActiveX/COM/BHOs are not bad, although some may be & they are regularly ill referenced everywhere you look. If you know how to use MMC &/or browser add-ins management, you don't necessarily need a third-party util. The firewall can be managed from Control Panel, MMC or Admin Tools. If you don't like Control Panel, Windows Services can be managed from MMC &/or Admin Tools under All Programs. The point here is: Know your OS well enough to utilize embedded controls rather than auto-repair. You will almost assuredly disable important functions & disable your system functionality if you go blindly changing things. This program disabled us from uninstalling applications. Applications attach themselves to "file types." If the file type is deleted, does it recreate the file type? Who knows but the programmer ! I could go item by item, but I think I've made my point. So, how do you protect yourself you ask. First, make a backup of your registry from within the registry, second, create a Restore Point from within Computer Management, third, make another registry backup from within WRC. It also includes a "Restore Registry" function. Start slow. Change only one category, reboot, test your browsers & any important/useful apps. Beware of binary keys ! Change only categories you recognize the format. Always reboot after ANY registry changes. I am not condemning the software. I think a lot of Wise apps, but I know what I am doing as well as the risks. I wish you the best of luck & hope you will find their utilities as useful as I have, & will purchase their suite for what it's worth to you. David
  3. Greetings, the Wise Care 365 3.9.5 uninstaller leaves at least these registry keys: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\WShredFile HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\WShredFile HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\*\shell\WShredFile HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Folder\shell\WShredFile because of this, if you right-click on a file in the desktop, you still can read the "destroy file/folder" option (please note that I translated "destroy file/folder" from italian), even if the program is uninstalled. My operating system is Windows XP service pack 3 italian. I tried the "Giveaway of the Day" 3.9.5 version. I tried to make the application portable before uninstalling. A reboot did not help. Regards.

    BUG

    Hi! Can I clear Word MRU list with WC 365? Maybe there is possibility to add some registry keys to clear?
  6. Hello, I'm a huge fan of the freeware for Reg/Disk cleaner and use it often. My primary machine is a Windows 7 (64bit, UAC disabled, always elevated privileges). My secondary machine is a Windows XP (32bit, always elevated privileges). But this is regarding an issue I had after using RegCleaner on a friend's laptop and how I solved it. This information may be useful to the developers. It's not fully intended for other users to use as a solid solution to any given problem. I believe my problem may have been purely circumstantial and rare. DISCLAIMER: I don't claim that it will work 100% or for all situations. Please consult with a technician for precise support and advice. If you proceed to try, try at your own risk as I assume no responsibility. Disclaimer #2: ...I have next to zero knowledge about Windows 8. Version: 7.82.512 Settings: Deep scan, no back (never caused problems before) Friend's Laptop: Pre-configured/Pre-installed, Easyhome, Gateway, Windows 8 (64bit) Problem: However, I used a portable version on my friend's laptop (Windows 8, 64bit, always elevated privileges). The regular scan went fine. I even looked at the "Unsafe" registry pointers and felt they were safe enough to add to the wiping process. They pointed to games no longer installed. I then did a scan for the Registry Defrag process and it took only less than 2 seconds to scan. The percentage said it could defrag up to 92%!!! I hadn't cleaned his registry in a long time (using older versions) so I thought this was just accumulated over time from installing/uninstalling software/games. I proceeded to reboot the machine and it caused a fatal error where it wouldn't load Windows. Instead of showing his user account to sign in, it just said "Something went wrong: critical_process_died" Symptom: The laptop began an endless cycle of rebooting and terminating prior to the log in screen with the same fatal error message. "Something went wrong: critical_process_died" Unable to boot into "safe mode" Unable to boot into "Debugging mode" Unable to boot into "Logging mode" Windows Restore unavailble Windows Explorer could not be opened NOTE: This boot menu may be different for other users! This is a pre-configured laptop!!! Positives? Command Prompt was available No files were actually altered/removed Solution: "RegBack" I took his laptop to my home (he has no internet) and googled for similar issues, starting with "registry disappeared". I found a great deal of talk about "Regback" so I googled that next and found several recommendations that repeated multiple times. I was able to change the boot options to allow me to enter the Repair/Diagnostic function. From there I accessed the "Command Prompt" which allowed me to see that all the files were indeed still there, just that I couldn't run any program. Since no files were deleted or anything else altered, I figured that the registry had been completely (or nearly all of it) had been wiped. I was able to open "regedit" from the CMD in the diagnostic mode. Sure enough, the "Software" folder for several of the main entries were missing! This lead me to believe that RegCleaner misinterpreted the size it could actually defrag somehow and wiped a lot of vital information. Including system registry entries that allowed programs to be executed, windows explorer to be opened and even for Windows OS to boot and "Safe Mode" to not boot at all. So I went back to the google search results and read over the details of other people's problems and how successful they were. Some reported to use "Windows Restore" but that was not available. CMD was available so I looked over the "RegBack" option several times before trying it out. It was completely successful! Upon reboot, I was shown the screen to sign into his laptop and access the desktop. Windows explorer opens, software executes properly. Everything was 100% operational again. Solution Details: Disclaimer #3: I don't claim that it will work 100% or for all situations. Please consult with a technician for precise support and advice. If you proceed to try, try at your own risk as I assume no responsibility. Although the solution was for Windows 7, it proceeded to work on Windows 8. If you were to google about Windows 7/8 and "regback" together, you'll stumble upon the same recommendations. Website (Microsoft website) with details on semi-related issues with RegBack solution. "Computer will start, but it doesn't load Windows 7... and it keeps restarting." The RegBack process: (Spoilered for size) Summary: I have no idea if this has happened to any Win8 users before or if it's just something from this version. I've cleaned and defragged with Deep Scan/No Backup before and had no issues. After having restored the backed up registry from Windows\System32\config, I did changed the settings in WRC. New Settings: "Show Safe Only" "Create backup before cleaning" The cleaning process goes without a hitch. However, the scanning for defrag still shows a 92% reduction size. Here's a screenshot of what WRC shows it can reduce... I'm not going to defrag it, in fear of having to do the RegBack process all over again. I'm going to do several virus/malware scans to see if there's an infection of any kind. Questions: Is there any way to confirm if this is a bug in the most recent version? (7.82.51) Would a virus/malware infection lead to WRC to wiping out an extremely large portion of the system registry? Is there anything else I can provide to further help with the understanding of the problem? I wouldn't know where exactly to look for pertinent logs that would better indicate the source. Thank you for your time and wonderful programs. I hope this serves useful.
  7. Please do not doubt the performance of Wise Registry Cleaner, let me tell you why. The scanning speed of Wise Registry Cleaner depends on the size of your registry, the more registry your PC has, the slower the scanning speed will be. About the fast cleaning speed, for example, there are altogether 10000 registry items, so Wise Registry Cleaner will scan 10000 registry, so the scanning speed is slow, while it only needs to delete 40 items, thus the cleaning speed is fast. Just rest assured to use Wise Registry Cleaner my dear users. Have a wonderful day!
  8. When I run the cleaner it tells me that 32 issues have been found, 0 issues solved. Failed to remove 2 issues. Dear developers,can you help me out?.
