Yes it does seem like yesterday. Time goes faster the older you get.
I am a little unsure of the jv16 PowerTools 2009 compared to the RegCleaner 4.3 I have on my notebooks. I use it by selecting Tools-Registry Cleaner-Do them all and let it do it's thing. I do not remember why, but it is set to automatic and just make one backup copy. It may be on automatic due to the enlarged font, for my old eyes, making it hard to see all of the window after cleaning to make a selection, but then it has been more than a few years.
My question is, when I ran RegCleaner 4.3 the way I have described it, did it fix the findings, or delete them. or it "know" which to fix and which to delete? Or do you need more information to tell?
It seems when I run jv16 most of what shows up looks to be the same as the last scan prior to rebooting or restarting the computer. The handbook in the selection for fix or delete did not give me a clear understanding of when you used one over the other. RegCleaner 4.3 "just worked", never did anything that caused me a problem, maybe I was just lucky, I do not know. With your more detailed and feature rich jv16 program, I am not so sure. I guess sometimes simpler is better.
Could you please give me instructions on how to use jv16 so it does like 4.3 used to do?
I started another thread where I was asking for explicit help in getting jv16 into exclusions for the on access protection for Avast 4.8 anti-virus program. I got a number of views but no replies. In the Avast program there are several on access protection providers, but I did not see where/how to add avast to any of them, or which one I needed to get it into. Under general settings there is an exclusion tab, but it explicitly states it is for everything except the on access providers. Can you shed any light on this? Is there a better category to put a thread like this? The forum seems to get either a lot of views and replies, or the thread gets none or next to none, many going unresolved. Not a complaint, just a noob observation. I realize that once you give someone the answer that fixes their issue, you cannot force them to be courteous and do one more post to inform everybody that you solved their issue and they are nominating you for Sainthood, or what they found to resolve their issue.
Thanks in advance, Chris.
