ASC -- First run


JohnathanStein

Recommended Posts

I'm a new user of ASC, and am concerned about the number of registry "errors" it has found & wants to fix.

 

The first run of "Deep Registry Fix" with "Enable Deep Clean" found 5,239 items. When disabled, it found 995 items.

 

More than half have "High" potential Damage Level, so I am concerned about letting it do its thing.

 

Please advise,

>>Do Not remove Anything that is 'High risk', Unless you Know that it Needs to be deleted!

 

So everything else is OK to delete?

 

Yes, if it says 'Low risk'.

 

>>Even then you need to do a Registry Back-up First.

 

Is there a way to just back-up the stuff it wants to delete?

 

No, you need to have back-ups of Complete Registry.

You can use the 'Rescue-center' that is in ASC.

(see Rescue button at top of main ASC window)

I like to have another Back-up, using another utility, Also,

just to be safe.

These backups use very little space on hard-drive, if that is what you are worried about.

 

(Windows-7 has Registry Back-up built-in (system backup) but with older OS you may need to download one)

 

I do a Registry back-up Before knowingly making Any changes to the Registry,

because you never know when you may have a Power-Glitch or something,

that can cause a Loss, while it is being changed.

This is the procedure I use in W-7, to make back-ups:

(fast and easy, as long as you are logged-in as Admin)

 

See link:

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Back-up-the-registry

 

You can even Save the Back-up to an External-drive or Flash-drive, that way, which may 'Come in Handy'. ;-)

 

BTW - use 'Import' to Restore the Registry, like you use 'Export' to Save it

( I just noticed that website page did Not say anything about Restoring it )

(Also, be sure to close all running programs before doing an 'Import' restore)
