both quick scan and deep scan throw up important reg entries these need to be de selected before clicking repair.


they are easy to spot as they are from the "Q PARTITION"


The new free edition of ms office [word and excel] installs in its own partition call "Q" do not know why but its confusing a lot of reg cleaners including ASC5.

How does Click-to-Run work?


Products delivered via Click-to-Run execute in a virtual application environment on the local Operating System. This means that they have private copies of their files and settings, and that any changes they make are captured in the virtual environment. The effect is they don’t end up modifying any other software installed on the System. With few exceptions, only user data actually passes through the virtual environment to the local System. Click-to-Run users may notice that they have a virtual Q: drive on their PCs, this is the virtual file system used by Office.


All the best, woz of oz
