uphclean stands for user profile hive cleanup

The errors that this issue relates to are along the lines of a program or process had open handles to the user hive (part of the registry) and the user hive could not be unloaded during shutdown

The only real impact of this error is that windows does not shut down quickly...instead, window waits for the hive to unload, and then eventually times out, and forces a close.

This issue does not impact all users, but it does seem to be growing significantly

If, when you shutdown, the message SAVING YOUR SETTINGS hangs for more than 10 seconds, then you have this issue. Otherwise, the patch does nothing

I just ran Registry First Aid, and I have like 90 invalid path errors. Most of the "Extreme Caution" ones are Event Message Files--
%system root %...system32...dllcache...igmpv2.dll...oh all kinds of stuff that I know absolutely nothing about.

My system is running, should I just leave well enough alone?

Registry First Aid offers corrections to most of the errors. Most of the errors seem to be event message files with invalid file references. They're not error messages...they're mostly "hkey_local_machine/system..."

The program offers corrections by cutting invalid substrings, changing the path, or deleting the entry.

They also warn you...like you could really screw things up. That's why I'm afraid to run the corrections.

well hers some options to consider

1- you can make a back-uo registry with your
current one thats there now. that way you replace it back
if repairs dont work.

2-you can ignore the warnings and just do the repair .

3-type in search bar eventid an search for possible solutions

This is probably over my head right now...although I might attempt it
soon.

It's nice to know there's some assistance here. Thanks again, see you soon.

hey you guys...now that I have java, I keep picking up viruses! Previously, I think I've found 4 viruses in two years, now all of a sudden, I've found five in two days! What's going on?

They are attacking: ...\Application data\sun\java

and they are: trojan/class loader and java/Byte Verify

Research says they're not really dangerous, but what? Is java like really vulnerable, or something? I found a patch from Microsoft I'm gonna try.

I posted here because you guys are familiar with my problems... if I should, I'll post in malware.
