Hi, I have been following the instructions that so graciously supplied so a noob like me could follow.
I was a somewhat concerned b/c I seemed to need Restore Point enabled and I don't in order that I use the Back Up that this proggy has, I neglected to document the name of it.
However, after reading reviews on it I decided to try it out anyway.
The results were mind boggling.
Clean Up disk identified:
1. Back up files 14... 9.18 mb
2. IE cache 564 files...18.62 mb
3. Log files 3 files....6.73 mb
4. Recycle Bin 6 files....00 mb
5. Secured Lost Cluster 2 files...00 mb
6. Temp files 30.. 143.94 mb
7. Temp help files 5....68 mb
8. Zero Byte files 12....69 mb
i cleaned them up and found in the Reg clean up:
1. Activex/COM 363 prob
2. File Types 53 prob
3. History Lists 453 prob
4. Shared files 9 prob
I corrected them all.
I use Advanced System Optimizer which I bought and thought it was dealing with all of the problems or potential problems.
I really hope that I have not caused problems as there definitely is no backup for me after I did these cleanings as I don't use system restore b/c nasties can hide there.
I did all my scans before, my norton a/v, spybot, trojan hunter and the McAffee Stand alone Stinger and nothing showed up.
As I mentioned i have a high speed connection with a modem, smc router and alpha shield as well and have never over the 3 years with this notebook had any infection.
Just this huge problem with Nero. Certain saw it referenced as being in the Registry with this Tune Up and I cleaned it up.
I tried to D/L the Link that you earlier posted for Nero to clean the drivers and registry checker (uploaded); that I was unable to d/l earlier b/c it gave the error message the same as before to the effect that the page cannot be displaye..(I can't remember the exact wording...I should as I have seen it so often with Nero and of course in the task bar the error...cannot find server) So nothing has changed there.
I simply am baffled by all of this, I don't have exotic programs on this notebook.
Does this Tune Up only back up if one has System Restore on???
I bought the Advanced System Optimizer last year as it seemed to be rated well, however with your Tune Up I read the details and saw program entries listed that I had deleted months ago, so I believe it to be a better proggy, except my concern about Backup???
I hope that this info gives you something that may help in my dilemma.
I really appreciate your interest and ideas, and would appreciate anymore that you may have.
I have heard no further from my Nero Forum and really wonder what could be blocking me from doing this particular D/L????
As well do you have anymore suggestions that I could try with the program tune up, and just wondered about the 1 Click Maintenance on it? Do you use this program yourself? I phoned on it and they indicated that I could order a cd of it.
I would appreciate your experienced comments and still indeed hope to resolve this Nero problem.
Best Regards with again many thankyous
