Stay calm.

What did you delete? See the attached shot of CCleaner.



The Cleaner section only deletes files, not registry entries. The items in this section are fairly safe to delete. Plus the default setting for the registry is to prompt to make a backup of items being deleted. So if you backed up the registry items before deleting, all you have to do to restore them is browse to where you saved the .reg file, double-click it and allow it to be merged back into the registry.

What did you try to restore?

Alright, what I deleted is everything you showed me in that picture. It was on accesident I didn't mean to.

I don't think I backed up the files...um..I was trying to do a system restore and everytime I try to do it. What it says is that it failed.

As I stated, the files CCleaner finds and deletes from the Cleaner section are 99% okay to delete.

After rebooting the computer, do you still have the same issue? If so, I'm tapped.

Hopefully, someone else will see this thread and pick it up for you.

As for the System Restore, that is a problem. Look at this link for instructions for clearing restore points and setting a new one. Once you do this, set a new restore point, then immediately try to restore to that point.

Everything that is checked is what was deleted. I think at least SOME important files to me were deleted...This sucks, I can't even restore my computer for some reason.

A System Restore would not have restored the files deleted by CCleaner. See this link for a good explanation of what System Restore will and will not restore.

Follow the instructions in the link I provided in Post #36 to reset your System Restore function. Be sure to test is as I suggested to ensure it starts working.

I'm curious... which category of files that CCleaner deleted do you consider important? Do you regularly backup your data and files, using Windows NT Backup (which is a part of Windows) or some other backup software?

No


Any file types not monitored by System Restore like personal data files e.g. .doc, .jpg, .txt etc.

I think this. What exactly did it delete? Because I'm not sure. Can you give an explaintion on that?

Is it normal for it not to restore? I'll try and do it.

I'm not sure. I don't think I use any backup software, nor do I intentially set up backup files.

Maybe it's not working because I'm low on memory??? Though there are 3 restore points, all not working.

Well, that's one problem marked off our list! :whistling:

Look again at the screen shot of CCleaner or open it on your computer. It shows the categories of files it deletes. They are all unnecessary files: IE history, cookies, temporary files, Windows Explorer most recently used lists, and from System, recycle bin, other temporary files, minidump files, etc. You shouldn't need any of these.

Follow the instructions in the link I provided in Post #36 to reset your System Restore function. Be sure to test is as I suggested to ensure it starts working.

I wouldn't say it's normal for System Restore to quit generating functional restore points, but I've seen it happen on several computers, including mine at the office. Following the instructions I posted to turn off System Restore and turn it back on. This will sort of "reset" it, remove all previous restore points, and it should start working again.

Do you regularly backup your data and files, using Windows NT Backup (which is a part of Windows) or some other backup software?

I'm not sure. I don't think I use any backup software, nor do I intentially set up backup files.

This should be a priority for. If nothing else, invest in an external harddrive and start taking backups using Windows Backup (Start, Accessories, System Tools, Backup).

Maybe it's not working because I'm low on memory??? Though there are 3 restore points, all not working.

Now, do you want to start working on the low memory message or would you rather start a new topic?
