When I run WindowsLive OneCare registry cleaner, there is always one uncleaned item at the end of the process. This error is always described as follows:

1 error, 0 skipped by user.
COM/ActiveX (1 error, 0 skipped by user)
Error item
HKCR\CLSID\{1171A62F-05D2-11D1-83FC-00A0C9089C5A}\

Should I be concerned about this?

If so, how do I fix it?

Thank you!

You should be worried only if you have real problems with your computer. If it runs well, ignore this message.

Might I add to this that registry cleaners don't actually do that much good to your registry?

Dear Olrik/Skeptic,

Regarding your posts in this topic, would you know what this error item is linked too? and can it be cleared up?

Many thanks,
