I had problems with my Canon printer.  I went to Canon for advice and thought I was forwarded to a Canon rep.   Not so it now appears  he kept telling me he had to clean up my computer and would be happy to help.  After dumbly allowing him to access my pc, he kept going through and telling me everything that was wrong.  His solution of course was something he wanted me to buy.   After dismissing him, my pc does not work correctly.   Is there a safe, easy to follow cleaner that I can use to put things back to normal?

We need some more info on the computer. What is the make and model of it?  What type of problems are you having? I assume it is a Win 7 unit.

As for registry cleaners, they are not to be used. They will take out stuff that allows the unit to operate properly. Plus, you gain very little from using them.
