Hi,

 

I have 2 files sitting in my OneDrive that I can't figure out when and why they poped up there.

Both are .reg files, Both act like installer files (pop up window asking do I want to continue and make changes to regirstry)

 

I tried googling the file name, but getting "no results" page.

I uploaded and scanned it they are clear.

 

These are the files (PrtSC):

Can someone tell me do I need them, did they came as some update; or can I delete them?

My WinDefender shows no threats on my Notebook.

 

 

Thanks for any replay

Regards

Hi,

 

It seems you used CCleaner to clean the registry and created a backup of the changes...

 

A registry cleaner will not increase your system's speed or performance, and has the potential to break your registry to the point that your PC is no longer bootable. At Geeks to Go we strongly advise that users don't use this kind of sketchy programs. If you have doubts about this please read Registry Junk: A Windows Fact of Life by Mark Russinovich’s, Mark is a well know Windows specialist that works now for Microsoft.

Hi SleepyDude,

 

Thank you very much for clearing this out for me. Yes indeed I was and I completely forgot about it. I was clearing unnecessary files after removal of bloatware.

Thanks for the articles, I am definetly giving them a read.

 

Regards

Bat
