As each error can have a different cure or cause.

It's not possible to cure them all except by replacing the PC with the issues for one without issues. Sorry if that seems way out there but with hundreds of errors and nothing more to go on, there's little else to suggest. Reloading the OS might fix it but what if the error is a too hot CPU or bad HDD, RAM?

I'd like to hear more what you mean by clean my system. While I like CCLEANER and it's file cleanups so folk don't read what it does and then complain when cookies and passwords were cleaned out.

The MS support tech said they would charge me to clean those errors instead of resetting the system which would delete all of my software. My PC is 3 years old. I plan to purchase a new one within next 6 months but the machine still runs well. I just want to get rid of those errors b/c I use advancedcare everyday to scan my system to remove malware/spyware etc. Within the past 3 months i've been hearing a high pitch squealing sound coming from the PC tower. I do not know what that is and neither did the tech. Any opinion on that?

If the machine runs well, there's no need to do anything about those undisclosed errors.

There are far better programs than ASC to find malware, so we should advice you to NEVER run that any more to prevent even more errors. Better replace it with MBAM (Malwarebytes' Antimalware), a free download.

I don't have any opinion, alas, on that sound. But I don't think it's caused by software.

Some owners think PCs require no care.

Your PC has made noises that tell you it needs attention. Some owners ignore that and after years of seeing this my thought is that's good for the industry. If folk did care for the machines and learned to fix small issues like clogged or failing fans, the industry would not do so well.

If you take care maintenance of your PC or Laptop then it work properly, your machine need cleaning not per day but your should clean it one time in a week.
