Why Do You Want To Clear Your Registry?
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / April 14, 2008 4:22 AM PDT

Have there been problems? If so, let us know any exact error messages you're seeing.. If not, then for most users, registry cleaners don't provide much improvement in performance, but it's up to you.

In addition, please tell us more about your computer.. Operating system? Brand name and model number, etc.

If you've got CCleaner installed, can't you click on Start-All Programs-, etc..?? How did you install it?

Hope this helps and let us know more.

if you right click the recycle bin and it's not there, then it's probably not installed properly.
