    Hi,

    Ok.. so pass along false information all to your hearts content.
    LOL.
    No, Jeff, it's just something you read and were eager to belief. That's all there's to it.
    And this is not a you or me thing. It's just computer science and common sense, that's all.

    Cheers,

    Microsoft will always say no, because they don't want to go record saying they support 3rd party apps. Hell they will say use no other media player other than the built in ones.
    If it was so necessary why doesn't MS include on with Windows??

    Because it provides no benefit to them, they don't want some 90 year old grandma running it and deleting all her files.

    So if you have a badly malware infected computer, just leave it alone then if re-install isn't an option.

    Registry "Cleaners" = Snake Oil
    How can something that's free qualify as "snake oil"

    No Nietzsche quote for that one.

    But it's somehow ok to have her use CCleaner?
    What makes you think that MS would create a tool that would be so dangerous and a third party vendor would make one so much better?

    If it were computer science you would have proof and you have none.

    I don't think it's better either, those tools are meant for people who know what they are doing.
