    I have WindowsXP SP3

    Where does the System Restore program reside? I want to
    add it to the programs to be left alone in CCleaner.

    Would I have to add some registry entry too?

    Desperate, Frank

    If you're desperate now, brace yourself for some real desparation when
    CCCleaner damages your Windows installation. Like most registry cleaners it
    is useless (at best) and destructive (at worst). Have you ever used a
    stopwatch to actually measure the numerous benefits it boasts about or do
    you rely on the warm feeling that you get inside when reading about the
    wonderful things it will do? Many people use the word "snake oil" when
    talking about registry cleaners.

    The System Restore program is called rstrui.exe and it normally dwells in
    the folder c:/windows\restore.

    ====================================
    %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

    C:/System Volume Information\_restore

    I don't think System Restore is affected by CCleaner
    (at least I've never had an issue with it).

    However...if you open CCleaner and go to...Tools /
    System Restore button...you can manually remove
    one or more restore points.

    Thank you. I use the "Microsoft RegClean" for the registry.

    Is there a Microsoft product equivalent to CCleaner? I
    would like to know about it. Is there one in the
    "SysInternals" suite? I have leased out space in my
    computer to all sorts of software because Microsoft does not
    seem to have anything like them. Can you suggest any
    better software to do CCleaner's job?

    Wary of the Thought Police:

    Microsoft Reg Clean is no longer supported by MS
    According to MS registry cleaners do not give any advantage
    If you don't know how to clean up your registry manually why would you want
    to trust this to a tool?

    My ideal was to leave about 3 Restore points in.

    I have used CCleaner for years and it never ever has done any damage to my
    registry...
    BUT I read every line it wishes to correct just to be sure and if in doubt I
    leave the line alone.
    CCleaner can be run without running the reg cleaner part and as such it
    still is a valuable
    tool .

    You can *NOT* arbitrarily remove restore points (and expect System
    Restore to work afterwards).

    You can delete all but the most recent restore point (using the built-in
    Disk Cleanup tool (cleanmgr.exe).

    Or you can reduce the amount of space allocated to System Restore from
    its default of 12% of your partition to about 1 GB (using the System
    Restore tab/Settings button from System Properties). As you reduce the
    allocated space, System Restore automatically removes restore points,
    starting with the oldest.

    There is a body of thought that Microsoft's "Reg Clean" was a placebo. That
    is, it did virtually nothing aside from giving the user the soothing
    illusion that his registry was now "clean."

    If a given bit of software was any good, there is a body of thought that
    Microsoft would have bought the company - or at least licensed this "good"
    software - and included it in the OS. Therefore, if you harken to this
    theory, the conclusion is: "If it ain't Microsoft, it's dirt (sometimes
    mud)."

    The time-tested advice to "leave the registry alone" is simply not
    acceptable to those who dust inside the covers of all their books or wax the
    underside of their car's fenders. There may be a pill for this malady.

    There may also be a 12-step program...

    Nah, what he needs to brace himself for is the spew from a
    closed minded ignoramus who is so far behind the times in
    technology and capabilities that he needs to consistantly spew
    his garbage, known to be garbage by millions of users, to this
    group's participants.

    Go ahead and ask him to cite any verfiable evidence of his
    allegations against cleaners; he can't do it. What he does do
    is libel and disparage users of anything that automates or
    assists in the management of registry problems, claiming he
    knows what he talks about but has never, ever cited anything
    but self-serving posts written by another of his small gang of
    idiots out to lie to anyone that will listen.
    Good registry cleaners are excellent tools. Yet this myopic
    slob seems to never mention anything but the fact that they
    "speed up" or not, a computer. He won't admit that, and
    doesn't realize apparently, that a registry cleaner can easily
    result in a 20S shortening of boot times, depending on the
    problems present IN the registry. 20S is the most noticeable
    and a common increment due to defaults. Most of the time it's
    true that one won't notice the speed ups that result from a
    registry cleaner, but that as a sole issue totally ignores the
    many other tasks such programs do and problems it can
    alleviate.
    The most "evidence" he's ever referred to is a "lot" (and
    there are actually very, very few of them) of other posts from
    unknown posters claiming their machines were trashed after
    using a registry cleaner. He seems to think the Registry is
    one very complex, impossible for the average bear to learn,
    part of the OS when in reality just the opposite is true if
    one wishes to look into it at all.

    Almost NO ONE, but this small group of idiots use the term
    "SNAKE OIL" when they talk about registry cleaners. Often the
    first time one hears that word is from them; not from open
    minds who have taken the time to gather knowledge and
    experience on the subject.

    As for being destructive, I have NEVER, in all the machines
    I have worked on and used registry cleaners on, had one cause
    any damage to a system. But I HAVE seen MS tools like chkdsk
    completely remove any ability to boot the subject machine. In
    some, not many, cases chkdsk can misinterpret some corrupted
    areas and in attempting to fix them, stop the machine from
    boothing. I've also seen a LOT of programs that screw up on
    install, including Microsoft applications, which a Registry
    Cleaner can quite quickly and easily repair for you if you
    can't get System Restore et al to help out with.

    His main set of abilities is rationalizing anything he wants
    to be true and to make everyone think the way he does, or else
    be sbjected to his condescending, ignorant further
    misinformation and stated opinions about how sorry you're
    going to be for not thinking the same way he does.

    Thanks again for this opportunity to expose this wrong-headed,
    unethical and ignorant spew of misinformation he just loves to
    spead any time a registry cleaner is mentioned.

    Umm, does that mean you don't use any software applications as
    tools? No word processor, no spread sheet, no coding, no
    menues, no macros, no msconfig, no services, no background
    tasks, all of which are tools? etc. etc.? What do you do
    when you want to decompress a file? Do it by hand, scribbling
    it all out on paper and then copying the code back into a
    program format? What about when you install a program? Do you
    make all the registry changes yourself manually? Or do you let
    the program make changes necessary for you? If you try to say
    you don't use any software that needs the registry I'll call
    you a liar. It must be a real ball watching you trying to send
    an e-mail or post to a newsgroup!

    lol, have fun!

    Intelligent response. I wish more folks had your attitude.
    It's always best to know what you're causing to happen and
    you'll learn things a lot faster that way, too.

    Placebo, Nothing!! Actually it pooched Microsoft Office entries which
    then required one to reinstall Office to straighten out the problems.

    System Restore has saved my life on several occasions, even
    when installing new printers, so I want to keep a few points
    on the system.

    Can I store the extra restore points on a memory stick? Is
    there a way to export them via software or should I just
    copy over some files?

    The C:/System Volume Information\*.* folder seems to hold
    the restore info; is this enough to transfer over?

    I wonder if he is by any chance related to Sarah Palin?
    (Only at least she's making some big bucks; so in that sense, and *only* in
    that sense, she isn't).

    Not only that, but it also messed up my Netscape.
    Fortunately they pulled it.

    What a joke! We do see posts with evidence of damages done by these
    useless cleaners in these groups but when these posts show up you
    conveniently disappear, when it comes to registry cleaners you have a
    case of selective blindness...

    Not *ONCE* have you ever taken the initiative to help anyone in need
    after they have experienced difficulties caused by these cleaners, yet
    anytime someone exposes these useless cleaners for what they are you
    immediately come out with your ridiculous diatribe.
