Here there is a comprehensive list of  the best free anti-malware scanners:,2

In particular, I'd recommend the use of some portable antivirus/antimalware like Microsoft Safety Scanner and Superantispyware.

Btw, I mistakenly clicked upon the unsubscribe link before coming back so I hope this reply gets posted and I remain subscribed. I should think twice before clicking once, as the saying goes.

You could restore Help Improve Proofing Tools feature in Office 2010 with a double-click on this attachment (press yes when requested).

I think that your office version is collecting your data (probably written from you in previous moments), and Microsoft is asking if you want to send a selection of your data to improve their software.

If you like the idea, you can send that information to Microsoft.
I don't read anything of private there, and helping a Microsoft product is not a bad thing.

If you have a different opinion about it, you can confirm this entry in blue "Don't send, and don't ask me again".

You decide.

You shouldn't be worried, because next time you will know what to attach if your problem happens again.
During the creation of a post there is a browse button to attach your vss log file, just in case.

They are referring to the fact that I didnt buy a certificate and signed my programs with it.

I am just one person and don't really feel like spending that kind of money lol

neroilo, I haven't been able to find any free ones. And until my programs are making me the kind of money to warrant the price they will stay unsigned, just like they have for the last 10 years lol


Yep, unfortunately I have just discovered that doesn't exist a cheap service better than this one:

But I don't understand why they expect to be paid every year...

This is the reply i received from Secunia;" I must say I am surprised you have installed it without contacting the vendor because it does not have a valid digital signature."

If you're interested to sign your programs, I found these links:

File & folders are not registry settings, so the answer is no.

I think Iobit Uninstaller is a good choice. It has an intuitive interface.

I also noticed from the log that you have 70 shadow copies! I wonder if that might have something to do with it.

This brings me to a consideration.
In my vss log I can't see the number of shadow copies handled by Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider, because I'm using Symantec SymSnap VSS Provider (installed by Norton Ghost).
Maybe it could be useful to report this information also in cases like this.

I suppose that for now I should create a specific cmd file to run as shortcut, because the program itself lacks an option to run a batch script before and after a registry backup.

nope  :wink:


Did you try to rename your "settings.ini" to "settings_old.ini"? Let the program creates a new one.

Of course, I suggest you considering eventual language-dependent settings. A language check could be useful in these occurrences.

Yeah that is yet another reason why this is going to be a pain lol

Not really... most language-dependent settings are on Windows XP.
At maximum another IF statement.  :cheesy:

I am planning on adding more repairs to put these services back. But it is no easy task and I have to be very careful so it will be a little bit before I have it ready. :wink:

In these days I thought about a new feature that it could be useful to restore system without GUI.
A command line switch as -restorelastbackup to restore last created backup through a shortcut.
Manual way is calling dos_restore.cmd file, but at the moment it is needed to update target path every time I create a new backup.

@peterr: I have just noticed that you copied my previous answer in that thread without my authorization.

Please don't do it anymore, and use your thoughts to describe things. It's pretty annoying.

I am not too good with pc lingo but I think you are suggesting I create a thread of keys to exclusde when running Ccleaner because the program cannot be developed. If so I understand.

More importantly, I was just in a Windows Seven Forum and I asked a question about system restore. The person replied that I should stop using a second registry program or I will have trouble. I don't know how to defend your program and doubt there will be a conflict. I usually drop the hint and tell them the name of the program when they write back.
I tried to copy the conversation with this shortcut if you wish to comment. There won't be a problem will there? I do not know what to say other than i was going to contact the author.

Probably he wanted to say that System Restore is bundled in Windows 7 (considered better than XP) and you won't have any problem using it.
But if you aren't careful it could be damaged or corrupted as any Windows component.
For this reason I think using a reliable secondary registry backup is a good precaution.
Registry backup is stable to me, and I never had critical problems...

Everyone has their own ideas.

I don't think it's possible because most registry cleaners (including CCleaner) are closed source software.

I suggest instead to create a new topic about all registry keys to exclude from removal i.e. Registry Keys Ignore List.

I have no problem to share some registry keys that don't need to be deleted.  :smiley:

I saw on my brothers computer (win xp) that scheduled backup started "Registry Backup v1.4.1(latest beta)" but nothing happened, vss didnt start and there was no log file that so ever so I could see that was wrong.
In "the Task Manager" I closed "Registry Backup" and after that I tried "manual backup" :wink: and it worked, I did a logoff and log in again then autobackup worked as usual.
But autobackup usually works!
It may be that my brother's computer is tricky, just wanted to tell if it's something not right.


If you perform a manual backup, and the same day an auto backup, the last one won't have success because there is already a manual backup.
Is it your case?

OK here is the new build.

Sorting of the restore list should work great now and I increased the timeout for the program waiting for VSS.

Lets see how it goes :-)


No problem here. I hope for the others too! :smiley:

« on: September 11, 2012, 01:29:29 pm »
I have always believed one should never use Ccleaner or any registry cleaner as they do more harm than good.
With this new registry back up I am now not sure. If I used my registry backup before I used the registry cleaner at Ccleaner, would I be able to restore the registry as though nothing happened if there was trouble after the cleaning?
Thank you

Yes, of course you can use RB to restore a previous registry backup, on condition that you perform regular registry backups ( i.e. I don't suggest to restore a registry backup made one month ago, especially if you install a lot of programs or various windows updates).
Anyway, CCleaner's registry cleaner asks through repetitive alerts to backup in advance any registry entry you decide to remove.

So, if you perform both methods, you're covered for good.  :smiley:

I hope my english is decent.  :wink:

About NTFS Id 55:

It could be caused by a third-party application running in background (like Norton or other antivirus stuff), by a corrupted file system (chkdsk is required) or by a hard-disk issue/failure.

About Kernel-Processor-Power Id 34:

About SidebySide ID 33, you shouldn't be worried. It means that an application you opened at that moment doesn't find the correct MS Visual C++ version, as explained here:
In this case, it isn't sufficient to know the ID, but the full message to know what version you need.

That's enough. You can safely ignore all warnings (marked with yellow icon) and other events could be just temporary.

So I was able to tick core networking and file & printersharing, and now I have file sharing with the firewall on :D

In this link there are three images about main Windows Firewall exceptions to set in Windows 7 (including Network discovery, which it should be enabled):

Edit: right the first entry in the lognotes:

"Printer HP psc 2350 series met gedeelde bronnaam HP psc 2350 series kan niet door de afdrukspooler worden gedeeld. Fout 1. De printer kan niet door anderen in het netwerk worden gebruikt.

In English: "Printer HP psc 2350 series with shared name HP psc 2350 series can't be shared by the printerspooler. Error 1. The printer cannot be used by others in the network".
or (don't follow the steps regarding Group Policy Management Console, unless you know what you're doing).

I have just tried that but that won't work. Network discovery & file sharing are turned of immediately.

Note that I'm assuming you've already restored the default state of all Windows 7 services.

Please open event viewer (start > enter eventvwr.msc in the search box > left mouse click). Double-click on custom views (left column), search and report here any Critical/Error events in administrative events category.

In version 1.4.1, I receive "Always use Fallback Method instead of Volume Shadow Copy" but only if I create a manual backup. Previous version isn't affected by this issue.

No errors in Event Viewer here, probably because RB uses Symantec SymSnap VSS Software Provider since I installed Ghost 15. So no errors related to Volume Shadow Copy Service in this machine.

"Right click menu from the task bar now works".  Right-clicking where, and what should it produce? 

When you right click on the taskbar for the program. The close option from it didnt work. I had to do a few tricks but I got it working.

Now it works. Thanks!  :smiley:
By the way, can you increase minimize and close icons at the top right of the window? These are even more little than mouse cursor.

Restore list is now better sorted.

Unfortunately the list isn't sorted for my usage.
I'm using the european date format (dd/mm/yyyy) on my system.
