    Cc cleaner screwed up my system


    So here is the deal.

    A few weeks back my system had this problem where it kept making the active window inactive.

    After weeks trying i installed cc cleaner

    Did a nice job.

    2 days later, windows 8.1 resets. EVerything.

    No charms, no apps on startup all programs back to default settings.

    Im so pissed off. Even system restore doesnt want to fix anything.

    To top it off the search function on the folders , dont work.

    When you run CCleaner there are a many of available options that you as the the user can opt to select (or not) prior to running CCleaner.

    Can you detail here what CCleaner options you have set?

    This may help forum members to offer assistance to you. The current up to date version of CC is version 5
