    Ccleaner


    *Whenever I analyze my C:\ with Ccleaner's registry cleaner, it always shows about 70 entries for Silverlight.
    What could be causing this and would it be safe to remove just these entries?

    Installer reference issues C:\ program files (x86)Microsoft Siverlght 4.1
    There are some characters after each entry like ; \ru, \lo, \a, \el, \ea, \c.
    Each line seems to be different.

    *Also there is another block of about 40 entries called; Missing Shared DLL\C\:|Windows\ Microsoft .net\Framework\ver 1.0 then varying characters

    Other than that the analysis seems quite clean.

    I know registries cleaners can wreak havoc but I was curious because these are so similar. I am wondering if something is malfunctioning.

    I have Silverlight ver.5 installed and there are no entries in CCleaner. Update the Silverlight. About .NET 1. - I have only 4 and 4.5 installed, so I can't check if this will hapens on my PC.

    when ever you update silverlight it always leaves old reg keys behind has done so each update since it first came out, let ccleaner delete them should an error ever happen you can always download a fresh copy of silverlight.
    i let ccleaner delete them all [always opt to back up the registry]

    I use CCleaner regularly, including the registry cleaner function. I have never had CCLeaner break anything by deleting obsolete keys. I always let CCleaner back up the keys, but I've never had to restore any.

    On the other hand, I have no proof that my PC runs faster or more reliably due to the removal of those keys.

    Thank you all for your kind replies. I will rid the machine of the Ccleaner entries and keep the backup in case. I think I click 'Merge' if I want to restore, correct?

    The CCleaner backups are .reg files. Just double-click one to begin the restoration.

    >>Thank you for that; may I ask if merge would also restore the registry.
    I ask because I was taught that quite some time ago.

    Sorry, I don't know. I've never used "merge". I probably average about once per year entering things into the Registry from a .reg file.

    Double click on .reg file or right click on .reg file->Merge will do the same thing. It will add new registry entry if it does not exist in the registry and it will replace the value of the registry if it is different
