Once it is downloaded, turn on the ccleaner. When it pops up there there will be 4 icons on the left that will say cleaner, registry, tools, and options.


1st, left click on the cleaner. After you are on cleaner, on the bottom right of the screen, click 'Run Cleaner' and let it run.


When it has completed, you will know for it will say 100% on the screen.


When it has completed, click 'Registry' on the left side of the page underneath 'Cleaner'.


Once you are on 'Registry, click the 'Scan For Issues' located on the middle bottom of the screen. After it has done its scan, click the 'Fix selected issues' button.


Kindly let me know when it has complete or if you have any questions about it.

I have tried everything suggested I think I will have to pack it in I will try the links above and hope for the best. If that doesnt work Then I will hide the update and not be bothered.

Expert:  ITTechChris replied 5 years ago.

Alright my friend. Some updates that come out are incompatible with some service packs but I wanted to make sure we could try everything before saying so.

The next update that comes out should correct everything.
