Hello. First post. I hope I'm doing this right. "You've got to know your limitations" I am a pretty basic user just trying to stay afloat. I had a recent bout with a browser hijacker and have had a very steep learning curve over the last few months! I (now) run XPSP2 with NAV/NIS, AVG free,SS&D 1.31, AdAwareSE 1.05, Spywareguard, Spywareblaster and Spysweeper call me paranoid if you wish! I pay attention to the various advices for IE6 settings. I am well and truly out of my depth following some of the threads here (ie Reg Monitors) The last "programme" I wrote was in Fortran. That ages me I guess! I can follow instructions with the best of them when required. As part of my work (Doctor) I often have very sensitive personal information on my system. I started using EE (despite the absurd and noxious advertising)to keep things clean but after doing a full reformat for SP2 install I found info about what it leaves behind and what it does to the registry. I have not reinstalled. (Still waiting for refund) I am hoping someone might advise me about a good internet/disc cleaner and delete utility. I am also looking for advice about a good Registry cleaner/defragger. I have been trolling the net for these over the last few days and realise there are many on offer. Although I appreciate rules based software can be a bit tricky I am not confident of my ability to operate in my registry on my own. I know you guys support CryptoSuite which seems good. I have checked out a few others like Evidence Washer, WindowsWasher, Tracks Eraser etc. I know you also support MRU blaster and have a great deal of appreciation for Lavasoft! SS&D has some regclean functions as I understand. Eraser I doubt if I could configure. RegRun V CCleaner V Ace Utilities? (Sys Internals ?too complex) I am intriuged by the Radsoft suite XPT & EEE but doubt if I could or would use half of it and have failed to get a reply to an e-mail. Does any body know about these tools and their claims? I don't mind paying for good tools and am more than happy donating where requested. Any suggestions or guidance would be greatly appreciated. Sorry about the length if you made it this far! Thanks.
