    After I installed Spybot, I checked for issues or errors and found some then fixed them. Now I rencently just tried checking for updates but got a error message saying "Error retrieving info on this file! Socket Error #10061, connection refused". I'm at a loss on this one. I don't know if I fixed an "error" that may not have been one and it messed up something or not. I also had ccleaner clean up some issues before that as well. Maybe I should come on here and check with all you gurus on finding out what I should delete. Any ideas folks? Thanks.

    When trying to update S&D and copping an error, it might pay
    to try one of the other possible D\L sites, they show half a dozen possibles.
    Unless you found another answer from Snow's pointer.

    As you mentioned CCleaner could have.......
    maybe Regseeker would be a better prop. because on the opening page
    bottom LH side is a check box to backup anything you DELETE from the Reg.

    I dump anything it finds Green but am careful with any Red and have
    Remerged a few backups if something gets a bit flaky - to check if my
    deletion caused it.
