    Default CCleaner

    I am attempting to clean my computer for the first time using CCleaner. I have scanned and have a list of issues, (quite a few in fact). Most of the issues I can relate to, one however is perplexing me. I have a number of issues with the green check mark, labled "Uninstaller Reference Issue," and then most with a number after (such as KB821557. I am lost. What are these and am I okay to go ahead and let CCleaner wipe them out? :roll:

    Hi - Ignore the 'Uninstaller Reference Issue', this is, apparently, a legitimate referenceand can be left. The KB refers to Microsoft 'Knowledge Base' references. These are specific Help/Information references and can be removed.
    I know everything about nothing, nothing about everything and precious little about the bit in between.

    errr...unless i'm mistaken those KB items are knowledge base HOTFIXES and CAN be removed but SHOULD NOT be.

    ''and let CCleaner wipe them out?''

    When using the ''issues'' option in the cleaner it always gives you the option to save before delete I would use that option and save it somewhere I made a folder ''cc '' and save it to there just in case.
