Now I get a pop up saying IP HELPER IS NOT WORKING.
I click the recommended check online for solutions and it goes away.

I really cannot understand what is happening to your computer. Ccleaner is one of the most popular downloads used by our members. I use it myself. No one has ever reported a problem. I do not understand what is causing your computer to malfunction after you use ccleaner. Reluctantly, I must suggest for you not to use the software.

Yesterday I also downloaded two optional updates that windows update provided.
Windows said they weren't essential but I downloaded them anyways.

I was also getting the battery needs replacing notices the last few days which is strange as it's always plugged in.

Now If I can get my files off that Vista CP I'll just use it for rainy days from now on.
My brother said I can have this borrowed windows 8 PC for real cheap :)

Unfortunately it's a few years old which is why my brother will sell it to me.

I'm still hoping I can get some help in the Crashes thread. :)

You did not understand. EVERYONE with 7 or 8 will get a free 10, between the Summer and October. Age does not matter.

I was wondering if CCleaner got rid of an essential file because my CP is SO old.

Ill be honest, I have no idea why CC would make those changes. For whatever reason the software is not right for you, I suggest that you stop using it. You can get rid of the temp files by using disk cleanup and deleting the temp files manually.

Reading your Avast and Grime, Avast wants you to buy GrimeKiller. Take my advice do not even consider it, I did and paid by having several software titles removed with no prior notice. Computer was left in such a state that I required to reinstall everything to "Factory Settings". I certainly wish that someone had forewarned me in not using "GrimeKiller".

Thanks!

I'm already frustrated with the free version of Avast! as it doesn't let ME decide whether to keep something.

I am glad that my thread was of help. I certainly wished someone had warned me about GrimeKiller, saving me all the hassle. I use Avast at present, never liked it or ever Will, computer plays havoc when Avast is installed and default.

My advice relating to Avast Grime Buster, is have nothing to do with this software. I installed and used this software and it caused complete chaos with computer. Required a factory setting of computer due to excess removal of software by GB. I certainly wished someone had warned me in advance.
