Re: Do Not Use CCleaner!

Mitchell,

In 7, no I do not. I'm in Win7, @ the moment. Came to 7 to get some back-up done. Will check CCleaner settings in Win8... will be back there, soon. Should be the same as, the only CCleaner setting I change from the defaults is the uncheck "clear Jumplists'.

Yep, it is the same in Windows8. The 2 items you mention are not checked.

That is why you're not experiencing the issue. Which I stated in my analysis a few posts back.

Ah, yes, understood. Always, default, except for Jump Lists. Do fine that way, it would seem :joyous:

It seems to be a known issue on the Piriform forums also, I thought it'd have been fixed by now. :(

Anyway, whatever. I've decided against using CCleaner in Windows 8 for the time being.

When I re-visited this problem today, I was able to find a solution: the system file checker.

Run command prompt as an administrator and type "sfc /scannow". Windows will find integrity errors and repair them, and your Control Panel/other metro apps will work again! :) *Updated OP*

Most likely. I found Auslogics BoostSpeed 5 had the same issue. It seems to have been fixed in CCleaner now though.
