    Windows XP Media Center Edition is Windows XP Professional with additional media enhancements.

    Hope you do not mind the advice. CCleaner is an excellent utility, but our advice is not to use the registry cleaner aspect of the program.
    Generally unless you are absolutely sure you understand the implications of altering or removing registry entries do not do so.
    At your convenience, and when of course you consider the matter resolved would you please mark the thread SOLVED

    Don't use any registry cleaner/booster/optimizer/tuneup type program, no matter what it claims it can do. They do little-to-nothing to improve speed or performance, but what they're good at doing is breaking programs and damaging the operating system.

    I agree.

    In addition, EVERYBODY should use ERUNT to automatically maintain the latest 30 daily versions of the Registry and allow for restoring them, even to a non-bootable system.
