Yep - I don't recommend it myself (well there's not really a point since it can't prevent, it can only set things back to defaults).

It can find problems you didn't know about, though... the best section for that is section 5 (Registration center).

So that PC World issue he promised to write is out? :cool:

i used the wrong word - preventative; but i wanted to discover what could be wrong and "prevent" any future problems.

c:\windows\system32\oleau32.dll version 5.1.2600.2180

it is also suggested run "Repair Permission" which is found in Tools Dialogue. xp home will need secedit.exe. (I use xp home).

I am unable to complete system file checker- I need Windows XP Home CD. Files needed to be copied for DLL.

i do not have one- my Win CD is mixed with the OEM Win CD. all compressed and mixed with trialware and drivers etc.
