But now, I am worried that I may have ended up doing something that affected my machine. Luckily, as if I weren't an idiot (as if
), I backed up the registry changes from both times I have ran it.
My question is, should I restore those entries (starting with the more previous one, and then restoring the first one), and then run the cleaner again, but CAREFULLY sort through the entries (a failed photoshop install comes to mind) to satisfy my paranoia? Or should I just be careful from now on, seeing that my machine appears to be working okay? I ask this because I don't want to be taking any unnecessary risks with my registry anymore
E: I don't know if this should have went under the "Windows" or the "Other Software", please forgive me if I was wrong.
