    I just reformatted my computer, got all the updates, havn't tweakws anything except making everything look and be arranged the way I want (there is no system tweaking), only turning off that retarded language bar and disabling the indexing service, and not even through services.msc or msconfig, I right-clicked on my C:\ drive, went to properties, and un-checked indexing. Yet, systool and regcleaner refuse to cooperate. Systool crashes as soon as it opens and I get this:

    Regcleaner, however, just never appears, but appears in my process list:

    Operating system is Windows XP Home Edition as seen in my specs, and yes it is legitimate.

    To the first one.


    Have you error checked your memory? Always a good thing to do.

    Where it states "click here". The file that caused the error is in the upper right of the report.

    yea it's systool
    don't forget that regcleaner isn't working either. It fires up but just never is displayed, it shows up in the task managet but not on the desktop, or anywhere else for that matter

    Looks like I'll be running windows 98 for a few months

    Hmph, sorry I can't help yah out. Most I can tell you is do another fresh install of XP and do not update.

    Best of luck!

    What I meant hat is install one hotfix at a time as a trial and error.

    I'm not gonna go to that website and install 70+ updates one by one... I'm already on Windows 2000. Which is a pain in the ass. :mad: I just can't win.

    Did you check your XP disk? Perhaps it's scratched or dirty, causing a bad install.

    I'm actually having the same problem as hat with RegCleaner but i have XP Pro not Home. After i click on the program shortcut it doesnt start up yet it shows up in task manager, i click on it the 2nd time, same thing, now i have 2 of them running. Only after i click on it a 3rd time it starts up so i go task manager and close the other 2. Its pretty weird, anyone figured this out yet?

    I do use ccleaner, an excellent program, doesn't seem to clear up any issues though. There ARE no issues after a fresh install to be cleared!! :/

    I just had to do an XP reinstall myself cause my OS was possibly corrupted by a bad install file. I'll have to see if RegCleaner works like it should after all this and I do use CCleaner on the regular basis but that didn't fix this problem for me.As far as Systool, haven't tried it yet, i'm still pretty new at this stuff, i have to read up on it sometime and figure out how it works.
