I will not use anything from IoBit as they test their applications as freeware first then when the problems are identified by users they are fixed then they release the update as Pro shareware:

lol is it worthy to get Advanced System care Pro when Free version does everything already?

Deep scan registry doesnt seem too good to use that always.

 Deep registry scan caused me troubles. It is better not to mess up with registry.

Could this be a suspicious fela for my dear windows installer?

The only reason i use Advanced System Care was for the system optimization,
altough some things i could configure manualy and some not, but what thanks for the info about not messing with registrys, i learned my lesson IMO, i dont know why but seems my dear "windows installer" was a victim eitheir to this or microsoft great crapy updates.

I feel the same... hope they keep the defragmenter tool out of this policy, otherwise, bye bye...

Otaku Ichise, haven't you said that the installation of XP was from the scratch? Did you use ASC in it? ???

Well, it could change registry, and, maybe something related to Windows Installer. I'm not sure and I don't want to make FUD.

One thing im almost certain is that windows update does screw "windows installer",
now can depend on what version of XP we install too, i definitly was cursed by microsoft.

This one reason now that i should learn to install and use Linux OS.

Go with Kubuntu. KDE interface is very intuitive and similar to Windows. The learning curve is not that high (talking about interface, not Linux concepts).

Wubi is the easiest way to go for Ubuntu and/or Kubuntu.  The Wubi installer will put C:\install.exe on your computer.  Mbam (when using Windows) will detect C:\install.exe as a Trojan.  It's harmless, you can either have mbam ignore it or put it in quarantine.

If you want to practice, indeed, wubi will be very useful.
