HBCD is amazingly useful, but as far as I can tell most, if not all, cleaners and uninstallers are just about useless. The cleaners only clean the minixp drive (which is for me X:) and not my main drive (C:), and the uninstallers only detect programs in X:, not C:. And I'm not sure if it's related, but speccy says that everything on my computer is "Class not registered". Is there anyway to fix these issues?

Hi tacotardis42

 

Google Runscanner.

 

Try something like:

Runscanner site:reboot.pro

 

Any questions post back.

The reason that they work on the current system (X:) is by design

 

HBCD includes a lot of things that are to be used on a running system (like the cleaners and speccy, etc.)  They are just older versions (now that HBCD is a bit long in the tooth) that were pulled together into one package.  Yes, HBCD *also* has a bootable PE, but the majority of the tools aren't meant to work on a PE booted system...

 

While there are other ways to try to "trick" some of them to run "off-line", but that's usually not what the author of the tool intended.

Ok, thank you for telling me. I will try out the trick with runscanner though, as soon as I figure out how to use it.

How do I use the program? I really have no idea, even using the instructions, CCleaner only seems to run in X:, not C:. Can someone tell me how to make it work?
