Complete and Partial Scans
In the Scan screen, you will notice various sections of the System that can be scanned. By default the ActivePcOptimizer will perform a complete scan covering all sections of the System. However, if you do not want to scan some section of your Windows System please unselect the check boxes.

The following explains what each scan option does:
ActiveX, OLE and COM objects
ActivePcOptimizer will search for currently installed COM and ActiveX objects. ActivePcOptimizer performs complete heuristic analysis of ActiveX, OLE, COM sections as they are interlinked and interdependent.

Invalid file associations
Sometimes a file association is created but the program to be opened is removed or deleted. ActivePcOptimizer will search for and remove such invalid file associations.

User software settings
ActivePcOptimizer will search the software settings of the currently logged user and then remove any invalid entries.

System software settings
ActivePcOptimizer will search the system software settings for all users before removing any corrupted content.

Shared DLLs section
ActivePcOptimizer analyses your System to detect and repair entries that refer to shared control files or Dynamic Link Libraries (DLLs) that are not or were never on your hard drive.

File extensions
ActivePcOptimizer cleans all the file extensions that are no longer associated with applications installed on your computer system. Many application uninstallers remove the main program files and directories from your hard drive, but do not remove the associated file extensions from the System.

Startup sections
Some applications may be configured to run as soon as you start up Windows while others may automatically configure some processes to run automatically at start up. As applications register themselves with the Windows System, they also indicate references to the processes and locations that the operating system needs to run upon start up. ActivePcOptimizer analyses the Windows System to find and remove any problem entries.

Sound and App events
Windows provides the facility to associate an application event with a certain sound (eg the ring sound when message boxes appear). If a sound file is missing Windows is unable to handle the event resulting in problems. ActivePcOptimizer repairs references to sounds and other events that are missing or nonexistent.

Uninstall sections
Uninstalled applications may continue to be recorded in the System and in the Add/ Remove section of your control panel. ActivePcOptimizer will report all such errors and remove them.

Fonts section
Windows stores each reference to a font in the System. Some of the installed font faces may not appeal to all users and consequently are removed. If the font section is not cleaned regularly, Windows can start showing different font faces instead of those intended.

Help Section
All applications following Microsoft standards must register their help files to the Windows System. ActivePcOptimizer looks for missing, erroneous or orphaned links.

Application paths
Sometimes when program executables are moved to some other location on your hard-drive, their associations are not updated properly, cluttering the System. Whenever you launch a program, Windows first searches the Application Paths Section and missing entries will only delay program launch. ActivePcOptimizer search and removes such entries.

System drivers
Symptoms of having invalid device drivers include messages upon startup similar to: "This file is either referenced in your System or your Win.ini ... You should either remove this reference or reinstall this file's associated application...” Sometimes if a problem is too serious Windows can fail to start up normally. ActivePcOptimizer analyses your System to detect and then remove the causes of such errors.

Shared folders
ActivePcOptimizer scans through shared folders System keys and checks if these folders link to valid paths. If the reference does not exist then the entry is removed since this is considered to be an invalid entry.

Invalid shortcuts
In this section ActivePcOptimizer scans through the System keys of any shortcuts on a PC to check if the shortcuts link to a valid location in the system, such as, for example, a shortcut on the desktop that points to winamp. Now if you remove winamp and the shortcut remains, this is considered to be an error in ActivePcOptimizer and is removed by this option.
Just because one System repair application finds more errors than another, does not mean that it is identifying genuine errors, or is then able to fix them.
