When I run optimizer programs like Ashampoo One step, uniblue, Winutilities, etc, the report often lists dozens if not 100s of errors that the program says is slowing my computer. The codes are meaningless to me as far as deciding what to let it “fix”.

Of the following typical error codes that come up, are there any that I can ALWAYS allow to fix or are there any that I should NEVER allow the program to fix? I feel that I often throw out necessary parts of programs that I shouldn't have because some programs don't work properly after I allow an optimization.

       Error Codes: Missing type lb  (or lib)                                          Invalid Shortcut

                            Missing or invalid Path                                Incorrect file extension

                             Empty Key                                              Incorrect File Association

When I was using Winutilities, I would “fix” everything. I havn't tried the other two. You should do a back up, run one of those software, and see how it goes. If it messes up your programs, get rid of it. Reinstall the backup, and then move on to the next one.
