    Missing "Type Libraries" references

    Hi, gang.

    CCleaner reports three missing "Type Libraries" references in the registry, says they're "left behind after uninstalling software", and recommends deleting the registry keys.

    SCREEN CAP
    .

    Do these "I" files (ISyncEngine, IGetSyncStatusCallback, IGetLinkCallback) ring any bells? Googling yields pages of computerese that are too dense for me auld brain.

    As far as I'm aware, the only syncing I do is between my laptop and my still-used iPod Classic. I don't have a smartphone, nor do I backup data to the cloud. (Someday I'll look into offsite backups, Whistle.gif but my current broadband connection is too slow.)

    Am just curious about these registry items. They're causing no harm. If you know what they are, great. Otherwise, please don't go to any trouble sleuthing.

    Thanks kindly,

    Brooks

    My advice is not to mess with the registry unless you have a problem. There's no benefit from deleting a few entries, and a possibility of causing a problem.

    Have you un-installed the OneDrive client?

    (A Google search for the GUID {BAE13F6C-0E2A-4DEB-AA46-B8F55319347C} shows a lot of results for OneDrive.)

    Hope this helps...

    Many thanks, Rick. It hadn't occurred to me to look up the GUID number.

    I do recall a OneDrive icon popping up in my system tray a while back, not knowing what the hell it was, and after verifying that I could safely do so, uninstalling OneDrive. So I guess these are the leftovers. Again, thank you!

    (No idea where OneDrive came from. Maybe it hitchhiked on a Windows update.....or maybe it had been lurking for years, and surfaced for a breath of air.)

    I'll make a restore point, then blitz those entries.

    For info, a restore point is probably overkill. Just make sure when you click the Fix selected issues button in CCleaner (even the portable version) that you click the Yes button in the subsequent Do you want to backup changes to the registry? dialog.

    If necessary you can always merge the REG file back.

    Hope this helps...
