    regclean.exe

    On the recommendation of Ed Bott I downloaded from Microsoft an application "RegClean.exe." The application reports that the unzip has unzipped three files. I cannot find it. I am running Windows 98se on a Gateway 500 with 128mgs. [img]/w3timages/icons/doh.gif[/img]
    I guess, I need an extra dose of Ginko also HELP.

    By default the files extract into the windowstemp directory. Look for RegClean.exe in there.

    WinZip 8.0 will remember the last folder that you unziped to and send the new files there unless you tell it otherwise.
    You should have a "Extract to" pane in the unzip window that you can check to see where it went or change the folder.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Dave, the version of regclean that I have (may be older version I haven't checked recently) was self extracting so WinZip or other unzipping program wasn't needed.[img]/w3timages/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Re: regclean.exe

    Hi Tex:
    You should always be able to find a new file in a couple of ways:
    1) click the taskbar & press F3. Do a search on your main hard drive for regclean.exe
    2) Bring up the Find dialog box, but this time search for *.* or *.exe if you know there is one or readme.txt (there usually is one with a new utility). Go into the date tab & where it says modified, change it to "created". Then search for everything within the last day (unfortunately, you can't limit it to the last 5 minutes).

    When you download utilities & apps, the "modified" date is the date the developer modified the file last; but the "create" date will be the date it was created on your machine. (This accounts for the seemingly anomalous result of having something modified after it was created.)

    Hope this helps.
