    How to erase old windows file after re-install

    I re-installed windows 8 on my laptop from a partition and now when I run ccleaner it shows invalid registry entries which I can not remove. Its driving me crazy. Also on another note I found a post for a .bat file that cleans the comp but I would like one for windows 8.1 as the other is for a previous version of windows. Here is the batch file from the other post. I only changed the IE version.

    @Echo off
    cleanmgr /sageset:1000
    del /F /S /Q  "%systemroot%\temp\*.*"
    del /F /S /Q  "C:\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\History\*.*"
    del /F /S /Q  "C:\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\*.*"

    If you deleted the ActiveX/COM issues you could damage the system which is why CCleaner doesn't delete them - other registry cleaners aren't so fussy and that is how systems get screwed.

    Advanced System Care lists those entries as High Risk - so leave them.

    The Missing TypeLib entries are usually what's left after uninstalling something and you would need to locate those entries in the registry to manually delete them - not worth bothering with and I always get the Snipping tool one as well which it also won't delete - again - just leave it.

    For any future registry scans, just uncheck the ActiveX option and you won't see them again.

    Yes, leave the registry entries alone, or you'll be performing another reinstall shortly.
    If the system is stable & performing well, leave well enough alone. You don't need to scour the registry anymore.

    This is a lot like the event viewer in that you'll have thousands of meaningless errors that in all likelihood will
    have absolutely no bearing on system stability or performance. Accept it, then delete them.

    For regular daily clean-up maintenance, use this, it's 100% safe and effective, and you won't loose many of your logon passwords.
    Reserve and configure CCleaner for the less frequent but more thorough jobs.
    Invest a little time and energy in a well thought out BACKUP regimen and you will have minimal down time, and headache.

    Build your own system; get everything you want and nothing you don't.
    Latest Build:
    ASUS X99 Deluxe, Core i7-5960X, Corsair Hydro H100i, Plextor M6e 256GB M.2 SSD, Corsair DOMINATOR Platinum 32GB DDR4@2666, W8.1 64 bit,
    EVGA GTX980, Seasonic PLATINUM-1000W PSU, MountainMods U2-UFO Case, and 7 other internal drives.

    Won't Disk Cleanup be of any assistance in removing some of the junk?
