  1. Do my computer really need a Registry cleaner

    Almost needed... but caution! I've tried almost every freeware 'reg cleaner' in the last few decades. Most remove stuff that you don't want removed; windows settings that you like, but which are not defaulted by MS. Generally I like (freeware; not tricky gotcha's) the frequently self-up[censored], when you are on the internet. Only one that know know does that: "Advanced SystemCare Free". Most reliable apps are underpowered, so spe[censored]t problems need rare, speciliased apps. IMO: "Registry Crawler" is old, but it removes very particular rubbish I find. Don't go for the one Advanced SystemCare with added-on virus protector. Keep your firewall, virus protector independent & free. Also frequently self-up[censored], when you are on the internet: AVG, Avast, Avira (anti-virus) & IMO Comodo Internet Security.
  2. USB Not detected on any PC

    Whatever operation system I have on my laptops, I have at least two, multi-booting. The easiest of adding Xubuntu, Pinguy. These operating systems (good quality freeware) install very quickly (~15 minutes) & easily onto and Windows hard disk. They will auto-install for most hardware, devices, networks, memory sizes, CPU, ... on your existing PC. Google Chrome, Chromium, Firefox, Thunderbird & Opera (Linux versions) all operate as always. Other common error: USB storage (espec. flash drives) has hardware errors. More details needed here: one of my HP notebooks has two HDDs - yours too? The external drive - what kind: flash, optical FDD, HDD, USB-powered HDD, ... ? Retired Chief Information Officer (1984), Australian Capital Territory
