PC REVIVER identified 23GB of previous installation files to get rid of. It will not show me what files it is going to mess with. I am scared to run the fix.

I need to be assured that running the Disk cleanup and having PC Reviver "fix" (or remove?) 23GB of files, won't screw up my computer. I have run it in the past and it messed up my Microsoft Outlook email program. So I don't know if I should run it or not. What do I do if it messes up my Microsoft Outlook program again?

Hi Tom,

Its always better to create a restore point while updating your system.
PC Reviver conveniently creates a System Restore point on your computer, before any repairs, optimization or changes are carried out.
A system restore point enables you to undo recent changes and restore your computer to a previous date and time. This is especially helpful when recent changes or repairs have an undesired effect on your computer and you wish to roll back all changes.
The Create System Restore Point Before Optimizing option is available under the Settings area of PC Reviver and is enabled by default. You can turn it on or off by clicking the switch.

I hope this helps.

Hi Tom,

Thank you for posting your concern's here.

I'd like you to know that you could safely clean those detected items by PCReviver, if you're hesitant in doing so, you can simply set PCReviver's settings to back-up those files by creating a restore point.

If you would like to create a restore point, please follow the steps given below.

1. Please select the cog icon of your PCReviver which is the settings, Cog icon is near minimize and exit button.

2. Under settings, please check/select Create System Restore Point Before Optimizing.

3. Once you have checked it, please proceed by clicking Save button.

4. You can now go back to PCReviver's Home tab and run the scan.

You may also create and use the Windows restore point option just to be sure if things would get messy, please see link given below.


If you have any other questions, please let me know.

I kept getting the blue screen with Driver Power State Failure error message and then my computer would restart. I found your product and it did not happen any more. I just purchased an anti-virus (kaspersky) and now it is doing it again. It is so frustrating. My computer is only 6 months old. It is a Asus desktop.
