can i delete the '' activex class ....'' YES!

If it's needed by any process, it will be recreated. As I said earlier, activex problems MUST be corrected as they can introduce very serious vulnerabilities.

many thanks again --electro
can i delete the '' activex class ....''
as 'iobit ' stated it was high risk

was a deep registry scan --is it ok?

August 2012
Some activex applets and elements are used for some nefarious ends. It MUST be corrected.

ANY obsolete and unused item can be suppressed safely, but nothing wrong will appen if you don't do anything.

If any diagnostic utility ever ask you to pay to upgrade to the full version in order to rapair the found problems, DON'T EVER PAY ANYTHING! That's an absolute sign that it's a rogue scanner. If you pay, it WON'T repair the "problem" as there realy was no real problem found, but instead, it may install some realy nasty things.

You can fix those without any problem. They are all related to applications that are no longer installed. It can also arise after some update when the new version no longer use some older components.

missing shared dll: Left over from an unstalled application.
unused file ext: Another left over.
invalid or empty file class: Related to the aqbove.
activex + installer issue: An uninstaller left references to itself after use.
installer ref. issue: Same as above
old start mem. key: Left over from an unsinstall
missing start up software: Same
