How to use the Registry Cleaning scan

The Registry Cleaning scan will detect outdated Registry entries and app data that can be removed to help keep your Windows Registry clean and efficient. 

Start the Registry Cleaning scan:

1. From the Home screen of Digital Care AntiVirus Complete, click the Performance tab. 
2. Click on the Registry Cleaning category.
3. Click on Start Scan to initiate a scan on this category.

Once the scan is complete you can review the results then fix the items detected. If you wish to remove a detected item, follow the steps below to add it to the Ignore List. 

Add an item to the Ignore List: 

After a scan you can add detected items to the Ignore list so that Digital Care does not fix the item and will ignore it either for only the current scan, or for both the current and future scans. You will need to do this when the results are displayed.

  • To remove an item from the current scan and not any future scans, you may simply remove the checkmark for that item. Please keep in mind, the item will re-appear in future scans.
  • To remove an item permanently, click Ignore located at the end of the item entry to add it to the Ignore List and ensure it is not detected/removed in any future scans. 

In the Registry Clean Settings page you can remove the item from the Ignore List to be once again available to be scanned and detected in future scans. Click here to learn more
