Looks like a quiet morning on the forum, so perhaps another curiosity question in the making?.

When fixed - is it really fixed?. Or to put it another way, how is it likely to be fixed?.

I have programmes on my computer's that at times, tend to find a fault in the registry, and a usual quick fix (supposedly) is to click on the 'fix' button on the programmes, with the end result, the problem was (supposedly) removed and 'fixed'.

Yet what actually happens (the curiosity part), because on a number of occasions the 'issue' returns with the request of a 'fix' for perhaps the same 'problem'. CCleaner seems to suffer from this on occasions!.

It just removes redundant registry. The registry keeps changing when running,uninstalling and installing programs and redundant registry keys are produced.

Yes but what happens when the same redundant registry keys keep appearing, after being fixed or removed?.

Take the example of the CCleaner issue. The item is 'fixed' or supposedly removed, yet reappears shortly afterwards. Doing something like a Google search might bring a number of possible 'fixes', and at the same time states -Best ignored, its a false/positive?.
