    On the cleaner tab inside the Ccleaner program under windows and then under the Advanced is HOTFIX uninstallers.

    What exactly does the hotfix uninstallers do?


    Thanks in advance

    From piriform website

    "Hotfix Uninstallers - (XP only) Every time you download and run a Hotfix from Microsoft, Windows stores an uninstallation program for that Hotfix on your system."

    It LOOKS like it does NOT delete the actual hotfixes, it LOOKS like it only deletes the "uninstaller" so you will NO longer be able to uninstall the hotfix from add/remove programs.

    Not really a big deal if the hotfixes have been installed and working properly for awhile..

    This is what I found in my search so far...

    Somebody correct me if I'm wrong...
