    It was very simple. Don't forget that the CCleaner can do this for yourself !

    A simple method to use :
    Tools >> Start-up
    Next step is to disable all CCleaner tasks of their boxes (Windows, Scheduled Tasks, Context Menu).

    Correct. It's only available starting with Windows 10 build 17713.

    Many Thanks for another helpful tutorial, Brink! I don't know how I would cope with Win10 without this forum.

    Minor question - Why does the Enable....reg file have lines for both HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ , while the Disable.....reg only adds the DWORD to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ ?

    You're most welcome.

    HKCU is not needed in the Disable .reg when HKLM is set to be disabled since it would override HKCU (if there).

    The Enable .reg just deletes both the HKCU and HKLM.
