Been running BT Net Protect Plus since day one and had no issues with it. About a month or so ago version 12.8 downloaded with radically changes the front end (you will know when you have got it).
Anyway I ran the Quick Clean (as I regularly do) and it found a lot more items in the registry than it has done before. So after a quick review I saw it wanted to remove keys from belonging to long since uninstalled software so I let it run.
Though my PC still worked after some of the installed software took exception to it! So if you run any of the following make sure you do not tick the Registry option in the settings of Quick Clean:
By the way I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.

My advice and that of others on the forum would be to uninstall BTNetprotect. It can cause problems on some computers and is a resource hog. There are far better free antivirus programs available such as Avast Free, AVG Free.
If you do want to uninstall BTNetprotect use this guide and make sure you use the BTNetprotect/McAfee removal tool after you have restarted your computer.
If you want a trouble free registry and temporary files cleaner one of the best which always gets great reviews is CCleaner

I agrreee with the above: Avast and ccleaner.
I have found ccleaner cleans more files than I want it to by default; for example lots of Internet history I want to keep. Even if you don't look at the 'Applications' tab, it still cleans everything referenced there when you 'Run Ccleaner'. Once you've set it the way you wqant it remembers your settings.
