CCleaner is a fairly gentle, easy-to-use utility. It gets rid of junk that builds up, and its registry cleaner doesn't usually zap anything you don't want zapped. Some of the other ones you really have to watch out for. One of them messed up my Bluetooth install in Vista beyond fixing. Only a reinstall of Windows fixed the deletion of that key; not System Restore, not undoing the cleaning, not uninstalling and reinstalling the Bluetooth stack; nothing else. So you have to be careful. You might want to go through your Windows Update history as well, and Google the updates it installed along with the query about the DWM error. Microsoft is unlikely to level with you, but you might find a chat group that has identified this issue, and will clue you in as to which update did it, so you can block that particular update until MS releases an update for that issue which doesn't mess up your system.
You don't want to be labeled as a spammer? Boo hoo. I do not, absolutely, ever subscribe to any kind of automated mailing list. Never have, never will. And yet I get many, many emails from lists I've never subscribed to. And I will cheerfully label them as spam, and if they particularly annoy me, I'll report them to Spamcop to.
