GEEK TIP : We must emphasize that reinstalling Windows will be a very time-consuming and advanced task to resolve credits.txt problems. To avoid data loss, you must be sure that you have backed-up all of your important documents, pictures, software installers, and other personal data before beginning the process. If you are not currently backing up your data, you need to do so immediately.

Download credits.txt Files (Malware-Tested 100% Clean)

CAUTION : We strongly advise against downloading and copying credits.txt to your appropriate Windows system directory. PortableApps typically does not release Portable TXT files for download because they are bundled together inside of a software installer. The installer's task is to ensure that all correct verifications have been made before installing and placing credits.txt and all other TXT files for Portable. An incorrectly installed TXT file may create system instability and could cause your program or operating system to stop functioning altogether. Proceed with caution.
