I downloaded a registry cleaner thinking it was freeware and it was only a trial version that onlt cleaned twenty files. Itried to uninstall it and it left two .dll extension files and another that has the description: Registry Cleaner by www.registryoptimizer.com. The cleaner is by stuffit I think. Any ideas on how to remove the files? Also, any ideas on the best way to clean my registry free?

if you removed the program properly in add/remove control panel, you can simply delete the files.

Arguably, registry cleaners have little value. I don't use one.

you could try deleting the files from the registry itself. goto the run option, usually if you click start it will bring this up on your computer, then run regedit. this should open your registry. look under hkey, local machine, software, look for the name of the company it came from, delete this file. please note, that i do not recommend editing the registry yourself unless you know what the names of all the files mean and which directory you go to. I have tried a few registry editors on line myself, and a pretty decent one was registryfix at registryfix.com, but it will only delete 52 files without buying it, so you can try it if you want to. in the mean time, ive learned alot about computers trying to edit it myself, so please, be very careful, and make sure you back up the registry if you are going to take anything out, just incase you make an error. Hope this helps
