Hi there,

What problems are you having? Do you know what caused these problems (like a specific program)? A bit more information is needed.
Some "problems" listed by registry cleaners are just simple leftovers from uninstalled programs etcetera and if there is nothing noticeable performance-wise I would really recommend leaving it alone.

I do know about registry mechanic and what it does, what I am saying is basically not to fix what isn't broken. Registry "problems" that are caught by these programs are usually empty items such as leftovers from a un-installed program (missing references etc..), they help to maintain your registry and are a good maintenance tool to have but unless your getting bad errors (like BSOD) it is good to just leave it be as it is simple to mess up . What the game did to you I cannot say, it looks harmless and the only reason I can think of why it could have given you performance issues (like your computer freezing when playing) is if your computer didn't meet the games requirements.

What I need to know to even try and help is what problems you are having. Give me a description, tell me the error you get, tell me what registry mechanic tells you. Without knowing this its impossible to help.

Thanks,

Mike

First off, I KNOW what registry mechanic does, since I have used it myself, I also KNOW the types of "problems" it finds which usually aren't really problems just leftovers like I have said.
BSOD means blue screen of death which is something you don't want to be getting.
Now if I understand what your problem is, your computer is running slow and freezing? What are your computer specs?

http://users.telenet...uter.html<br />

Go through this article by miekiemoes and see if it helps speed up your computer.

to speed up start up.. go to start > run type msconfig in the box that appears. Click on the startup tab

Please try and provide some information since there can be thousands of reasons why your computer is slow, uncheck every item a few items at a time if you are not sure what you can disable (Google will help you with this). Unchecking them will not delete them so if you find its necessary to have then just re-check the item.

Good luck,

Mike

1)windows XP
2)Intel ®
3)Pentium® 4 CPU 3.00GHz
4)512 MB RAM
i have only one antivirus NOD3.2 which i can't update and basically don't work when i am going to update it it gives me error
^downloaded file is damaged^ .
when i want to unistall programs i go to control panel and i delete the leftovers files from ^program files^.
i have unistall the unwanted files.
i have Defragment all of my drivers.

if i have done them right as the site you show me tells and it works i will tell you otherwise i will wait new message.

Thats great to hear!

i have only one antivirus NOD32 which i can't update and basically don't work when i am going to update it it gives me error


This isn't though, without updating your antivirus it's only a matter of time before you get infected, uninstall NOD32 and reinstall it that should replace any corrupt files.

tell you that sometimes (one time in two months) i get this BSOD


This could mean that your hardware is failing, something that is beyond my knowledge and that one of the Techs here would be much more adept to dealing with this.

Good luck,

Mike
