Reg scanners should be given a wide birth, they will always find something wrong and usually when you run the fix, you end up with more problems.
You should only hack your registry if you REALLY know what you are doing.
If you are having problems? why not start a new post and get some help.

I like to think of the CPU as the heart of my machine, and the Registry as the brain. The Registry is a relatively small list of vital instructions and any mistakes there are liable to render your machine unusable. Even though you may have hundreds or even thousands of stray entries, Windows will still run fine and all the ads saying that you will get vast improvements in performance by using their product are largely so much bull.
Some people swear by the use of 'registry cleaners', but those that should know advise staying well clear of them. I know who I prefer to take notice of.
If you have a problem that requires editing the registry then that is a different story, but you do need to know exactly what you are doing if you are going to stay out of trouble.

A registry cleaner will not increase your system's speed or performance, and has the potential to break your registry to the point that your PC is no longer bootable. We strongly advise that people stay away from any of the registry cleaners out there. Go HERE to get more information about why registry cleaners aren't needed.
Thanks to Sari for the explanation

With that said, There will be times when the registry needs to be "adjusted" due to certain problems. When it does we will make sure that you have a full registry backup before proceeding. We recommend Erunt.
If you are having some problems, please post and we will try to help.

+ "Adobe ARM"

When done restart computer and then:
Download TFC by OldTimer to your desktop
- Please double-click TFC.exe to run it. (Note: If you are running on Vista, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator).
- It will close all programs when run, so make sure you have saved all your work before you begin.
- Click the Start button to begin the process. Depending on how often you clean temp files, execution time should be anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or two. Let it run uninterrupted to completion.
- Once it's finished it should reboot your machine. If it does not, please manually reboot the machine yourself to ensure a complete clean.
Download Auslogics Defrag from the link in my signature below. Auslogics Defrag in my opinion is better because:
It does a more comprehensive job at Defragging
It will actually show you what it is doing
At the end of working it will show you how much speed you picked up
You can view a online log of the files that Auslogics defragged
Let me know how system is running when done with all steps

I have a question about temp files. The multiple defrags have turned up a couple of extremely large temp files including one that is nearly 1GB. Is it safe to delete all temp files?
Posted 14 June 2010 - 01:25 PM
Where exactly is the temp file you mentioned located?

If so then delete it and let us know how it works then.

Being a temp file it should have no affect on the program.
