After I installed Registry Reviver, it found many problems which it said it fixed all. Each time it was used after that, it always had 50 give or take a few, empty register keys. Which it said it "fixed". If these are empty every single time, why doesn't the program remove them? I just now did a scan,(it also autmoatically scans every time I boot up) and it shows 33 empty registry keys and shows 33 fixed.

Easy solution: uninstall it. You don't need it. Registry Cleaners cause more problems than they solve.

The question is if your system is having any issues due to it.
Slowing down
Freezing
Programs not working
Associations not working

Yes, it is freezing several times, I'm not able to open programs, after the computer has sat for awhile either. And the computer can't find files to open the program. Do you also think I should uninstall Registry Reviver?

Yep as stated before from our experience registry cleaners tend to cause more problems then they are worth.
Lets take a look and see what we can find.
  • Please download the Event Viewer Tool by Vino Rosso VEW and save it to your Desktop:
  • Double-click VEW.exe
  • Under 'Select log to query', select (as appropriate):
    • Application
    • System
  • Under 'Select type to list', select (as appropriate):
    • Error
Then use the 'Date of events' or 'Number of events' as follows:

Either:
  • Click the radio button for 'Number of events'
    Type 6 in the 1 to 20 box (or any number from 1 to 20)
    Then click the Run button.
    Notepad will open with the output log.

  • Click the radio button for 'Date of events'
    In the From: boxes type today's date (presuming the crash happened today) 13 07 2009
    In the To: boxes type today's date (presuming the crash happened today) 13 07 2009
    Then click the Run button.
    Notepad will open with the output log.
Please post the Output log in your next reply

First try this and see if it helps.
Go to

Start and then to Run
Type in Chkdsk /r Note the space between k and /
Click Enter ...It will probably ask if you want to do this on the next reboot...click Y
If the window doesn't shutdown on its own then reboot the system manually. On reboot the system will start the chkdsk operation
This one will take longer then chkdsk /f

Note... there are 5 stages...
It may appear to hang at a certain percent for a hour or more or even back up and go over the same area...this is normal...
DO NOT SHUT YOUR COMPUTER DOWN WHILE CHKDSK IS RUNNING OR YOU CAN HAVE SEVERE PROBLEMS
This can take several hours to complete.
When completed it will boot the system back into windows.

Let me know if this fixes the problem


Then to let you know this file TfSysMon is showing up in your Event log and has been know to be part of a infections.
