can anyone recommend a registry cleaner that is freeware or a trial version that is not just a scam to get you to buy the thing--I.E. one that actually works in the trial version rather than just removing a few entries and trying to get you to buy the program. any suggestions would be appreciated. thanks in advance---jayb

O>K> status report---ran the scans--found no problem entries-----just deleted stuff--old shortcuts to programs and stuff that had been removed already--didn't find anything that would cause problems if removed from registry----created restore point and backed up registry before running the programs anyway-----cleaned out the junk entries and no problems-----thanks for the assist guys--much appreciated----------jayb
