I've read in several forums that registry repair utilities are useless and even harmful, but my machine is doing odd things that seem related to registry problems.  Should i go ahead and run something like IObit's Advanced Care?

 

Thanks,

SteveB

Hi sblev99,

 

Would not advise to use registry cleaners.Same thing registry repair. Question is, what things are happening that you suspect it is a registry error or problem ?

 

Try from Adminstrator command prompt, in start menu right click the command prompt and select Run as Administrator, then type     sfc /scannow

Exactly as shown, can copy and paste this into command prompt.

 

Also run a disk cleanup and a virus scan.

 

Let those run, let us know if it finds anything. Post back.
