First I made a free scan using a downloaded program, Registry Mechanic. Then I started to delete the files it listed myself. After first exporting the files and printing off instructions for backing up the Registry. I also copied all my docs onto CD first.
I've had some success and haven't crashed it yet but the scan advised me to delete two files From the Registry which are used by my firewall. Norton PF 2003, and appear in my Start up list. (iamapp.exe and NISSERV.EXE). As far as I know these files are essential to the running of Nortons and I dare not delete them.
Does anyone know why the scan should advise this?
I'm intriged by the fact that both files are in the start up program and one of my problems is low resources. Could there be a link there?
