Hi Tony,


I use this one and here are the directions:
  • Please dowload: RegSeeker.
  • Click on "Clean The Registry" in the left panel.
  • Check all boxes (make sure the backup box in the lower left corner is selected!).
  • After it runs, click "Select All" on the bottom, then right-click on any selected item in the window and select "Delete Selected Items".
  • Click "Quit RegSeeker".
Now, open any of your installed programs, and make sure that everything opens ok. If so, reboot, then go back and run the RegSeeker again, do the same thing again if anything is found. When RegSeeker finds nothing else, then it's clean!


Thanks,

:tazz:

Hey Tony,
I'm sure you could screw yourself over with ANY registry cleaner if you have corruption on your disk or some other variables fall into place. But I can recommend a couple I've used without incident. Good luck.

free:
reg healer
regclean
reg seeker

not free:
Iolo's Mechanic

To be honest the Iolo's Machanic is the one that I used to use and that is why I am iffy on things like that now.

Microsoft RegClean is very dangerous to use since it has not been updated in years and breaks Microsoft Office among other applications. I don't know why it is still being hosted for download or recommended anywhere.
