It's my understanding that there are many many programs out there designed to modify, clean, and repair windows registry.

I can't help but wonder if there is any wisdom in putting trust into such a program... If one can be trusted. After all, the registry is a very powerful tool.

I'd appreciate some insight by the connaiseurs.

Download and run CCleaner from here

http://www.filehippo...nload_ccleaner/

After you run the cleaner, click issues then scan for issues, not the number of issues, close CCleaner without removing anything

Download TuneUp 2006 here

http:www.tune-up.com

Click clean up, registry clean up, note the number of items it will clean, close tune up without removing anything, compare the number to CCleaner

Both programmes have the option to make a back up before removing anything, which is the most important thing when working with the registry

If you have heaps of errors / issues, post screenshots so someone can say whether they are major erros
