906 errors found !

  Creditman 21:24 25 May 2005

I installed RegClean from PC OnPoint & ran the scan. It found 906 errors - mainly in Registry. I cannot beleive these are serious faults, but is it safe to allow the programme to repair them ? Anyone any experience of this or similar ? Thanks

Hi, I also use a program called RegClean regularly and let it fix faults. Never had any problems with mine, but I don't know if it is the same RegClean that you have. I think there are several such programs all similarly named.

ps - the icon for my RegClean looks like a Red/Blue Rubik Cube.

if it is the first time you have run a registry scan it it quite feasible you have this many dead items in the registry.Do a independant check with this click here

This is the RegClean which I use - I thoroughly recommend it.

I us e a similar programme (regseeker) and find at least 400 errors on most new computers that I have just set up.

Thanks guys for the advice. Just 1 question , when it says "select items to repair", how is one supposed to know which ought or ought not to be done ? Or is it OK to select all ?

You back up your Registry.

You look at the list and that you only remove any items that you can identify as being to do with previously removed items.

You reboot the PC and if all was well, you wait until next week.

In a week's time, you once again back up the Registry and run the Scan once again. This time removing another small group of entries.

While this method might prove a trifle long winded, it will make recovery easier in the event of one of the entries being important.

The RegClean which I use automatically makes an 'undo' file which you can revert to if necessary - I have never yet found it necessary.
