What is the name of the program/scanner/site (don't link directly to the site here) which is telling you that you have errors?

Hi brundle thx for your reply
I ran Registry Patrol and XP Medic Both came out with similar results

If you have a specific problem with an ActiveX control there are other ways to tackle them before you pay for a registry cleaner. There are some good free products available for registry cleaning;

CCleaner (use Issues button); click here
RegScrubXP; click here
Eusing Reg Cleaner ; click here

Mechanic and ran both of them I even ran ewido which is a similar product But that Reg Patrol still said I had the problem. What the problem started with was Have played in a game site for a while and talked to my m8 on yahoo chat But now if I open yahoo chat and the gamesitye my computer freezes I am running XP pro 450Mhz 448RAM and have heaps of disc space available

Get this click here
and remove the BHOs that relate to Yahoo and your gaming site. You will need to allow them to install again after a reboot (and upon the visiting the sites in question). The tool is out of date, but still works.

Hi again Can I ask a silly question ? How do I know which BHO ( whatever they are ) to delete and which ones to reinstall???
