Any ideas for some good registry cleaning software.

I have some refernces on my XP pro system to an old netgear FA310 network card which is not allowing me to install NTL broadband using the ethernit option

If you don`t know how to sort out your registry I would use a programme like you suggest with great caution. Whatever you do make a backup and a copy of your current registry.I don`t know if "Reg Clean" might help you, but its as good as anything, and its free

I use 'ashampoo' that I got as freeware. Seems to do the trick. Not sure whether this fully answers all of the question, though?

click here for a selection of freeware registry tools, the best are JV16 Powertools & RegscrubXP.

I tried all the above programs

Yje adequately get rid of the entries to the FA310 NIC but Outlook Express stops working

I understand that I might have to get hold of the old card and install it in the machine and then through device manager uninstall the drivers

Thanks all

Any other ideas welcome

Try Going Start/All Programs/Accessories and choose Command Promp.

At the Prompt type in

ipconfig /release

and hit Enter

Type in

ipconfig /flushdns

and hit enter

Type in

ipconfig /renew

and hit enter

It may well solve your problem.
