Thanks to my regular email from Gizmo Richards website I got this link this afternoon:click here
The link is all self explanatory and - with an Acronis backup only a few hour old - I decided to give it a go. It found over 400 "safe to modify" items.
After a couple of hours since running the program ,not only have I found no ill effects,but my OS is running as fast as it would after a fresh reinstall. Some programs which previously were very sluggish to load are popping up in no time!
It is the first time that I have really noticed an improvement after running a registry cleaner,and it is not that long since I last ran my usual cleaner.
The usual provisos apply:
It may not work for you (read some of the comments on the page linked to)
Backup before you try it.
...and please don't shout at me it if doesn't work for you....but thus far I'm well impressed!
scan completed, have not registered it yet due to lack of username.
but reviewing the scan results 129 of them did not run any fix as they related to wifi entries [wifi temp down due to change of isp no home bb at present] most of the others relate to spybot and jk defrag which i still run and some microsoft keys.
Did yours relate to these programs too?
had recent scans last 2 days with ccleaner,eusing, & ASC IOBIT PRO.
The names which I filled in for forename and surname (Vorname and Nachname) I also entered as the username. Along with the long serial key it just accepted my registration immediately.
After the scan I just let it fix the items it wanted to. Not very technical ,I know ,but with an Acronis image in the wings I knew I could wind the clock back and I was interested to see if anything stopped functioning if I gave it the freedom to do what it wanted. Thus far I have found nothing.
JKDefrag (MYDefrag) is still running OK since the scan and CCleaner,for example,when I click on the desktop icon to open it, opens before I have got the cursor down to the bottom corner to click on the run box!!
I have since tried it on the Vista laptop where it found over 1,200 issues but only wanted to actually fix about 200 so its inbuilt selectivity seems to be working.
