I use TuneUp Utilities 2004. 30 day trial click here

Norton utilities is also good.

thanks for the advice dan the confused but i need a free program.
so where do i get norton utilities from and will it do all i want??

Ok, try:

XP or 2000: RegScrubXP click here

Others: EasyCleaner click here

Norton Utilities isn't free I'm afraid.

click here Ccleaner and regseeker at click here are two free ones...they are all you will ever need. Delete ALL that they find.

I downloaded and ran CCleaner. It's identified a load of rubbish on my PC.

Can I really delete the lot, even though I haven't a clue what most of it is??

thanks for the advice guys but i need one that sorts out (unused dll's obsolete registry settings temp files and other useless stuff) all in one program

Bit long in the tooth (circa 2000) but works fine with W2K. You can always restore the dll from the archive if necessary.

Which is exactly what CCleaner does. I've used it! Have you??

CCleaner doe's a very good job, but remember, you may need to make some adjustments afterwards.

any decent registry cleaner will let you make a back up of the registry before you delete anything that it finds.Ccleaner does just that and you can restore from the backup easily if you wish.
