can anyone advise on a good registry cleaner wether it be free or not

There are plenty of these, but thay can be prone to deleting (or recommending deletion of) entries that should be kept. It also depends on your o/s. If you have Win98 try click here this is as good as any.

I use Easycleaner which is a free program and it's never let me down yet, although I always make a copy of the Registry before using Easycleaner just to be on the safe side.

click here RegScrubXP

click here for old free version of JV16

click here Easycleaner. It advises you to back up the registry first, this is a good idea as it cleans rather more aggressively than Regscrub or JV16
