I downloaded a registry cleaning program from the "Fresh Download" site mentioned in this forum. When I tried it out, it found 67 invalid entries in my Win XP registry. However, in order to "clean" these, I would have had to register and pay about $20. I thought I would try out some other programs first. I then down loaded "Registry Medic" from the Snapfile site. This took a little longer to analyze the registry, but found about twice as many "invalid entries". Again, about $20 was required to clean these. Are any of these programs reliable, and if so which can be recommended?
I have use dRegseeker on many computers and have deleted EVERYTHING that it finds with no adverse effects. It stores the deleted entries in a quarantine file so that you can reverse the process if necessary....it will not be necessary.
