Hi, Just a quickie, does anybody out there know of a (hopefully free) utility that will compress/defrag the win98 registry? A good friend of mine introduced me to a prog named 'RegCompact' but it developed the nasty habit of taking out half the registry at inopportune moments....nice! All suggestions gratefully received.SS.
Thanks for that link, I already use JV reg cleaner but the power tools does not contain a compressor/defragger neither is there anything similar on that page, as usual seems that I`m searching for rocking horse pooh! I did d/load the windows registry guide though, nice bit of light reading for later on, thanks again.SS.
Thanks RJay I went to download.com found one I`ve had my eye on for a while 'Advanced Registry Optimiser' unfortunately it`s about $40 I think I`ll be forced to leave it at that price, unless, nudge, nudge....Ellas you really got my hopes up but when I hit the link I found myself staring at the little monster that had chewed my registry up in the first place. Bin doing a bit of readin` apparently Windows fills in all the registry gaps when they exceed 500k so maybe I`m being a little bit anal....still like to find one though.Big Thanks again, ss.
I am truly grateful for your time and effort and without a hint of anything other than curiosity, when I followed the PC World link I found myself yet again looking at the little swine that chewed my registry in the first place. I did mention it in my original post. What I am learning via this thread is that other than the nasty little munching thing known as RegCompact there is precious little out there that does this job, as I said before maybe as Windows does some kind of compacting internally I would be better leaving well alone. Thaks again IZZY for taking the time out though.SS.
Yeah what is going on today with these un-links, I actually got there (PC World) via Google myself, can`t seem to get out of the house today...in a blue line kinda way, perhaps it`s the government trying to stop us sharing information now we`re in a state of war......think I`ll move to France or Russia, God I`m depressed.SS.
