Registry Compressor/Defragger?

  Karma_Train 12:51 13 Mar 2003

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.

click here for a page full of registry tools. JV16 is the best to use and the windows registry guide makes usefull reading.

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.

Have a look at click here look in utilities section, there's definitely defraggers there,not sure about compressors though.

Thanks RJay I went to 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.

Sorry Songsmith...These links are not working today.

However ReCompact is available on PCWorld Download

click here

Sorry mate...that's no good either. What's wrong with links today? Tell you what. Go to Google and do a search for Regcompact. You'll get it at PCWorld page. Honestly.

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 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.
