    When i run 'Reg Cleaner' on XP, There are loads of "Creative Tech" entries.

    These are there because i installed some creative software to enable 5.1 surround, but i got rid of it. And i am using the windows XP sound driver for it now

    The entries are there as following:

    Creative Tech: Creative installer
    Creative Tech: Devcon
    Creative Tech: Driver Default
    Creative Tech:Instalation
    Creative Tech: Licence
    Creative Tech: Mixer name
    Creative Tech: Product registration
    Creative Tech:Reboot
    Creative Tech:share
    Creative Tech:softwareinsatlled
    Creative Tech: wdm install
    Creative Tech:audioHQ
    Creative Tech:creative launcher
    Creative Tech:multi user
    Creative Tech:task in update tray

    Is it OK, to get rid of all these entries?? windows isnt using them is it??

    im using windows XP

    I'd export everything you want to delete first in case you accutally need one of those things. Then it's up to you if you want to delete things out of your registry. Best rule of thumb is, if it ain't broke don't fix it. In other words, if you're not having any regisitry issue type problems, leave well enough alone. All that said, lol, it 'should' be ok to give em the axe.

    I couldn't tell you. Whenever I advice about registry stuff it's with a stiff warning. There's too damn much stuff in there and I really don't understand enough go give a definitive yes or no. My guess is you'll be ok to whack the whole shootin' match, I would. But see ^^^ lol, i covered my hiney. :D
