    tools -> registery clean up ->

    there are three options which do diferent thigns

    OLE Cleaner
    Cleans unused and invalid Object Linking and Embedding entries.

    Orphan File Reference Finder
    Cleans registry entries that point to a non-existing file.

    Automatic Registry Cleaner
    Cleans what ever is possible to clean automatically.
    NOTE: This can't detect as many obsolete entries as the human eye can by manually checking all of RegCleaner's sections, but on the other hand, this might find some things you can't.

    and

    Do Them All

    Only bad thing is if you got NAV 2002 and you delete the reg files a script error appears. In other words the scheduler won't work anymore.
