    I'm sure this has been covered but... I'm using Norton System Works 2002 and am curious if I still need to get a program to clean the registry of defunct entries. I know that Norton use to include a reg cleaner but I'm not seeing it now. If a regclean program is needed any suggestions on one. I'm using XP Home...


    One other quick question, any ideas what -

    "PowerReg SchedulerV2.exe is?"

    It is in my startup, and I'm trying to figure out if I need it or not

    Thanks in advance:)

    Norton Systemworks 2002 has a registry cleaner ... its called Norton WinDoctor, and it works really well for cleaning up obsolete ActiveX/COM entires in the registry.

    If you want to use another one along with WinDoctor, you can try jv16 Powertools available at http://www.jv16.org

    I'm a real big Symantec fan, but Win Doctor is a weak registry cleaner.

    Before you use regcleaner or any other similar utility, be sure to back up your registry or create a restore point. Most of those programs are not as efficient as they should be when it comes to discriminating between items that can be deleted safely or not.

    Always make sure you make a backup of what you remove reghealer does that as you clean and the reg compressor is just that it recompresses the reg and also has a make complete back up and easy restore feature ..... have used both for a long time and never had a reg based problem because of either of these two programs

    I use dealer's choice: RegCleaner by some guy. Seems to work well.

    I love this regcleaner...plus, no backup needed, the info is defaulted into the recycle bin...which is a backup.

    still, doing a restore point couldn't hurt, and is probaably prudent, I always have a valid restore point, so I don't bother with a new one when I reg clean
