I use JV16 Power Tools, Quite a few useful features in there including a Reg Cleaner compatible with XP. www.jv16.org
Be warned though Reg Cleaners are like Chain Saws, They can be very useful if u know how to use them properly but if u don't u could chop ya leg off !!
Becarful with what u delete and always back up, JV16 has it's own Back Up feature in it, so the files/enties you delete go to JV16's own kinda recycle bin first. Then when your happy it's safe to delete u just empty the Back up.
MSs Reg Cleaner IS NOT compatable with XP.
That's probably the reason they pulled it...
After running Reg Cleaner certain features of XP stop working. Most notably is the camera and scanner wizard. If I remeber right everything autoplay forgot what to do each time. Restoring the Reg Cleaner backups fixed those problems.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
