So i don't know too much about registry, beisdes don't ever ever delete stuff from it becuase it coul be important [unless of course you know what you are doing]…

 

this has now caused a great problem for me:

I have just installed the Advanced System Care 4 Pro and had done a Deep scan on my system, one of which included registry scan too. It found 2571 Problem, but I am really confused as to what to do next. An inner feeling is pushing me ot fix them, but i decided that if someone on dottech has time on their hands and are skilled with registry, if they could help me. I have saved a report of hte registry errors the program found and here is the link. It is through megaupload and 100% safe- only a .txt file.

the Password is dottechrules

thank you dottechies!!

If your computer is running fast and you don't seem to have any issues with apps bugging out, then I'd say cleaning would be a bad idea. In general, you should only registry clean IF you have a problem, IF you have a backup of the registry, and IF you trust the program you're using. I only ever use CCleaner to do my registry cleaning business, and I haven't really done any in quite a while–since I reinstalled Windows 6 months ago.

Have you registry cleaned with ASC4P before? If you haven't, I'd Google to see what others think:

Doing just a quick search, it seems that Cnet loved it:

However, in the comments things get a little bit worse:

http://download.cnet.com/Advanced-SystemCare-Free/9241-2086_4-11889864.html?messageID=10661436

However, it does get a 3.5/5 stars, and that was the only “it messed up my computer” I could find. The only other negative reviews I could find simply disliked the nags for the upgrade (which you already have).

Whether or not you clean is ultimately your choice, so good luck.. I guess. Smile

Oh, the site that was :(

thanks locutus!

hmm.. i gave it some thought nad decided to leave it alone even though i can easily back up my registry nad what not… i figure as long my computer is running happily, there won't be harm with a bunch of extra registry files…

But can i get your opinion on a registry defrag.. or is this sorta risky

just curoius , can't get enough of all this tech!!!! ;)

Bottomline: Be careful….lol. But CCleaner registry cleaning is fine from my experiences, and STAY AWAY from registry defragmenters!! Boy, that brings back bad memories…
