    Similiar to Nortons disk utility that scans the HD for errors and broken links in the registery?

    ie file destinations when installing office and the files isn't in the correct folder but the path of this folder is still stored in the registry.8)

    The absolute best registry program that I use is called Resplendent Registrar.

    Just be careful of any registry repair tool, as they can break as well as fix things. For example, according to the devs at Microsoft, you should not run any reg tools on an MCE OS and that probably goes for the Vista variants too - if you do, you will probably be re-imaging or re-installing soon after :biggrin

    I like ccleaner. It's registry cleanup bit has worked for me reliably for the last few years.

    Thanks Pete I will keep that in mind.:thumbleft

    At work, they use Nortons Disk Utility 2005, after downloading and installing updates, they run Nortons and it's surprising how many errors it picks up in the registry.8)

    Just wondering, does ccleaner have an undo button/option should they be any problems.

    Or do you just back up the files before using ccleaner?8)

    Ive used them all mate, they all have their good points. CCleaner is free, tuneup has loads of other stuff aswell, registry mechanic is simple to use and JV16 is good for doing searches eg if you removed norton, you could search the registry for norton and then get rid of them entries (handy for when you wanna use a trial again). I think all of them come with a backup option, but dont quote me on this.

    I don't do either mate! I like living on the edge! :biggrin

    As far as I know there is no undo option, and I've also never needed to back the registry up. Its has always just worked.
