I recently downloaded "regcleaner" and have eliminated many many old software names that I recognized as old deleted programs I used to have. My question is, now that I have narrowed down the registry list to aprox. 300 entries, see attached. Is there another little program to download that will let me know what programs of the 300 are still on my computer, so that I can delete the others? I sure hope so, because I suspect these extras are slowing down my computer. Thanks for any help.

In general, having programs installed is not going to affect performance.
Running them, obviously will.

In your file there is at least one piece of SpyWare, WildTangent.

I would download and run SpyBot and see if it finds anything else.

Then, download and run StartupList

Copy/paste, back here in another post, the contents of the file that it creates.

And I sure wouldn't want any of that "Backweb" stuff on my
PC. So, unless you actually like all that auto background stuff,
auto updating, etc., I'd think about dumping it too. I just used
"regedit" on a friends computer to "Find" all the backweb entries
and to delete and it puts its tenicles throughout the registry. Kodak gave it to him.
