    I am running a 32 bit OEM version of Windows Vista Home Premium on a 1.8 GHz duo-core Dell desktop with 2 Gb ram. One of the system utilities I use semi-regularly is Easy Cleaner by Toni-Arts: http://personal.inet.fi/business/toniarts/ecleane.htm. This software was recommended by: http://www.techsupportalert.com/best_46_free_utilities.htm and has been working well until recently.

    It has always successfully deleted all the bad registry entries it found and has never flagged any entries that should not be removed. Now, however it will not remove all bad registry entries. I've run it twice just now. The first time it left 68 entries. The second time it left 64. I have attached a compressed folder containing 4 versions of a print-to-file from the first trial (try the web page version first-probably easiest to read and open) and a jpg screenshot from the second trial.

    What do I need to do to restore Easy Cleaners full functionality?

    Thank you for any help.

    Do yourself a favor and forget about Easy Cleaner. Unneeded and unnecessary.

    ToniArts EasyCleaner 2.0.6.380 does a good job of finding and getting rid of temp/junk files in Windows XP, but it's not 100% accurate in finding invalid registry entries. It'll flag some valid registry entries as invalid, so I don't recommend it for that purpose.

    It hasn't been updated since before Windows Vista was released, so I wouldn't recommend using it at all with that operating system.

    Ditto. Don't use it to clean the registry (or any other registry cleaner, either). The "errors" they find are not real. They define them as "errors" so they can "fix" them.
