Hi guys:

Saw the ad for Uniblue Registry Booster for Win 7 and ran a scan...

Computer is only a few months old and how is it possible to have 1130 system errors and (a more understandable) 80 user.errors?

Is this a bunch of bunk or real problems or something I should leave alone.

Appreciate your input.

Uniblue is just like a "Hoax".
Dont ever use a registry cleaner as it can delete some important registry keys which can make your system unbootable

So-called Registry errors, are normal and after the amount gets to a certain level, they are removed by Windows from time to time.

In order to safely use one of these programs you would have to have a very good knowledge of the Windows Registry, have good and working backups available, time to fix your computer in case there was a problem......etc.

The Registry cleaners or optimizing programs, though they make backups, can cause a host of problems and we do not support their use. The ads that you see while at TechGuy site, are put there and the site owner does as best he can to keep the worst ones out....but he does not have the luxury of total control of what ads do show up.


If you saw the ad you mentioned at a different site the issue is probably much the same as here.

Here, members who donate a minimum amount, I believe it is $20, get NO ads on this site.

I love ads.... ; -)

Seems hypocritical that TSG will host ads for registry cleaners/tune up utilities on this site, when we all know what damage they can do, job security for all of us I guess.

Thanks, guys. Got it! No registry cleaners. I guess I've been lucky up to this point... .

So how is the best way to uninstall programs, so little bits and pieces left behind are at a minimum? Or is that necessary?

For Removing Programs try,
Revo Uninstaller
The above link is a hotlink
If this dosent work,
Go to Revouninstaller.com and then download the free version


As for the little piece of information left behind,they Slow Down the System and Fragment the Hard Disk.
i.e. Have a Great Negetive Performance Impact on the System

Thanks, antech.

So, if I understand you correctly, your opinion is that if I use Revo Installer it will eliminate those little left overs that slow things down?

Anyone else have any other pro or cons to this program or others to recommend?

RevoUninstaller searches for leftover Registry entries pertaining to the program you are removing, and has 4 levels of removal available. I like RevoUninstaller, many of us use it.
