    Hi all you TechAngels....I have a question about RegSeeker. After reading the threads on this site about registry cleaners, RegSeeker comes up really well along with JV16 tools.
    So I have downloaded RegSeeker to see about the rubbish in my registry (as I haven't cleaned it since I first installed windows95, and after upgrades, I am now running windowsXP Pro) I installed it and ran it to clean the registry, to see what it could find....it found nearly 1000 entries!!! Some had green entries beside them and some had red. The thing is.....What do I do????
    Do I delete them all in one go, or delete only the red ones, or delete only the green ones or do I have to go through the listing one by one, deciding as I go? Having found that many entries, WOW it boggled my brain somewhat, any advice would be great.

    I am beginning to wonder if all that clutter in the registry is why my system is a bit sluggish.

    Please, please, please advise.......;)
    ..................................................
    Wishing Bubble Wishes you all a stress free day!!!

    Make a backup of the registry. Make sure System Restore is working just in case. Delete only the green ones and you should be ok. With the System Restore feature or the Registry backup you should easily be able to recover if you need to. Keep the registry backup fo a month or two.
