    Hi anyone know if there is such a program as all the ones I have tried are all trail versions with restrictions!!! Also when I boot up my PC and get to the sign in page to access my desktop my Number Lock button is always on and I have to turn it off to type in my password is there anyway to stop this as it has only started doing it recently? Cheers in advance!!

    My recommendation is as follows:

    Don't fix stuff that ain't broke!

    Unless you have a SPECIFIC issue, it's not wise to turn a "registry fixing" application loose.

    Sorry, but that is just not good advice.

    It's bad enough recommending one that "works for me all the time" (but may muck up your box), but to recommend a "fly by night" one!

    They all want to screw you for $29 to fix non-existent "problems" that you could fix yourself anyway if indeed they were real problems (who cares if ".XYZ" is an unknown file extension that can't be opened by any program, if you don't have any ".XYZ" files)? Better to leave the registry alone.

    If you still want to fix your registry problem which perhaps doesn't exist you'll certainly find something here.

    There are plenty of free ways to break your computer. :) Just do a Google.

    They really do no good and can render your system useless.

    Then you'll be interested to know that they have another great program there to be downloaded. A Memory Manager with an approval rating of 86%. And, it can Defrag ram which, since this is an architecturally impossibility, makes this program stand out even more.

    Not!

    Always back up all the important stuff you want to keep. Should do that anyway. I use CCleaner to clean up and reg cleaner. I also use one I have had since Windows 98. I came across another one that "says" is pretty safe called Easyclean. You have an option to back up reg. I do it every time, but never had to go back to an older one. The two I named is free. Google will find them for you.
