    Hi everyone,

    I have been trying to clean the registry completely using various reg cleaner programs and by hand using regedit in windows. I have also compacted it using regedit under DOS. However, some website details still remain in user.dat. Can anyone explain why I still find a lot of websites when I view user.dat in wordpad (for example: Yahoo! Finance.URL), but when I search for yahoo! in regedit (to actually delete it) it can't be found? If possible, I would like to completely clean out all the URL information. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
