I understand this is very dangerous, but I have been in there before to clear up some ones about a game I use to play, but I forgot how to get to them and I'd like to see if there are any registries to any games left.

Also, would clearing the keys make any more space available on the computer?

If you are looking for keys for a given program/game, the best bet would be to use the Edit/Find function in Regedit to find keywords.

Just make sure that you start at the beginning of the registry and press Next after coming across/deleting any item you are looking for.

When you are finished, there will be a message indicating that there are no more items for that search data value.

To defrag the registry:

RegDefrag

To clean out dead links:

CCleaner

When you use the Registry tool in CCleaner, after you scan for issues
and click Fix Selected Issues it will ask if you want to make a backup. Check
Yes. It puts the stuff it cleaned out in your Documents folder with a .reg
extention. If anything acts weird after cleaning just double-click that file
to put things back how they were.

Also there's a freebie ERUNT that makes a backup of the registry without doing a whole restore point:
ERUNT

Before manually editing the registry it's a good safeguard to backup with that.

I can remember when I first started programming in Assembler all the articles
and books warned that if I made a mistake there could be ** !!! dire consequences !!! **

The dire consequences usually meant I had to power off my machine, wait 10 seconds, then switch it back on!!
OOooooooooo Scary!!!! It's good to be cautious but if you never do anything you never learn
anything either. :thumbsup:
