Not sure if this is the correct forum but does the Windows Live One Care Scanner repair / replace any damaged registry files as part of its work.

I use it approx 3-4 times a year and remember seeing something on it finishing about repairing something or other. The reason I ask is that I think I may have inadvertantly deleted / damaged some registry items while getting rid of a corrupt installation of the latest Comodo Firewall Pro.

I am not completely sure about this as since opening a new account and moving all my files etc over to it my PC is working very well again today but I think that my old account has become corrupt and so will be deleting it just as soon as I am sure this new one is stable. I just wondered if the live care scanner could somehow save me the trouble of a repair from the installation disc if it became neccessary.

The scanner at http://safety.live.com will repair some registry entries if you tell it to.

This is by no means a cure for your issues - and the use of registry cleaners is discouraged here because of the number of issues that they cause.

Thanks for the reply John. Hopefully it has only damaged my old account. This new account has been stable for two days now and my daughters account is also stable so perhaps i've been lucky and won't need it. I don't like messing with registry cleaners either.
