We really don't believe in registry cleaners because of the damage one can do when not used properly. More reasons HERE

:thumbsup:

Basically what garmanma has said is exactly true. Registry Cleaners say they speed up your computer when if actuall fact - they don't (Generally if they do, it is very very slight)

Here are some posts regarding pretty much the same as this one (Read what some other members have said:

(These links are only a few amongst many so your not the only one :flowers: )

The risks they involve, are ones the average home user shouldn't be taking so it is best if you try stay away from them :trumpet:

Also I see you have an active HijackThis log posted and by using a registry cleaner of some sort will be making changes to your system which will affetc your HJT log - you shouldn't be making changes to your system if you have an active HijackThis log posted :inlove:

Please be patient as the HJT Team are busy but don't worry, someone will get to your log :cool:

Seeing as you now have a HJT log posted, this topic is now closed.
Please do not make any other alterations to your computer unless instructed by a HJT team member
