Hi all.

Season's Greetings to you all!

I've got 6 registry problems that I can't fix. I've tried Registry Mechanic, RegistryFix, RegCure, Spybot Search & Destroy, I've run CHKDSK, ESET Nod32, Winsockfix, SuperantSpyware, Malwarebyte-antiMalware...

Nothing removes these 6 problems.

I'd appreciate any help with this.

Thank you.

Unfortunately malware writers can put things into registry keys that windows cant read properly so it cant delete them. Have you tried deleting them manually with regedit.

MOD EDIT: Before messing around inside the registry it's STRONGLY advised that you backup your registry. Post back if you need instructions for this.

this could also have some relation with your problem

Also, you might want to note that registry cleaners are not necessary. Cleaning your registry will not result in noticeable speed improvements and should only be done if you are receiving errors. You should ALWAYS BACK UP your registry before making any changes to it.
