I don't recommend any reg cleaner as they can do more harm than good.
Please post back if we found the solution

Because of the potential problems, Bleeping Computer does not recommend the use, of registry cleaners.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)


A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)


"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world." Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

...or you can just defrag with the utility provided in Windows. It's a bit slow but does the job.

I dont use Reg cleaners either. I've tried Diskeeper Lite, was better than the built in. But IIRC Its no longer available from the makers. I run the full version, which can be set on auto mode and has some advanced options. :thumbsup: but paid.
