What makes you think the registry is mixed up? There are lots of simpler reasons the PC could be slow, one of them being you have run out of hard drive space.
  • Check how much free space you have on your hard drive.
    Start>My Computer click once on your C: drive and look in the Details box on the left.
Do some basic maintenance as jgweed suggested:
(These instructions apply to Windows ME and XP, other versions may not have the functions described)
  • Clean your internet cache and temporary files:
    Click Start and Run then type in cleanmgr this will start the windows disk cleanup tool.
    Tick the boxes beside Temporary internet Files, Recycle Bin and Temporary Files then click OK

  • Boot in Safe Mode and do a scandisk with the 'Thorough' and 'Fix' options checked.
    If you are not sure how to boot in Safe Mode there is a tutorial here:
    Safe Mode
    How to find scandisk:
    Start>My Computer. Right click the C: drive then Properties>Tools tab, click on Check Now

  • When that's finished do a defrag.
    Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Defragmenter
    They will take some time but at least you will know your hard drive is working correctly and tidied up.

  • Reboot and see if there's any improvement.

No, I've never used it. So if you downloaded it and ran it what happened?

Another reason your system could be slow is there are too many applications starting up automatically at boot time. Tell us some more details about your computer and what it runs. You may be able to run msconfig (Start>run type "msconfig" without quotes) which opens the configuration window, select the tab marked 'Startup'. Untick all the entries here, close msconfig and reboot. If the computer runs at normal speed then one or more of the msconfig entries is causing the problem. Put the ticks back in one at a time till the problem comes back, then that is the program which is slowing down your system.

hth :thumbsup:

it said :

Registry First Aid Ver 4.0

Cleans the registry to speed up your computer and stop program crashes!
The latest version of Registry First Aid is even easier to use and safely fixes more Registry errors than ever before. Helps eliminate system crashes, software lockups and slow loading programs caused by incorrect Registry entries leftover from software installations & uninstallations that went awry. Registry First Aid fixes these problems by removing these references that are no longer needed. Hundreds of these files bog down the registry, slow down your computer and cause software to lock up. RFA 4.0 offers added features that check the registry for unused software entries and "Run" registry entry errors. Also supports adding multiple entries into an excluded list and a new safe invalid path detection algorithm.

Registry First Aid scans registry for orphan file/folder references, finds these files or folders on your drives that may have been moved from their initial locations, and then corrects your registry entries to match the located files or folders. In addition, if your registry has links to files of deleted applications, Registry First Aid will find these invalid entries and remove them from your registry. With Registry First Aid, your Windows registry will be always clean and correct, helping your programs load faster and speeding up your computer. Registry First Aid - Keep it clean and keep it fast!


is this true? sorry this is another program.. i heard that microsoft has its own program.

Unless you are very comfortable with what you are doing, and really trust an application like this, avoid making registry changes. One mistake can so serious damage to the operating system. I have used, in the past, and with great caution and review of every candidate for deletion, an application such as the one you mention, and have seen absolutely NO improvement in computer speed.
Bottom line: you can probably find other ways that will actually improve speed and are much safer to use. Follow Rimmer's advice.
Regards,
John

Try scanreg /fix
scanreg /opt

You'll need to run both from the command prompt, when in windows select exit to msdos (or something similar can't remember exactly what it says.)

You can't run it in Windows because the registry is in use. You need to do it from a command prompt before Windows loads.
