I run Vista Home Premium 32 bit on a Dell E512 with AMD Brisbane 5000+ processor and 4gb of ram. I've been reviewing the list of domains that are saved in my registry and deleting suspicious domains and or just ones I don't want remaining in the list. I did this manually one entry at a time in two different folders. When I continued my search it came up with an identical list in a 3rd folder! How many more lists there are I don't know as I gave up at that point. Is there a tool I can use to search for and remove multiple entries at once?? Thanks! :huh:

Are you talking about a registry cleaner ?

If life is not an option then why are we not given the option in the first place !

I've used CCleaner and it does a fairly good job. But it leaves a lot of stuff behind like the domain list. Is there something better out there? Also regarding the list of domains do you know if that just lists domains that have interfaced with IE only or does it include all browsers?
