I have run the unregistar tool from paretologic to remove the current lic. It says it's removed but when I restart it's still there. I have run their tool 3 times with no luck. I cant install the new lic until that's removed. I have tried uninstalling the whole program, but when reinstalled the old lic is still there.

Dear akellym,

I was reading your message and what I can tell you is, your problem is in the most causes a Windows Register problem.
Now must you don't bad thinking about that, there is absolute not wrong with your system, but when you download and after that, install programs and then sometimes must you also remove a program, then the Windows Register will be dirty.
Also is it important that you take care that the Volume of your drive is intact, because when the volume has errors then get you also problems.
My advice for you is: First download and install CCleaner, after installation, run that program and select register and then the button analyze, you will see that you get a lot of errors that are in the Windows Register, you will also see when you have ran the tool that there is a button for removing the errors.
When you have do this all, than is it smart that you run chkdsk /p and /r via your system driver, but the possibility is there that you don't have a second partition, in that case, must you to do that via the cmd-box.
When you must to do that, you have 2 possibillities for that: 1. chkdsk /v checkdisk check your system for errors in the system integrity and will try for repair this and you can do this via chkdsk /f/r.
After that, chkdsk check your drive in 5 steps and repair the errors.
Personally check I my drive volume via my repair partition, this partition did I created via msconfig and selected the repair partition and enter, then I rebooted my computer, I got 2 partitions, Windows Xp and the repair partition.
I did also entering more seconds then Windows gives, I did entering also 12 seconds for booting.
I have now more time for making a choice what I will use.
When you have repair the Windows Register and check your volume, I know sure, that you can install the program what you want.
Alright I give you the link for CCleaner.

Registry tools are absolutely not recommended and here is why: http://miekiemoes.blogspot.com/2008/02/reg...weaking_13.html

In addition to Broni's link Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons:

• Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.

The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable. For a more detailed explanation, read Understanding The Registry.

• Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad entry". One cleaner may find entries on your system that will not cause problems when removed, another may not find the same entries, and still another may want to remove entries required for a program to work.

• Not all registry cleaners create a backup of the registry before making changes. If the changes prevent the system from booting up, then there is no backup available to restore it in order to regain functionality. A backup of the registry is essential BEFORE making any changes to the registry.

• Improperly removing registry entries can hamper malware disinfection and make the removal process more difficult if your computer becomes infected. For example, removing malware related registry entries before the infection is properly identified can contribute to system instability and even make the malware undetectable to removal tools.

• The usefulness of cleaning the registry is highly overrated and can be dangerous. In most cases, using a cleaner to remove obsolete, invalid, and erroneous entries does not affect system performance but it can result in "unpredictable results".

Unless you have a particular problem that requires a registry edit to correct it, I would suggest you leave the registry alone. Using registry cleaning tools unnecessarily or incorrectly could lead to disastrous effects on your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again. For routine use, the benefits to your computer are negligible while the potential risks are great.
