My windows close program sound is sounding every few minutes I've run my antivirus program and my reg edit programs and find nothing. Does anyone know what is causing this?
Thanks

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.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I would try running either the sfc /scannow command or a repair install of Windows.

Louis,
I don't have an XP disk. I'm not sure how to run the tool without it, the directions are not very clear any suggestions?

Thanks, dc3 for your input about reg cleaners.

Sorry, I always have disks and use those when running it. If the directions don't cover an alternative, I know of none.

System manufacturer and model?

Louis
