Improper changes to the registry could render your computer inoperable.
Remember to backup the registry before making any changes.

I have a magazine that recommends a shareware program called RegSupreme. Not sure if it has a version for older Windows. There should be a good one out there for free, or at least cheap.

I've always been afraid myself to use something like that, but I'm a careful person who avoids almost any browsing, and thus exposure to bad stuff. heh Just be sure to backup the registry like tg said, before doing anything.

Good luck!
