NTREGOPT

Publisher: Lars HedererOS: WindowsCategory: Windows Registry
NTREGOPT, or NT Registry Optimizer, is a Windows Registry defragmentation utility.  Over time as entries are added and deleted from the Windows Registry, gaps are created. These gaps are unused space that takes up unnecessary disk space and reduces the overall performance of accessing the Registry.  NTREGOPT rebuilds the Registry so that it is compact and does not contain any extra spaces.Running NTREGOPT registry optimizer


I got the following message running the NTREGOPT program that I downloaded from this site.

Error optimizing registry hive HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\BCD00000000

What are my repair options now?


thanks,

This is a normal error when using NTREGOPT with Windows 7.

You can ignore the error and continue, or use the workaround suggested. However, I don't know why you would need to use NTREGOPT on Windows Vista and later version of Windows.

 Don't use registry optimizers or cleaners.  They aren't needed and don't help anything.  


Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.
