I ran a scan of my registry from Registry Mechanic. It found several errors. I do not want to buy this product. I know alot about computers and have been reading alot about the registry and know to proceed with caution. However, can I print the list out and delete these errors myself? If so, how

Thank you very much.

Thank God its Friday.

You are correct to take registry changes very seriously. There is a program called Ccleaner that is good to have that will clean your temporary files, etc. and has another use with the "Issues" button that lists registry items one can fix. It is a free program. It will also back up the changes.

Sure, what the heck. (No baby pictures, please!) You are welcome.

One word of advice when using CCleaner:

Ccleaner (Modifies registry – Always backup your registry before using)
(Prefetch Cleaning Warning - The Advanced section of Ccleaner has a performance degrading option to “clean Old Prefetch data", never select this option for cleaning as it will actually increase load times for Windows and your applications.Cleaning the Prefetch folder as beneficial is a Myth and actually degrades performance. Windows by default cleans this folder at 128 entries. Anyone who claims this should be cleaned for ANY reason does not understand how Windows Prefetching works.)

In addition, always backup your registry before making any changes or using any program that makes changes to the registry.

There is a freeware program named Erunt that will automate registry backups at intervals set by you. Highly recommended!
