Does anyone know or work with the program "Ace Utilities" for cleaning up things in Windows register, junk files and other stuff.
I read that it is something good.......
I've installed it on my computer and it found of lot of invalid (????) entries etc., but I didn't cancel anything yet because I don't know which entries you can delete for sure and which one not.

Does anybody have suggestions how to use it in a proper way ??

Does the HELP section give you any information? Whatever you do, be sure the application has a back up function that will save what you delete or change, in case you make a mistake.

I use Ace Utilities regularly, and highly recommend it as the safest utility I've found for cleaning the registry - as well as it's other functions.

As installed - with default settings - it uses a time-tested 'exceptions list', to prevent removal of critical registry entries that might cripple your system. It also has a menu that allows an 'expert' mode, if you wish to operate without the exceptions list.

The only instance of registry-cleaning problem I've encountered with AU is the deletion of registry entries for 'radrun', which are necessary for operation of my Omega graphics card drivers. I added those items to the exceptions list - problem solved.

You will be prompted to set a restore point before using the program, and any registry-cleaning operations you wish to restore can easily be restored via the AU menu.

If you've purchased Ace Utilities, you are entitled to a free download of their RC registry-compression program also.

Hope this helps!
