Try this free, online scan: http://safety.live.com. FWIW - it's the only Microsoft tool available for cleaning the registry. As with all registry cleaners, use it with caution. Too much use can cause problems.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
