Each time I run Reg Seeker, I lose Flash where needed in web pages etc.
Then I have to format using "flash un-installer" before re-installing Adobe (Macromedia) Flash. Apart from not running Reg Seeker, above can be avoided by editing after its scan, ensuring all "flash" entries NOT included in unwanted items deleted.
I wish to keep using Reg Seeker as it is efficient compared to others.
Is there any other solution?
(appeared to commence at the time Adobe took over Macromedia?)
Thanks,
stewy.

Meddling around with registry is liable to get you into trouble. Unfortunally not all registry entries are not easily identifiable as belonging to a program. Are you doing a back-up prior to run regseeker and deleting reg. entries?

Thanks fozzie,
1. I`m very much aware about the dangers of "meddling" with my registry and do not manually mess around. However,Reg Seeker is a program recommended by I.T. experts( writing for magazines,newspapers in Australia) and is widely used (without problems) by many of my associates.I have used it for four years.
2.It has a check box ( which is always ticked) providing for application of a back-up, as part of its operation.
3.This is the first & only occasion where I have been forced to exclude items from the numbered list of "unwanted" entries revealed by a scan of the registry.( one has to agree with the deletions, by highlighting,and clicking delete button.)
4.Each entry is described, so " I am able to identify " the ones that involve "Flash".
5.Why one (or more?) of the (13) entries ( flash )that are listed for deletion, after a scan, when that deletion causes LOSS of "Flash", is not understood. A CLOSE FRIEND IS EXPERIENCING THE SAME PROBLEM!)
I realise there may not be a solution but decided to ask.
I`m grateful for your interest,
stewy.
