i downloaded uniblue but it only repaired 14 errors (trial version), would love to repair the other 100 :thumbsup: , and also every time i let the little ones use the PC they watch videos and a bunch of other noise and then i end up with a bunch of cookies of all makes and models..... i raise the security level on cookies in the internet options and then they complain that they cant watch videos or get in other sites, whats up with that ?

Unless you know what you're doing I would stay away from the registry. Cleaning your registry is unlikely to improve your computer's performance in any noticeable way and you run the risk of really screwing up the operating system.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

I agree with Budapest, about the Registry issues.
Unless you have a specific problem you're trying to correct, it's best to stay out of the Registry.
Registry cleaners mark entries as bad, depending on what the software creator thinks, is bad.
That's why no 2 cleaners will find all of the, same "problems".
Registry "problems" actually have very little effect, on the overall performance of the operating system.

As far as the cookies go, many sites require cookies, for the site to function properly.
If they're not tracking cookies, I wouldn't worry too much about them.
A program like Ad-Aware SE, or Spybot S&D, will remove tracking cookies, while leaving the "good" cookies.
