    i completely agree!!!!
    even the guy who works for microsoft in this video about hyper visors was talking about the registry and discriped it as a "huge ball where everything is stored" you should be able to take out something without causing issues with the rest but you cant...

    Exactly. The Windows Registry is ancient and needs to be replaced with something better (M(S/y)SQL?). Better yet, all Windows apps should be like Portable Apps where the settings are saved in a file, rather than the registry.

    I hope that you didn't try to fix those 'errors'.

    IMO, registry 'cleaners' are the last recourse before deciding to reformat the harddrive and reinstall your OS.

    I did... but only in FD-ISR backup. Got a BSOD shortly after that but not sure if caused by cleaning or iTunes.

    Seems Commodo is becoming a jack of all trades and a master of none.

    Alright, I'm back from vacation and I'm gonna rant. Attention Comodo: Stop trying to come up with new projects every 5 weeks! For petesake you have, what, 2-3 programs still in Beta and now this? Prediction: Comodo is not too far away from being considered a shoddy company. They will keep releasing product after product and not concentrating on fixing issues/making easier their main programs. What the hell are they trying to do, become Google Labs Version 2?

    Come on Comodo, shooting out programs like you're working an assembly line is ridiculous. Your firewall (minus HIPS for the common folk) is fine, your AV sucks, God only knows why you decided we needed yet another virtualization app, and now, you're putting out a registry cleaner, an app that has a billion others like it? What a croc:rolleyes:

    Very true, it's like their fashioning every conceivable app thats long been in circulation (AND STABLE) as though they were on piece-work in a steel manufacturing plant.

    Whats Next?

    Heh, why not.

    Their building all sorts of apps recently, some in beta, some out, but you can lay odds they are going to go all out with even more, and why not, i'm sure they are very well financed enough to run several in house research & development labs all at the same time everyday with the staff to man them. :D

    I don't understand why you are all hating on Comodo.

    They have many programs out, but they are actively developing every single one of them.

    They just hired a new programer for CPF for instance.

    I am happy to see more software from them.

    All of their projects are rapidly growing.

    Maybe if Comodo makes an OS we won't have to deal with the registry anymore :D

    Not so much hating as finding it senseless. I mean, come on, do you not think it is smarter to put out a project at a time, work on it and fix issues, get it up to speed with competitive offerings that have been out much longer and are more stable, and THEN say "hey, that worked out, now let's try to do this now"? More power to them if they can juggle all of these projects and make them actually work as well if not better than other offerings, but pessimistic me just doesn't see that happening unless they slow down some.

    No, because they have seperate development teams for each one. The person working on the registry cleaner is not being taken away from the firewall. The person working on the antivirus is not being taken away from the registry cleaner, etc.

    I agree.

    Besides i hate to mess with registry, reg cleaners are a big NO NO. They can never ever fix issues of a reg cleaner, no matter how much they develop it. It,s just a wastage of time n resources INO.

    I believe a pre-req for CRC to work with Vista is that SP1 needs to be installed.
