    Admittedly I'm a reg cleaner junkie, have tried/used many over the years. Necessary or not I still periodically use CCleaner's, Eusing, Registry Mechanic and search (search only) after installs (If I don't just restore Comodo Time Machine snapshot) with RegSeeker. I also used to use MSofts but it isn't available anymore. Anyway, recently I was plagued by some buffer overflow errors for the first time in this XP's +six year life. I only keep a few days of CTM snapshots and was reasonably sure, despite initially thinking the errors were just an anomaly, that they started before my oldest snapshot. Like I always do when having a PC issue, I searched the problem and one of the recommendations was to clean the registry, which I did and the problem has apparently been solved.

    Hi, well you'll get conflicting suggestions from people about this :D

    I think it depends on, which Reg cleaner you use, maybe which OS, & which entries you ALLOW it/them to delete.

    I've tried a few over the years, but now only use Regseeker Version 1.35 beta. Don't know why they still called it a Beta after years of stabilty ?

    I ONLY delete the Green entries though & ALWAYS have the Backup option enabled :thumb:

    Good to hear you're sorted :)

    For every case like yours, thousands create errors on their system using these software.

    Why do you use Regseeker Version 1.35 beta and why not version RegSeeker 1.55 ?

    I did use for a while when it first came out, but found i preferred v1.35. v1.55 had extra options i didn't require.
