Quick question here on cleaning registries... Have offed a couple of programs lately, including Yahoo, MSN Explorer and Messanger, Quick Time. Taking up space, never used 'em. Following I ran Registry Mechanic and Reg Cleaner, which between them located some junk and cleaned it out. Scanning the registry via "regedit", I still come across entries, particularly under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, having to do with these programs. That is to say, they are named "QUICK TIME.something" or "MSNMESSANGER.something" and the like. Is it risky stuff to delete specifically named entries as such, considering that the software no longer exists? I've done a bit of this, so far without noticeable consequence...but maybe I'm just lucky so far? FWIW, I also noted "loadqm.exe" as part of my startup...hmmm? Googled, found it to be part of MSN Explorer and Messanger, and otherwise useless. Disabled it through Tools in Spybot S&D, and gassed it according to instructions also located. Running Win2K Pro.
