    Hello all
    regseeker found 430 registry entries, some with Red text others Green text.
    Are the green ones 100% safe to fix (delete). and what about the red ones. I'm an illiterate when it comes to editing registry. Please your info Guys.Thanks

    Let Regseeker make a backup. In case a problem occur, restore it.

    I've been using RegSeeker from the beginning. Rather than trying to analyze what's safe to remove and what is not, I simply delete the entire list.

    RegSeeker's default setting's automatically saves a backup of the deleted reg keys if restoration is necessitated.

    Since having Regseeker I have never questioned it's results with regard to 'Clean Registry'....I've never backed up and just deleted whatever it suggested as being superfluous......and it has never ever dropped me in the doodoo yet......if you don't trust it, don't use it......it's only going to give you a headache......wondering, What IF...... :D :D



    Cochise, :cool:

    Service Pack 2 too?

    Does that work?

    I think SP2 is rather sensitive ... in Registry term?

    :)

    Hmmm ... Yes, I guess XP2 can be a bit nasty ...

    OK I will stick to Ccleaner and MRU Blaster for the moment.

    Cheers

    i have used Regseeker afew times and each time it has cleaned the registry it has caused problems, however, they were always easily fixed by merging the backup back into the registry.

    having said that i must have read about 10/20 threads on the subject of Regseeker, with each thread containing views of 2-5 people, and have never heard of another person having any problems with it other then me.

    to answer your question, Hadi, from memory, the green results should be 100% safe to delete, and the red about 95-100% safe to delete. if i were you i would run it then delete just one of the green results then close the program; then rerun Regseeker and see if you are able to restore the backup. if you have no problems restoring the backup then go ahead and delete everything it finds, safe in the knowledge you can restore the backup it makes if you encounter any problems. Good Luck :)

    Hi Chew, ;)

    There's no issue with using RegSeeker with SP2. ;) Do as suggested above, let RegSeeker make a backup, (the check box is in the lower left of the Main GUI) if you have any issue, simply restore the backup. You shouldn't experience any difficulties, as RegSeeker's default exclusions fairly safely eliminate any concerns or potential hazards. I think it's the best registry cleaner on the market bar none. Another good free tool that includes a registry cleaner is Easy Cleaner from Toni Arts (http://personal.inet.fi/business/toniarts/ecleane.htm).

    you could try jv16 Powertools i use it along side CCleaner and i have never had any problems with it. i also have Registry Mechanic, which is a paid product, and is highly regarded. if i run both CC and JV16 then run RM RM will only find 3/4 things. so it seems between them, CC and JV16, are the equal of RM. :)

    Thanks Dog.

    I am not in the hurry to clean anything now but I will in the near future.

    I just want to ensure I don't mess up my WinXP SP2 ... I just rebuilt my entire system last week btw.

    Cheers

    no problem :) if you decide to use JV16 and need any help post back here.

    i have used Easy Cleaner and it is very good too. make sure you use the link Dog gave as someone else has the Easy Cleaner domain and has caused problems for Toni Helenius of EC.
