Gentlemen!!! Plagued PC owners!!! Thread posters!!! Those of you with well intentions, helpful attempts of solution, and multiple posts. I beseech you. For this will be my final post in this thread. If you have, or have not, CCleaner and are stricken with registry entries/errors of any and all bygone uninstalled programs. Redundant file extensions that remain behind that have no, seemingly, possible way of being deleted. This is my ultimatum to you. After hours of searching related forums on the internets, to no avail, I came to the conclusion that a CLEAN INSTALL of the OS is the only solution that will rid us of the mocking registry entries/errors. Now some of you may not be in the option of a clean install. You are still holding out for that miraculous solution that may or may not come in the future. As for me I'm throwing in the towel.(Proverbly speaking) Tonight I'm doing a clean install on my "plagued" PC. I'll continue to monitor this thread. Maybe one of you will find the sought out solution we have been looking for. But it will be too late for me. I'll just know not to ever download winamp again. LOL LOL!!! Good luck to you all.
