You do realize Registry Cleaners do more harm than good, which may be why you have this problem in the first place.

I don't think that it is the Registry Cleaners that do the harm. It is their injudicious use that does the harm. Most Registry Cleaners provide for levels of cleaning. Running them at the safe level is absolutely safe. It is only running them at the aggressive level that is fraught with danger and may create problems sometimes.

That is exactly why I mentioned ones ability. In the wrong hands these programs can do more damage than can be fixed without a clean install.

There is a very good registry cleaner named "jv16 PowerTools". Long ago it was recommended by Fred Langa as the best one out there. I have used it extensively in the past but I don't use it now.

It provided for three levels of Registry cleaning. As I always keep back-up images I ran it a couple of times at the aggressive level. It never did much harm except that it stopped running a few third party programs that I could easily settle later.

I wonder what four programs Mr. Renpei is running and if "jv16 PowerTools" is one of them.
