Next time you are in that situation I would try CCleaner registry component as I mentioned. I've tried some other registry cleaners that were good such as jv16 PowerTools. But sometimes if they are a bit too powerful it's easy to get deletion happy when you see all that clutter.

But if you back up the registry first you should be able to experiment a bit. Main thing is not to use something so invasive that it could keep you from booting the next time around.

I'll give that a try. Do you prefer a reg backup or creation of a restore point?
