Based on the final message I assume that it checks for "integrity violations" within your windows files, correct?
yeah tht is what it does... alright once it restores the keys, the best thing to do is restart the computer, make sure you dont get any errors on boot up.

thats the next thing

It is certainly getting farther with the "verification stage" now that I restored at least some of the reg keys sysmech deleted, hopefully the entire process completes though.

Exactly what does this command do, out of curiosity?
It only fixes or replaces lost or missing system files but it can't fix registry problems like you have now. Once the registry is restored it will hopefully be able to complete the scan. If I had known you used a registry cleaner I would have had you restore the registry with the back up file first thing.

Thanks again everyone.

Yeah...
when it comes to those programs that is suppose to optimize your computer

Just stick with the basics.. like

Clear the temp files, optimize the memory....
never touch those registry items unless you are very sure of wht your doing..
and do it manually

another thing that will speed the computer up is shutting services and start ups for your computer.

Umm and doing a defrag on your drive will especially help , it will consolidate all your files to the front of the drive so your access time for the hard drive to read the files are alot faster.

Those registry back ups come in handy. I gave acurasd plenty of Rep.

What people dont understand is that you can have alot of crap on the hard drive compared to someone with little crap on the hard drive ands till have it run the same as long as your services are running the same and you define the MBR/NTSF where the important files are stored and most common used files so it does not try to send that needle all over the hard drive trying to find your system files. That is something I enjoyed about Symantec System Utilities. It will find the most commonly used files and your main system fies and force it to the beginning of the drive. Then the rest of the drive can be used for storage.

The hard drive is what is used for storage but what really affects your computer is how fast your hard drive accesses those files and how much junk is loaded into your RAM..

Aye, I already manually optimized various boot services and whatnot, but from now on I'll think I shall avoid any major reg changes unless I really know what it is I'm changing. With any luck I might pick up a SSD in a month or two and wont even have to worry about access times and file location, but in the meantime I'll have to keep things optimized.

with 8 gigs of RAM you shoudln't have any problems.

Here is another things i can suggest.....

You could go here an if you have a desktop or a dedicated laptop that stays at home... then you coudl always check this to see if you have a little bit more of performance...

another thing that you can do is update your chipset drivers as well...

Thanks, I will be sure to check that.
And I always try and keep my chipset and various drivers up to date, no worries there.

*EDIT*
It appears write caching is already enabled on both my HDD's, so no need to adjust it.
