Should I use a Registry Cleaner?

Running Windows 7 32-bit operating system on Gateway GT5622 desktop computer. Event Viewer reports errors 7026, 7003, and 7001. The description for these errors is misconfigured system files. Should I use a system cleaner to correct these errors?

Don't use registry cleaners!! They delete registry settings you no longer need. But they don't fix a system and they don't make your system faster! Sometimes they delete too much.... making your system unbootable or in a wrong state

7026, 7003, and 7001.... please give all info from eventlog
"device manager" gives no "other devices"? "device manager" no drivers with exclamation marks?

Also do this in Elevated Command Prompt

Code:
sfc  /scannow
No integrity errors?

Sorry I gathered the information before reading your note about Elevated Command Prompt.
I logged on as Administrator and used the Snipping Tool to copy and paste information into a Word Document. I placed information on separate pages because I thought you could go through it easier that way; willing to redo if necessary. When I attached the Word document it did not upload because the file size was over the limit. If I break it into parts it will upload. So you will likely get 1 of 3, 2 of 3 ,3 of 3. Here goes.

Many of us use, and recommend, CCleaner which has a good, not too aggressive registry cleaner.

Hi Britton30,

Thanks for the advice on CCleaner. I already use it and like it. The desktop computer I'm having a problem with is one a bought for my son. He called me and said, "Dad its not working" so I have it back, I don't know what he did. It was wonderful condition when I gave it to him. One thing I would like to become more proficient at is backup and restore. Would appreciate advice; have purchased a license for Macrium Reflect. I like its features, but I have not used it extensively.
