    Hi everyone.

    Recently i got hold of 'Registry Mechanic'.

    I have just installed it and ran a scan. It found 1483 errors...

    Now my question is simple, to those who know this program, while a lot of these erros belong to stuff i deleted years ago(!), a lot of those 'errors' belong to programs that i still use very much... Is it still safe to delete the whole lot? Or should i go through 1 by 1?

    Thanks in advance ppl.

    Miggs.

    its ok to just let reg mechanic fix it all, it makes a back up of everything so incase it deletes something you need itll restore it.

    I just click it and forget about it. Fix-It Utilties' registry fixer makes you go through each one. Life's too short.

    I am not defending Bigfix at all but the program is free. If you guys know of any "freebie" that does the job by all means let us know.

    This is not a smart remark. Your advises are well taken.

    well personaly i wouldnt trust a freebie with my registry unless its ccleaner, anyway im sure weve all got limewire or somthing similar so anythings a freebie if you understand what im trying to say.
    regmechanics great anyway and you all should go out and "buy" it.. cough cough download from limewire...

    the reason i wouldnt trust a freebie with my registry as jjssj downloaded one a while ago and it deleted ntldr, we couldnt even boot into windows or do hardly ANYTHING, in the end xp had to be reinstaled. :(

    You're damn right Rav... Sometimes i hear people around here trying to throw sand on everyone's eyes, pi@@es me right off, if you know what i mean...

    Ran it a couple of times already, and i just let it work, like Ashroy said, life's too short...

    hey thats good that its working for you it realy is a great program, we all need programs like that and its just that somtimes you cant trust freebies, www.download.com has a fair selection of trials and free to use programs.

    i dont think you should get freebies that you havent heard of anywhere else,they can mess you up, ask jjssj...they can be hell!!!

    in a few clicks everything was lost..and p2p's are great, if you find a program you like on download.com then just go and "buy" the full version, basicaly i hate to rely on freebies but there are a handfull that are great such as ccleaner,avg free,zone alarm free,spybot,ms anti spyware,ewido,ad aware se and a few others, but i just cant say this enough remmeber not to rely on a strange freebie that is not very well known,they can be hell as i've seen.

    I 'buy' all my software on p2p mate, without exception. Some of those freebes you mentioned like ccleaner, ad aware se and spybot are a must in anyones pc nowadays... Altough i'm having a lot of barney on some spyware i got a few days ago, i even got a thread here on AD about it... None of them is managing to clean it totally...
