Any recommendations for a free registry clean up tool for windows xp?
Question: Hello Everyone, In the last 2-3 months, I have been installing and uninstall some software from the internet, things like Tortorrent download tools, software tools, Eclipse, NetBeans, Quick timer, iTunes.. etc.. a lot of them. Then after using them, I have uninstalled a few cuz I realized I no more need them. Now my Pc is running very slow. Also I faced a problem where this ccsvhost.exe (Norton related) stuff would eat up all the memory and cpu, I just found a work around I open up norton then disabled few kind of scans like messanger and such stuff or background scan, that helped me from norton slowing down the system. Having done all this good lot of crap.. Now I am feeling I need to clean up my registry. I understand that I am trying to install one more tool, but any tool that is worth installing and that might clean up my registry, without bothering me to buy the software in the middle of its job? I mean it totally annoys when it says so many issues are identified with your registry, but plz subscribe for it to further clean up :(. .. It will be a great help if anyone of you help me with this. Thank you in advance. Hi all, Thanks to you all for the reply. I just used Advance System Care free ware, so far so good, I will see for a day or two and if it looks fine then shall update again with the observations and then try the suggestions by other guys.

You could do it manually if you have had any experience with the registry. I sometimes manually modify the registry to remove an references to applications that I removed as some uninstallers to do not always remove all registry references. If you have not had any experience working with the registry, I would suggest you get an app, such as Registry Mechanic, and run it weekly. You might also check Sofotex for a free registry cleaner.

A registry is a very intricate set of software instructions. A cheap registry cleaner can do more harm than good believe me, I have seen registries destroyed by cheap junk! Stay away from free registry cleaners! http://www.dll4free.com/best-registry-cleaner.html
* What you described about AVG? Thats Anti-Virus... But here might be what your looking for... *** Advanced WindowsCare Personal Edition *** This Freeware will provide you with a deep scan of both your Registry and Windows core for any Errors and Conflicts, then make a thorough diagnosis and fix all those errors and conflicts in your system. Also give you a complete diagnosis and deep scan of your current performance status and suggest optimizations, then clean out any junk and accelerate the whole system. Features of this program include: Ending slow downs, freezes, crashes, and security threats. Scanning and finding what other utilities miss on your PC. Keeping your PC error-free and running more smoothly than ever. Do a search for this. * Clean and Protect your PC. * I like Avast... but since you don't want to register.. Avira AntiVirus. * SuperAntiSpyware - Finds viruses and spyware that are very very hard to find with no conflict to other antivirus software. * Spyware Blaster - Will help keep your system spyware-free and secure, without interfering with the 'good side' of the web. * AWC as stated above. * Comodo Firewall Pro - For XP and Vista keeps hackers out of your system and all types of malware. * Do a search for all of these. * Note: Practically all Spyware and Hijackers tend to target 'Internet Explorer' and not other browsers. If you don't mind switching your browser, then you should switch and immediately greatly reduce your risk of infecting your computer. I would recommend... Mozilla Firefox 3. This new version of the Web browser with improvements in security, speed and design. It also will start blocking rather than simply warning about sites known to engage in "phishing" scams that try to trick users into revealing passwords and other sensitive information. The new version adds protection from sites known to distribute viruses and other malicious software. * Make your Internet Explorer more secure with the WOT add-on - http://www.windowsmarketplace.com/detail...
Generally best not to use an automated registry cleaner, it's likely to make things worse rather than better, see http://aumha.net/viewtopic.php?f=62&t=28... If you really want to use one, the registry cleaner in CCleaner is one of the safest.
Well technically viruses do not infect your registry. Malicious code will place entries in various locations in your registry so that malicious programs can start when you boot into Windows. What you are seeing in the report are registry links created by malicious software, but the links are not actually viruses. Most antivirus programs will not clean your regsitry, you need an spyware removal tool for that. Try Counter Spy.
