  • Dave_M just recently posted this link to the OneCare online clean up scanner, which cleans the registry: http://onecare.live.com/site/en-us/center/cleanup.htm


    I wasn’t aware of this feature of the Safety Scanner, and haven’t had time to try it yet, but at no charge, it sounds like it’s worth a try. This scanner even creates a System Restore point so you can reverse the changes if something goes wrong.
