Windows 7 and Windows XP tools RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've had some problems with my Win7 machine due to a bogus social networking toolbar (Wajam) that was installed either by accident or surreptitiously. I managed to remove the visible traces but want to make sure there are no gremlins left in the registry.  I have a copy of the book "Windows Registry Guide" (copyright 2005, author Jerry Honeycutt) that came with a CD containing  a number of registry files and tools for configuring OS  characteristics.  I'm wondering how compatible these may be with Windows 7.  Also I saw some comments about commercial registry cleaners. Any comments on which is a trustworthy utility?
