One Live Care Does Not Complete Registry Scan RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I have Vista Ultimate 64 and when I run One Live Care the Registry Scan does not complete. Do you know how long this scan would take. It ran for 4 hours and never completed. There was no spyware and only 1.7mbs of temp folders. Is there any other Microsoft tool that can be used?

  • This subscription OneCare application has NO registry cleaner, so you must be referring to the on-line Safety Scanner.  That utility is supported here:

  • To add to what Dave said:  As far as I'm aware, this is the only registry scanner Microsoft has made public, and at least early on it was capable of causing significant issues--inability to apply security patches to Office after running such a scan, for example.

    I've very seldom found anyone who could offer convincing evidence that  a registry cleaner/scanner provided measurable benefit to them.  The sole exception I remember was a software developer, whose work with installation packaging resulted in a large amount of registry churn--a situation very different from the average user.
