    Registry Cleaner Help

    Hi Guys,

    Not sure if anyone can help, I am after a registry scanner/cleaner that is free. I have a Toshiba Lappy that is running a little sluggish, I did clean it out, by removing a heap of stuff off it, which helped. I ran a registry checker on it, which says it found about 190+ problems but it wont fix them...

    Can anyone suggest a free program that will clean?
    Andrew.
    comments and criticisms are always appreciated.
    Unless I post into the "NOT FOR CRITIQUE" section then the above doesn't apply.

    Okay tried Nellies link and it worked, seemed to have fixed it'self I think, will see what else I can find.... I know I can go to number of programs that claim to fix everything but other programs pick things up.... No win situation I think, unless I go Linux.

    I too run CC Cleaner as well as Regcure, I bought the full version of Regcure for $20.00 and together both seem to do a great clean up and repair job.
