Reg Cleaner 3.8 (413 Kb)

With RegCleaner you can easily get rid of those old and obsolete registry entries created by software that you have destroyed ages ago. You don t have to be an expert to use this program. Note that this program is not like those other so called registry cleaners, they search any filenames from registry, then if the file doesn t exist anymore they remove the registry key or value where this filename was. But RegCleaner shows you the list of software that are registered in the registry and by checking checkboxes you select which software you don t have anymore and RegCleaner removes all registry created by those programs automatically. You can also remove start up programs that are started behind your back and can dramatically decrease your computer s performance. Small in size, free and very easy to use!

Hi:
I thank you again for the reply. I tried the link given in your mail. The page was not found. However, I tried the following link after a little bit research and trials:
http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=de&u=http://www.freeware-download.com/4webmaster/useronlinecounter/&prev=/search%3Fq%3Drelated:www.freeware-download.com/cgi-bin/detail.cgi%253FID%253D697%26hl%3Den%26lr%3D%26ie%3DUTF-8
I was able to download and use it.
It looks like the problem is addressed. However, I have the following questions please:
1) When the Regcleaner is invoked, it shows all registry entries as "NEW"
2) In the Author column, I see entries as "Unknown" and I am not sure if I can remove those entries without affecting the system operation.
If you think it will be easier to interact directly with you I will be glad to email additional details. Pl let me know.
Thanks a lot.

Look the entries over carefully and know what your removing.
