Hi folks I just gave regseeker a try.For those of yous that use it in the keys section there's entries for invalid services(experimental) and scan drives for old exe entries.Should I tick these?These boxes were unticked but when I ticked them it found some stuff.I'm just not sure if I should clean them or not?Thanks.

with reg checks always keep to default settings, and only keep to recommended ones, they are a lot of bad ones out there that promise the world but are dreadful. keep to what people on the forum recommend.

try winaso or eusing free reg cleaner.

I have winaso and it's 1 of the best i have used.You can only repair 10 items at a time but you can use it as many times as you like.

RegSeeker does create an automatic backup so you should be able to backpedal out of any disasters and restore everything back to pre-deletion.

I use RegSeeker, and am quite happy with it, but I have always left it on the default settings as advised by sunny staines

I've used Regseeker for yonks and always let it scan drives for old EXE entries. Never had a problem. Remember to run it at least twice to make sure it's cleaned everything.

I let it scan for invalid services once, with no ill effects, but think it's generally better to leave 'experimental' things alone.

There's 10 entries(invalid paths) that when cleaned keep reapearing.Mainly old java entries and adobe.Any ideas why it detects them but wont clean them?Just curious.Thanks.

Don't worry, I've got 3 on mine that never shift (Sony and two I can't remember). Don't know why but nothing to worry about.

Incidentally, Auslogics Registry Defrag is worth running too. click here

It can be a bit fussy about background processes which is why EndItAll2 is useful. click here

auslogics is always worth running after heavy reg repairs, i use it too.
