Surplus regisrety entries

  gogmagog 21:30 29 Aug 05

I notice that there are numerous entries like> of which many seem to realte to items that I have not accessed direcly myself.

I wonder if it is safe to delete them as they do not appear to be system ot other dangerous to remove items. Can I just delete and can this be done in bulk where several are listed consecutively?

Are there any procedures especially to follow to ensure they are really gone?

Manually removing Registry entries can cause your machine to refuse to start.

You could try a tool like this click here to clean out your system, including the registry.

Point taken. I ran CCleaner but they're still there. Is there any particular option I need choose with CCleaner to rid myself of the surpus enties?

In case it id of value to the further advice that may come. The entries are located in

HKEY_Current_User\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Internet Settings\P3P\History

BTW what is P3P?

It maybe something like Kazaa or Limewire or something similar. I think it maybe a peer to peer program. Do have anything like that?

Incidentally, if these entires are in the "History" folder, it is probably OK to get rid of them. But please keep in mind, I don't know that for certain and I wouldn't want to be responsible for registry problems with your machine.

If you decide to take that route, make sure you backup the registry first.

Best way is as it's History. Why not start Internet Options and remove Clear History, Delete Files, Delete Cookies. I do this at the end of each session on the net

If you've got Spywareblaster, and/or Spybot, you could be picking up on the protected items (restricted sites, blocked active x's etc) which are listed under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains.

Just ignore my post as that isn't the registry key in which you've found the items.
