Hey wsluna!

Check out all the reviews here http://www.registry-repair-software-review.toptenreviews.com/
I use SystemWorks 2005 and Registry First Aid.
System Mechanic is popular but I don't like it.
I have heard many good things about VComm's SystemSuite although I have never used it.
Why don't you google "systemsuites" or "PC optimization" for example and see what you find.

Might as well put my two cents in:

I also tried Registry Mechanic, but wasn't all that impressed.

About 15 months ago I came across and tried Registry Healer, liked it, bought it for $19 (two free updates since - the latest for SP2, which I have just downloaded).

It is easy to use, comprehensive and very thorough - and I haven't had a single problem, but full back-up is provided, just in case.

As an example of what it will do:

Today I uninstalled iTunes and a couple of other things I don't use/need ... it came up with 210 corrections of which it selected 185 for deletion.

There is an "expert mode" if you want to get into the registry and manually alter stuff.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
