Registry maintenance programs are unnecessary. Unlike earlier versions of Windows, XP's registry is pretty robust, and not so easily damaged. It also has little effect on system performance, contrary to all manner of reports otherwise, most of which are put out by companies/people that make/sell registry maintenance programs.

About the only sort of thing you ever need to clear out of the registry, are malware related items, which any malware removal program will be able to handle just fine. Further, if you adopt an "Anything but Internet Explorer" browser policy, your risk of a malware problem will take a dramatic nose dive.

I wouldn't waste my time or money with any of those programs. Even free is too expensive.

I totally agree with the above comments. Do not download RegCure as I learned the hard way that it deletes some registry keys for Microsoft Office 2003 and is hell to get things back in order. It is a known problem and yet no one seems to want to fix it. I have used Registry Mechanic due to a real problem and had no problems with it, but I just did a reinstall of XP Pro and have not put any registry cleaner on the system nor do I intend to.

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?
