Registry Problems

Lately I have been having problems accessing programs, Documents, you name it. Even if i go to the location of the file and click on it a message will pop up like: Windows cannot find 'C:\Program Files\Napster\NapsterClient.exe' Make sure typed the name correctly and try again., (using napster as an example). I have even tryed changing the location of the file by going to properties but nothing seems to work. If anyone has and information about a way i can fix this problem it would be greatly appreciated because Internet Explorer is the only thing i can access.

and you..

can expect to have continued problems after you do what Grif said to do as long as you use Internet Explorer (change to Firefox) and P2P prgrams. So expect to run them daily just to stay ahead of them.

and life goes on...

Not advised.

The forums here are full of problems introduced by registry cleaners. Only those that sell them claim it helps.
