They're Back....

I regularly run two registry cleaners. Reg Supreme always finds at least 25 ?problems?, which I then Fix. After this, I run RegScrub XP and it finds 7 or 8 more problems which I Fix. After a day or two, all of these problem items are back ? and I have to remove them again. I guess I have four questions: Why do these items keep coming back? Why doesn?t one registry cleaner catch them all? Is it safe to go into the registry and delete these items? Would this keep them from returning?

You do not say whether these problems that you find are the same as the those you found previously.
If they are, it could possibly be that you are not completing the removal process correctly within the registry cleaners. Check the operating instructions thoroughly to ensure you are doing everything correctly.
Also, it is possible to run two regcleaners side by side and obtain different results, although the programs are doing the same thing their configuration is not the same.

You may also have viruses and spyware on your computer.

What anti-virus and anti-spyware checks do you make?

I'm running AVG, Spybot S&D, AdAware SE, Win Patrol and SpywareBlaster, and I keep them all updated. I also have ZoneAlarm running. It appears that these are recurring items, and I suspect that some of them are appearing as a result of certain programs loading at startup. I have not tried to delete any of these directly from the registry. I don't know if that would be safer, or more permanent than using the Reg Cleaners.

Jdorisco,

Don't bother at the moment about the complications of using two regcleaners. Simply start with one and don't use the other until you've explained your problems.

You're running regcleaner #1 and it deletes 25 entries. Then you run #1 again and it finds them all gone? And the next day the same 25 are back again?
Consider the probability they are needed by some program, as you suspect. Then simply not deleting them solves your problem. Maybe better trust the programs you run than the regcleaner you run.

A few things to try:
- Post on the forum what the keys are. Somebody might recognise them.
- Run teatimer from the Spybot 1.3 package. As far as I've read it monitors registry changes and informs you about them. But there are lots of other registry watchers around.
- Experiment with MSCONFIG to stop programs running at startup, and see if you can link the registry entries to certain programs that way.

Best of all, maybe, stop worrying about the registry. On my work, I've got a Windows XP machine 3 years already, and NEVER run any regcleaner, without any problems. At home, I run them maybe twice a year (if I've got plenty of time and nothing else to do) and then it finds some entries to delete, but nothing really serious or pressing.

Hope this helps.

I just ran RegSupreme again and it came up with 92 items which are identified as "Problems". I'm starting to think that these are not real problems, and that I shouldn't worry that they keep re-appearing in the registry.

Jdorisco,

Anything with a "recent file list" or "MRU" (=most recently used) doesn't matter at all. It just shows you did something with a file (like osama-bush.jpg) and decided to delete that file afterwards. Deleting a file removes it from your hard disk (completely or to the recycle bin) but it doesn't remove the reference to it in a programs (or Windows') recent file lists.

Say you've got a Word document, and save it. It will show up in Start>Recent and the 4 (or 9) files in the Word File-menu (to quickly reopen it). If you delete the file those links will stay around. All that can happen is that you get a "no such file" or "file not found" message if you try to open it. No real problem indeed, I should say. And it disappears with time because other files will replace it.

About the same goes for the entries you disabled with Starter. If you remove the program you don't want to run, the reference to it is still in Starters disabled list. Starter, I think, has an option to fully remove it in stead of only disabling. But of course you can use a regcleaner or regedit to delete it manually (and in both cases it shouldn't return).

I don't know what MUICACHE is (and in google I find questions about it, no answer) but anything with cache is temporary and managed by Windows. No need to panic about it.

Then there are a few keys from Mozilla. As long as that program functions correctly, I wouldn't mind about them.

Hope this helps.


Kees
