Over the years, I have tried some registry repair products and found many or most cause as many problems as they may solve. Nevertheless, my nearly 3 year desktop appears to need a registry cleaning and/or repair. I have searched the internet for reviews of the best of the current crop and not surprising, each site touts its favorite as the best. As I recall, even Norton has had a product on the market.
It's funny that I have even inadvertantly tried some of those online scanners which purport to find thousands of errors, won't fix them unless you pay, and after sometimes difficult times uninstalling them, find THEY have left debris on the computer. (Just this morning NIS found something left over from a scanner.)
Since this group is as tech savvy as any I know, can you suggest a third party safe and effective registry repair product?
