I was wondering whats the consensus on using N360's registry cleaner. In the past when I've run it, it rarely finds any "issues" at all. Now from this past weekend, I installed a bluetooth usb receiver which worked perfectly....til i ran the cleaner. It found a bunch of issues, all with "broadcom entries. i clicked "fix". the very next reboot the bluetooth is broaken with errors popping up when starting windows. I guess i am asking if it's ok to just not run the reg cleaner? or is it possible to have the cleaner not "fix" those issues? the reg cleaner has hardly ever found entries before. I've installed the BT several times just to see if it was a fluke, it worked great until i ran the cleaner. thanks for any info PS. CCleaner doesnt list the broadcom entries as problems only n360 does

I have been using Noorton Security Suite ( a clone of N 360) for over three years and have never run the Registry Cleaner. I do not use reg cleaners except as a last resort - IMHO they can do more harm than good - if not run for a specific problem. Also unless it has changed, N 360 registry cleaner does not give you an option to delete or not to delete - it just deletes it (another reason I do not run it on my systems).

Thanks for the reply yank!! that is good to know!! yeah, it seems N360 will just delete entries and not even back it up so i can see how i could get into some trouble. being as it has never really found anything in the past, i will just skip using the cleaner. and enjoy the bluetooth:-) thanks again!
