I've used RegCleaner for a few years now, always worked very well. However nothing works as well as a fresh format.
Back when I was using Windows98 SE everyone thought I was nuts, becuase I formatted at least once every 2-4 weeks. However this just seemed necessary to keep Windows running stable and working at a good performance level. (Somehow my dad has been running the same windows install for 5 years now??)
With 2000 Professional my formats spread out farther, but were still needed.
I now run XP professional, and my formats are pretty much only needed when doing upgrades.
Still like my fresh formats though, everything seems to run faster.
I ran regcleaner 3 times and found 650 problems all together before nothing was found.
Then ran regscrub and found 121 more probs first run, 8 the second run. After i was done fixing everything, my computer is deffinately running faster. Apps open up alot faster and whatnot. And my popup problem has stopped(hopefully)
Very much appreciative of the info, Thanks a billion.
