I know this is somewhat off topic, but many of the "locals" here seem very
knowledgeable, so I thought I'd ask:

Does anyone have a recommendation for a good utility to scan and clean the
XP registry, preferably a free utility? Any other recommendations for a
good system maintenance utility would be appreciated too.

Thanks!

John

VCom System Suite 5 has saved my bacon a few times and runs flawlessly on my
A7N8 Del with XP.

Have a look at jv16 PowerTools and see if it does what you need.

I use the Registry cleaner in System Mechanic - not free, though.

And, you can pickup ver 4 of System Suite on Ebay for a song, and it
includes powerdesk, the best file manager/viewer around. I paid $5
for my copy of ver4 of System Suite.

Great idea, Kyle!

Do you think version 4 is as good as version 5 of System Suite?

I've been using PowerDeskPro 5.0 (and earlier versions) for years and I
agree it's the best. I couldn't live without it. In fact, when I reinstall
Windows, it's the first thing I load.

From what I've read, there is little if any difference between ver 4
and 5, except maybe newer virus scan signature files, but I don't use
the virus scanner. I'm also a PD user from way back, when I first
read a review in winmag of PD. I recall reading a review of System
Suite ver 5 and the comment was: not much new in this version. Ver 4
works nicely for me on win2k, but frankly, I don't use it much, I
bought the package to get PD Pro and the file viewer capabilities,
hehe.

Kyle,

I recently contacted v-com's tech support to ask if there was a way to move
PD settings from one PC to another. There isn't, but the guy said a new
version of PD is on the way shortly. I can't imagine what more it could do,
but I'll certainly look closely at it.

I'll look at v4 of System Suite. I use AVG for AV, so I wouldn't need that
either.

I've used RegClean for years and it works fine.
