I am running MS Vista sp2 on an Acer Aspire Intel Core Duo E4700 @ 2.6GHz I have McAfee Virus Scan Plus which shows no problem but the IOBit Reg. Cleaner identifies and supposedly cures 100 odd HKEY issues per day but to get help from them I would need to buy the license. PC Fix 2010 seems to identify 5000 odd registry errors but wont fix them unless I buy the product.

I am aware that an unscrupulous software firm could identify issues just to get me to purchase their product but some queer things are happening. Occasionally I get a Windows message "Failed to register windows class" . I get slow running occasionally and sometimes the screen freezes and requires a reboot.

The system seems to run ok for a while and as I paid for the McAfee and its updates I kind of trust them. But they don't want to address any problems identified by another firms products and in fact want me to remove the IOBit and PC Fix products.

I dont even know what these HKEY issues are but I can try to capture them and paste them here i8f that would be of help to anyone.

Thanks to anyone who can offer help.

Set IOBIT settings to ignore the HKEY issues if the system runs with no problem. better yet, my suggestion would be to try this registry cleaner.

Hi Badge,

I have downloaded ccleaner and got 12 issues cleaned in the registry. I will post here if anything happens in the next few days.

I dont what the occasional error msg "failed to register windows class" means but will watch out for it.

I may scrap the IOBit Toolbox and the PC Fix software if this continues.

Thanks for your help.
