  1. Download ccleaner, and run the registry tool. You may need to run it several times to resolve all the issues.

  2. Treat lightly in registry land. One false step can crash your entire OS.

    Very true. Ccleaner is very reliable, but does give the option to back up the registry before making changes, if you want.
  4. I downloaded Grary Utilities from cnet found over 700 registry errors.
  5. Is it back to normal now?
