    Are there any good ones that do the job correctly? I can't seem to find a decent one, all are test them out, you have 19,000 errors fix them for 97$ which sucks ass. My main comp is riddled with reg errors and virus'. Kids been playing on them along with other family members. I had zone alarm Firewall and AVG but AVG seems to pick up on the non-virus' and let the harmful ones in. Any help appreciated!

    I only use two things to keep my PC running smoothly:

    eset NOD32 smart security and CCleaner.

    Everyone has their own opinion as to which AV is the best. NOD32, Kaspersky and Norton 360 2.0 are all highly recommended.

    I can tell you from vast experience that AVG is notorius for false positives and is generally scorned by expirienced users.


    CCleaner is one of the best free tools that I have found. It has a registry repair function that is made-for-dummies simple. It's effectiveness in that regard is debateable but I have never had any trouble with it nor has it ever harmed my OS in an attempt to repair the registry. I can't say as much for the others that I have tried.

    I am using hijackthis to clear my registry. Its a very good software but it will require some knowledge of windows registry. Otherwise you can use windows registry cleaner.

    Actually I lied. There is one more thing that I am currently using but it has nothing to do with the registry. It's a HDD maintenence tool that prevents (or at least limits) defragmentation in REAL time. Diskkeeper Pro. Definitely worth looking into.

    Just an FYI. There is a rise is fake virus programs going around. So make sure that if you are scanning your computer it is with a real software downloaded from a legit site.
