RegScrubXP is a free reg cleaner I've used without any problems. The user interface isn't up to much but the author seems to have solid programming background- important when you let somebody muck around with your registry.

jv16 PowerTools is a full set of tools to keep your computer up and running. Until now your computer might have been the one who was in charge, but with jv16 PowerTools you can take control. The program contains all the tools you need for cleaning, controlling and tuning up your computer. Including a registry cleaner, duplicate file finder, temp file finder and much much more! Installation note: Do NOT run the program before you have copied it to its final destination. If you move the program after you have used it even once it starts asking for a password and you must re-install the program before you can use it again.

I personally find that EasyCleaner from ToniArts is a very good free reg cleaner.

Download section and than the registry cleaner.
It is small, fast, easy to use.


I didn't try the reg cleaner since I use XP, however I did try the MSN remover. That piece of software is VERY deceiving. Whoever made it, does not know the difference between MSN messenger, and windows messenger. If you look at my screen shot, you will see that it says it will remove "MSN messenger"  I ran it, and it destroyed windows messenger. Two different programs. No big deal for me because I use imaging software. Who ever made the program needs to be smacked up side the head with a rolled up newspaper and told to do their research!!

So what is the problem?
You didn't read what that util does.
That is your mistake.
It clearly says what it will remove.
It removed exactly what it said that it would remove.
If you don't know the difference, than it is not the fault of the util.

And if you have problems with it, contact the creator of the util.

It clearly says "use this util at your own risk"

The program says it removes MSN messenger. Are you as ignorant as the guy that created the software?  MSN messenger, and windows messenger, are two different animals.  Yes Eddy I read what it would remove. It said it would remove MSN messenger. It remove Windows messenger. 

Anyone who creates software and has a warning "use at your own risk" is a back yard programmer. They don't want to take flack for their own stupidity.

I have no intention of contacting the creator, because its garbage software. Like I said, I made an image first.....so its not an issue. I was just trying to warn others that may not be as prepared as I was.

I also think that they have no clue what is the difference between MSN messenger and Windows Messenger. 2 completely different programs. Guy or group of people who made that removal utility should rephrase some parts of their text... If it removes Windows Messenger and not MSN or backwards, they should make some corrections. Here is a quote from one web site, telling about some differences between MSN and Windows Messenger:

Quote
MSN Messenger is an instant messaging client for Windows (and some other platforms), targetted at the home-user. It offers a lot of personalisation options (adding your own emoticons, backgrounds, etc) to customise your chatting experience and express yourself like you want.

Windows Messenger is another instant messaging client but runs only on the Windows XP platform and later, Windows 2000. This IM client is targetted at corporations and offers a more clean, pro look. Windows Messenger is more tightly integrated with applications such as Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Outlook Express, or the Remote Assistance feature of Windows XP. It can connect to the Communications Service and Exchange Instant Messaging.

Either can be used to access the same .NET Messaging Service contacts, so if you're chatting with your friends and family, it doesn't matter which one you use and changing from one to the other is not a problem. You can even combine the use of both -only one will run automatically on startup- but not with the same .NET Passport.

Uh-oh, that's not all yet. On Windows 2000 and Windows XP there is a service, called "Messenger Service", often unfortunately referred to as "Windows Messenger", that is used to present what can best be called network messages to a machine's user. This is not an instant messaging application, but rather software that runs in the background, listening for incoming messages and popping up a very simple box containing the message when one arrives.

For example, in a corporate environment when you send a document to a network printer. The messenger service handles the pop-up message that the printer sends back when it has finished.

Unfortunately the Messenger Service has been exploited by spammers to pop-up unwanted advertising messages on unprotected machines on the internet. Microsoft has decided to remove it from future versions of Windows, but in the meantime you'll have to remove it yourself if you want to get rid of the annoying spam. Read the related article about Messenger Service Spam for more instructions.
