Does anyone know of a good pc registry cleaner?
Self | 3/26/10 | Self

Posted on 03/26/2010 12:20:20 PM PDT by Dem Guard

I was using MaxSecure's Max Registry Cleaner until I got this global warming support email from them today. Their gone from my home. Any others worth using?

(Their disgusting email) This Saturday, the symbols of our civilization, iconic buildings and landmarks from all over the world, will stand in darkness, to help bring to light one of the biggest challenges of our generation-- Climate Change.

The 'Earth Hour' that began as a show of solidarity against climate change has today become a global movement. On March 27 at 8.30pm, switch off your lights to support action against climate change.

Call for a climate deal that keeps global warming below two degrees and pledge to reduce your own carbon footprint. You can urge your employer, employees, club and your community to do the same – that is the essence of mass action by ordinary people and its cumulative power cannot be overstated. We need to keep global warming as far below 2°C degrees as possible to avoid dangerous runaway climate change. Internationally, we need world leaders to deliver a fair, effective and binding new climate deal.

This year over a billion people from over 90 countries and 900 cities will come together to mark the Earth Hour. Max Secure Software, once again, has pledged its support to the world’s largest global climate change event.

On Saturday - March 27, 2010, Max Secure Software would switch off all lights in its offices between 8.30 PM and 9.30 PM - the designated 'Earth Hour'.

Join the 'Earth Hour' by switching off all lights this Saturday - 8.30 PM - 9.30 PM. Just for one hour.

Best Regards,

Max Secure Software, www.maxpcsecure.com

(not that I would encourage EVERYONE ELSE HERE to do something like that)

Sophos has a free root kit cleaner.

CCleaner.com has a registry cleaner as well. It is also free.

Yes - boot an Ubuntu cdrom and type “dd if=/dev/null of=/dev/hda”

Now - don’t REALLY do this - it’ll wipe your disk, which from us Linux bigots would be your first step to redemption.

Does anyone know of a good pc registry cleaner?

Try Gentoo or Slackware Linux.

...quickly running away, you know someone was going to say it eventually. :-)

I'll defer to the serious answers elsethread.

It’s been several years since the feel good liberal has gone out to sleep on the sidewalk with the homeless. Do we even still HAVE homeless people anymore?

It is a pretty stupid marketing manager that would send something like that out. I suspect he will end up being a
“former” marketing manager once this gets out to their base.

You must be young...you type faster than me! (See my subsequent post). And I thought I'd be the first under the wire.

If I had a nickle for everytime I reversed the arguments to the dd command, botching if and of, you know the rest...

I've been mulling over this "lights out for the earth" movement. I'm seeing on TV ads with young kids saying it's simple by pulling a string.

Wouldn't it be great to have linkage to aborted feti? You know like every time you turn off a light, an unborn child dies? It's pretty crude, I know, but there's got to be some linkage to the event that would counter all this Gaia worship and climate change garbage which is currently based upon institutional lies.

I've used Registry Mechanic for years. It up to v9.0 now. If you follow the link, there is a free download somewhere.

My daughter uses ccleaner, as many above have suggested, and she really likes it. It's got both a cache cleaner (and other PC accumulation files) with the registry fixer.

The Max Registry Cleaner had a yearly subscription. It was rated rather high on a chart I saw a year ago but it had the annoying habit of starting a full scan every time I turned on my computer. There was no way of keeping it from doing this in the settings so I had to cancel it when it started or the dam* software would slow my computer down to a snails pace. I would run a scan every few days anyway, but this was rediculous.

Advanced System Care, Registry Booster & PC Medkit are all top of the line... Advanced System Care has a free version that works great, presenting no reason to purchase the full version.

No mandatory donation for cclean. The screen pops up, but you can continue to download without giving them any money or info. I just downloaded it.

This is the one I donwnload. I did go ahead and subscribe to the service for the extra features. I was amazed at how many more errors it found that Max Registry Cleaner didn’t.

Yes, reformat the hard drive and reinstall the operating system. Cleans that nasty, corrupted registry every time!
