    Registry Cleaner is a neat tool when the standard uninstall process fails.

    I am wondering if there is a way to track changes made to the registry
    while removing a given entry with this Registry Cleaner?

    Thanks

    Where is MS reg cleaner in Win XP, SP3? If not supplied with installation,
    where in MS web pages is it downloadable? Have searched MS, no result. Do
    you mean that MS, not third parties, have supplied this app?

    db Flightless Bird

    when you run the microsoft
    online scanner

    it will then provide a listing
    of results.

    if you look carefully at the
    listing you will see small
    drop down arrows

    these will expand the line
    items and show you
    additional details.


    however, if you are seeking
    a method to do a before and
    after a registry cleaner has
    been executed,

    I believe you will not find
    a convenient method to
    do this.

    I believe you're correct. That was one of MS goofs. They bought out the
    company developing One Care.
    It is no longer available and has been replaced by Microsoft Security
    Essentials.
    Registry cleaners are nothing but disasters.

    Hi John,

    The registry tool I use, JV Powertools, saves the removal items in reg
    files, and dates them, so you can see when and what you've done.

    Only in the hands of those that think they're a cure-all, and don't have
    the knowledge to know how to properly use them.
