Unable to delete invalid registry entries
Hi, a novice here need some help on registry clean up. I started to use
Registry First Aid, but there is a lot of entries that have not permission to
delete, and they keep growing, now is more then 700 entries.

I read about the UAC, admin account / std user account, registry permission
etc. And I'm get more and more confuse. BTW, I am the only user for my PC. I
am runing Vista Home Premium SP1

Thanks in advance.

RE: Unable to delete invalid registry entries
BTW, I also tried the method of go to cmd and run as administrator, ie log
off then log in as the adminstrator, then re-run the registry scan. The 700
over entries still have no permission.

Re: Unable to delete invalid registry entries
OK will try during the weekend, but would the online scan get the permission
to remove those entries? Sounds a bit worrying some online program get into
your system registry....
