any suggestions would be appreciated
I'm assuming that you know the hierarchal structure of the registry. That means you can't just reattach shit anywhere. From what you describe, its at best a registry defragger...deusexaethera said:That said, I'm fond of a little program I discovered called NTREGOPT (do a google search) that rebuilds your Registry from the ground up to optimize the the internal structure of the registry file. (For a visual aid, think of a tree with some long branches and some short ones, then prune the long branches and attach the pruned bits to the short branches, so all the branches are the same length when you're done.)
I know that it's presented as a hierarchy in REGEDIT, but considering it's a database hive that needs to be quickly searchable, it's most likely stored as a sorted binary tree. Binary trees get lopsided when they get old, unless they have built-in optimization routines, and as evidenced by the improvements I see when I run NTREGOPT, the Registry does not have those routines.fly said:I'm assuming that you know the hierarchal structure of the registry.

Bitch bitch bitch. Why should I think your opinion has any merit if you can't explain it? To be fair, though, you did explain it eventually.whup said:God I hate having to explain myself when I don't think I need to! I love the classy attacks because I'm 07 too
CCleaner as an example does quite a few things automatically to clean your registry:
- Missing shared DLLs
- Unused File Extensions
- ActiveX and Class Issues
- several others
This works perfectly and I've never had an issue from this - yet you state this is "impossible". Hence my curt one-worded response.
Though, I'm not sure what some people's expectations are of registry cleaning.
There, I'm sure my reasoned response changed your mind and I'm not wasting my time at all.
