Burleyboy Posted July 12, 2006 Posted July 12, 2006 I was reading online and someone mentioned a registry cleaner that was free called regsweep, so I checked it out. Everywhere I checked the reviews were positive, and said it got all the bits and pieces others left, so I downloaded it to give it a try. I use Registry Mechanic and always thought it was pretty good at maintaining my registry, but regsweep found about a thousand invalid registry enries, so I checked the back-up before deletion box, and let it sweep them away. I guess it swept it too good, and some of those entries weren't so invalid. I rebooted and as soon as it got through a couple of passes of the loading bar at the Windows screen, it would go into an endless loop of restarts. I lost my raid and had to reinstall Windows. So much work. Has anyone else used this and had any problems with it? I figure since I lost my install anyway, I'd just put x64 back on a single drive, and save my other one for Vista, when graphics drivers come out. I can really feel the difference without raid0 though. There are good, free things out there, Avast and MBM5 being a few, but I'll stick to the old addage of "it's free for a reason".
