    I’m just paranoid abt stuff like this – it may damage more than it fixes 😉

    But I’ll still give it a try and report back.

    Sounds like an interesting program. I think the best way to stay away from registry problems is to use software virtualization tools such as Altiris. It works great and never messes up your registry.
