  1. Thanks for proving my point. You DID NOT turn off UAC. You need to turn it off to clean out the registry, after you've cleaned the registry then you can turn UAC back on. None of the other registry cleaners work because of the security features in Vista...AKA UAC. You can clean the windows / application files just fine by rt clicking CCleaner and selecting "run as admin". With my limited experience with Vista the only way I've been able to get CCleaner to clean up the registry is by disabling UAC. If you discover another way of cleaning out the registry w/o disabling UAC please post it.
  2. In Vista you need to turn off UAC (User Account Control). This function of Vista is an annoying new security feature that prompts you "Are you sure you want to wipe you butt?" anytime you do anything. To turn off this feature: 1. Open Control Panel > Security > User Accounts and Family Safety > User Accounts > Turn User Account Control on or off 2. Uncheck the Use User Account Control (UAC)....... check box 3. Reboot 4. Launch CCleaner and all is well, you should not have any problems.
