I first inquired about this problem some weeks ago, and have subsequently, tried numerous ways to clear these "issues" including "Dial-a-Fix" downloading "Registry Cleaners" checking the "Web" but nothing works. I have even tried to "Manually Delete" but they are not deletable this way either. I am very much a 'Novice" in the computer field - so very "plain English" replies would be appreciated.

 

 

I attach my "Issues" in the hope that this may be easier for someone to help me clear these problems up.

 

 

Thank you for your time

Eh, it's an image guys, here it is.

JacquiM, next time you run a scan, Fix selected issues.

 

Then repeat several times. I think they keep appearing because the 'issues' are currently being used by programs or being accessed by the computer in some way.

In my opinion, I think registry cleaning does nothing or very little to your computer's performance.

Thanks for answering, however, I have on several occasions done as you suggested, having seen "other people's issue problems" and answers, I did all my checks in "Safe Mode" in the hope that this would help. I ran "Antivirus, Spyware, Adware" etc in the hope that something would pick up and correct the problems.

 

However, I was wrong. The only other way that appears open to me, is to take it to a "Computer Repairer" and have it cleaned by him.

 

Thanks anyway

Hi JacquiM

 

Can you download the attached file and save it to your desktop, right click the folder then choose Extract All, open the folder and double click CheckKeys.bat, It will export the information from your registry and open the results in Notepad, Please post the contents of the Notepad file that opens back on here,

 

When you say you tried to delete them manually, what happened ? Does it display any error messages

 

Cheers

Many thanks for your help - sorry but apart from using attachments - I do not know how to send you the file - but have attached it - in the hope you read it.

 

In answer to your query about 'Manual Deletion" it comes up with "Cannot delete ????? - error while deleting key" - hope this means something to you.

 

Thanks

My Operating System is "Windows XP Professional" and I have been keeping it up todate with Automatic Updates. I am a One Women Band - with my Computer, so I am always logged on as the "Administrator".

 

 

Thanks a lot

The CCleaner screenshot shows XP SP2. The admin question is a very good one that needs answered because attempting to remove some registry entries on a non-admin account will typically fail and thus the entries will re-appear each and every time.

Hi JacquiM

 

The export missed a couple of keys but we can export that information abit later if needed, Can you do the same with this attached file, Save it to your desktop, extract and double click RunThis.cmd to start the script. It will reset the permissions to allow full control to Admin, System and Users on those keys then attempt to remove them. It will then check if the keys still remain and write the info into a notepad file which will open when its finished (And save into the RemoveKeys folder) . Please copy and paste the contents of the text file back.

 

Cheers

I am not too sure how to read this - but for me - it looks as though - if I did a CCleaner "Issues" scan I (Hopefully) should find that IPODService at least should have "gone"

 

Thanks again

Hi JackieM

 

Sorry for the delay I just noticed the reply,

 

Now Im out of idea's and the script didnt work at all :( the keys it cannot find were also not in the export and it seems unable to remove the other keys even after allowing full control to Admin and System,

 

Lets try it a different way

 

Download Reglite from Here

 

Install and run Registrar lite

 

on the Address bar at the top copy and paste

 

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\idcfile

 

then press GO on the right of the address bar, this will locate the folder and highlight it on the menu to the left in blue.

 

Right click the idcfile folder on the menu to the left and choose Properties, then click Take Ownership and press OK twice to exit the properties pane, then attempt to remove the folder by right clicking it and choosing Delete

 

Repeat the steps for these

 

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ComPlusMetaData.MsCorHost

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ComPlusMetaData.MsCorHost.2

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MailFileAtt

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\mapifvbx.object

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\mapifvbx.object.1

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SymWriter.pdb

 

Let us know if you can remove them after taking ownership.

IT WORKED!!!!!!!!!!

 

Many, Many Thanks - I followed your instructions to the Letter, had a few "hiccups" to start with - had to "delete" the CLSID's first, then the main item. Once I discovered that, I was "home and hosed".

 

I cannot thank you enough for your patience and understanding and your easy to follow instructions.

 

Have a lovely day today and everyday.
