Unable to delete invalid registry entries

Posted: 10-01-2008, 10:07 AM
Hi, a novice here need some help on registry clean up. I started to use
Registry First Aid, but there is a lot of entries that have not permission to
delete, and they keep growing, now is more then 700 entries.

I read about the UAC, admin account / std user account, registry permission
etc. And I'm get more and more confuse. BTW, I am the only user for my PC. I
am runing Vista Home Premium SP1

Thanks in advance.

BTW, I also tried the method of go to cmd and run as administrator, ie log
off then log in as the adminstrator, then re-run the registry scan. The 700
over entries still have no permission.

OK will try during the weekend, but would the online scan get the permission
to remove those entries? Sounds a bit worrying some online program get into
your system registry....
