Okay so I use the Registry Editor Called Eusing Free Registry Cleaner Found Here: http://www.eusing.com/free_reg.....leaner.htm

I'm on Windows Vista, and everytime i get these 19 error message

and when i go to delete them straight from the registry i get this error message:

Also: Would you recommend another FREE Registry cleaner for vista?

More than likely you'll have to disable UAC to delete. That's how it worked for me anyway.

Have you deleted registry entries before?

For other free registry cleaners, look for programs by Jouni Vuorio of 'JV PowerTools' fame.

I would stay away from the registry cleaning programs. I think they are highly over rated and unnecessary. The only time you should be doing anything with your registry is if a certain hack requires it, Or if you need to repair some damage.

Minimal if any system performance is gained ... in fact you're more likely to delete a setting which will make some applications not work.

If you feel the need to use one of these programs, make absolutely sure your setting a restore point and/or a backup. Also, make sure the program you use backs up what it deletes.
