Has anyone ever used a free piece of software called "Registry Easy"? I was told it is a good tool to have for fixing registry problems. A friend of mine who is running Windows ME, yes I know that is a bad version of windows, was told it could fix a problem he is having with a "kernel32.dll error".

Have not tried it, and will not. It is red flagged from the word go.

Not only is it red flagged, it will cause more problems than you started with.
So called registry cleaners and registry boosters ( whatever that is supposed to mean ) are a bane to the community.

The best way to deal with 'registry problems' is to have a good imaging strategy in place.
