I have been using RegVac for years now and have had no problems. I recently upgraded my laptop and am running Windows 7, I transfered my programs over including Office 2007, now after every time I run RegVac and start any Office programs I get a "Start up configuration" screen that takes several minutes to go through.
To fix the problem I have to go to run and type winword.exe /unRegServer , allow it to go through the setup screen, then type winword.exe / RegServer from the run again to fix the problem.
Is there some way to avoid this?

It is probably just one entry that RegVac is removing. If you find out which entry that is, you can select it in the Undo page and click on the Ignore button. That will cause RegVac to skip it when it cleans.
Here is what I have tired so far: 1. Made sure Word & Excel are working 2. Run RegVac and delete all 'bad' entries 3. Unregister & register Word & Excel so they are working again 4. Run RegVac classes cleaner to check for changes in the registry (it found 448 changes) Should I place ALL of them on ignore? This seems excessive.
Unfortunately, Windows 7 blocks some entries from being removed from the registry by RegVac. That is why it is finding 448 entries. It obviously is not blocking the entry that is giving you problems from being removed. This is what I would suggest: 2b. After number 2 above, find the undo file in the RegVac directory and rename it. Then do 3 and 4. 4b. After number 4 have RegVac clean those entries. 5. Then rename the undo file once more paying special attention to this file. 6. Run RegVac Classes Cleaner once more and compare the results with the previous undo file (it may be easier to clean the entries which will put them in the undo file and then compare the two undo files). The undo file from 4b should have the offending entry in it but the results from 6 should not. Hopefully, that will help. Please let me know what the bad entry is. If you cannot find it, you can try sending the two undo files to me and I will try to find it.
