Yesterday I ran RegVac under Windows 7. I got the final message "200 entries removed". Being curious I tried again and got the result "194 entries removed". Hereafter I tried again and again getting always the same result "194 entries removed". Why is this? Are there any problems with Windows 7 for RegVac? rawana75

Hi -- all I can really tell you is I get different amounts of entries deleted each time I do a cleaning but I will look closer -- I only run Windows for websites & presentations -- so that machine is turned off a lot. I use Ubuntu 9.04 for all web surfing as is safer in my opinion [and many others] & looks & works the same. Youtube, Facebook --- etc.
Windows 7 does not allow a lot of entries to be removed from the registry even though they are bad. It looks like in your case the number of entries that Windows 7 does not allow to be removed is 194. Other bad entries that are found are removed so you should still use RegVac to remove the entries that Windows 7 allows to be removed.
