Running Regvac (registered version) in Novice mode under Windows 7, Classes Cleaner finds 50+ bad entriesd but only removes 22 bad entries. Running it again immediately, it now finds 460+ bad entries but only removes 19 of them. It keeps going on and on like this. Whats up?

   Windows 7 blocks the removal of many entries even though they are bad.  RegVac tries to detect the blocked entries ahead of time and not put them on the list to be removed, but RegVac is not always successful at that.

Running Regvac many times still finds exactly 456 Classes bad entries every time, despite 18 or 19 of them being removed with  each run. After many runs that removed a total of some 200 entries, the 456 bad Classes entries remain undiminished. This is puzzling.

   As I said, Windows 7 blocks the removal of many entries even though they are bad.  That is what is happening.

Hi Ray.. it happens in expert mode too - is there nothing we can do about this? It seems crazy we aren't allowed to clean up our own computers?

Talk to Microsoft about it.  As I have said already twice before, Windows 7 is doing that.  I guess you could go back to Windows XP.
