Computer Q&A Board  /  Questions  /  Total deletions less than what Regvac was finding

While Regvac is running I often see hundreds of items being found, which in earlier iterations and maybe even as late as a few months ago, that is what Regvac would actually report as being deleted. However I noticed recently, for instance, today, that Regvac had found at least 54 items while the scan was still running (I had to step away for a minute, so there could have been even more) and when I came back, it had finished and announced that it had only found and removed 20 items.

When RegVac deletes an entry from the registry, it looks to see if it actually was deleted (sometimes Windows or other software blocks the deletion), if it was not deleted, it does not count it.
