What is a registry cleaner finding (obsolete, orphans, etc) that does not show up on the registry scan part of the optimizer? I probably don't understand what the optimizer is checking the registry for. Thanks

Invalid keys that are removed from the registry cleaning part of the application are entries in the registry containing information about COM and ActiveX objects. These objects are parts of programs and when you remove the programs these keys sometimes still exist. Optimize safely removes these keys if the COM object no longer exists. Areas of the register we look for the invalid keys are:


Invalid Class IDs(CLSID)

Invalid Program Identifiers (ProgID)

Invalid Type Libraries (TypeLib)

Invalid Interfaces
