    For years I've installed RegCleaner on dozens of computers... from 98se / win2000 pro/ xp pro
    and never had a problem.... until now.

    Just did a 'Fresh' Install of XP-Pro and did all the updates I could get and of course my AV
    program.

    Now I installed RegCleaner and tried to run it and I got nothing!

    Open it several times still nothing....

    Opened Task Manager and it showed everyone of them running, but nothing would show
    up on the screen.

    Closed them all and did a rt. click: "Run As..." it still would not come up, but shows it's
    running in the task manager.

    Any body got any ideas?

    I'm the only user and most times I login as admin. (Auto-login)

    Uninstall RegCleaner, as it will probably screw up your registry. use Revo Uninstaller to clean up leftover files from uninstalls, and CCleaner.

    RegCleaner has a bad reputation. I've seen it wreck Windows XP on several laptops. CCleaner has all the Registry cleaning you will probably need fro Windows XP. For Vista and Windows 7, which may be 64-bit, I prefer the utilities from GlarySoft.

    I'm still using OleClean 1.5 on my XP machines with no ill effect, as well as CCleaner.
    I don't have any experience with RegCleaner though. I would still recommend JV powertools
    despite the naysayers.
