I've just re-imaged my hp lappy because of the problems outlined in this post
. I'm hoping that the problems were software rather than hardware related, and if that's the case, it might be malware related.
However, it occurred to me that there might be another way that I could have messed up my system. I use Ccleaner pretty regularly to clean up the registry, mostly a habit I developed on XP machines, and I've never had a problem. But I was listening to Leo LaPorte the other day and he said he doesn't touch his registry with cleaners because of the problems it causes.
What do you think? Is cleaning your registry a good thing or trouble in Vista?
