Clean ActiveX issues?

Specs: Windows XP Home vers: 200, 480MB RAM

In trying to speed up my very slow running computer, I followed some recommendations posted here and downloaded CCleaner. While I have cleaned many areas, it is still not performing much better. However, I have not yet cleaned a long list of objects found in the registry -- Active X and Class issues. It seems this could likely be the area causing the sluggish operation. How safe can I feel in cleaning this area with this program? Could really use some advice from any that have experience with this. Thanx.

try this free active x scan and remove all it finds:

I'm not too familiar with that part of crap cleaner, you may want to try regscrubxp which is listed on a page when you click on the red link. It's real easy to use

Thanks for the recommendation. I Did the free ActiveX scan as recommended. It didn't find anything. I am sitting with this long list of Active/Com issues that CCleaner found.

When I google ActiveX/Com, I see the ads for other highly recommended registry fixers. RegCure, Registry Fix, Registry Mechanic, etc. and here, regscrubXP. I just don't know if any will do any better or worse than what CCleaner has already found.

did you use regscrub yet?

I wouldn't try any other trial software, because they will give you false positives to coax you into buying it so it will remove that stuff

I haven't yet. But I have to run now and may not get to do it 'til tomorrow.

I guess the real question is, let's say that reg scrub comes up with the same, or many of the same ActiveX/Com issues as CCleaner (after hitting the "Analyze" button), can I feel confident -- do you feel confident -- that cleaning them will not cause unintended problems in the registry?
