Specs: Windows XP
how do I compact the registry on my computer? I just bought System Mechanic. I wonder if it compacts my registry? I am always having the "this program is not responding" box showing up, can anyone help with that?

✔ Best Answer
not responding usually means you don't have enough resources. Then you load a program like system mechanic that uses resources.

You are headed in the wrong direction. Programs like this usually end up destroying your installation.

Sure hope you have a backup of everything. At the very least do a system restore point and backup the registry before proceeding.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

Compacting does just that. It doesn't affect the registry function in any way but simply pushes it together rather like defrag. It will not cure your issue.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Thanks for your reply. When I turned on my computer today, it was soooo slow.
I uninstalled System Mechanic and it just took off. Seems like I had to run a scan on it everyday and it would work better, but only after the scan. I was getting the Program not Responding before I put it on my computer. How do I fix it?
Any help is greatly appreciated.

It's possible the program is corrupt, try uninstalling, then reinstall it. By the way, what program is giving you that error?

I get it for no apparent reason. I can be looking at a page and it just freezes. When I try to move on or exit, it displays Program not responding. I think it i usually Internet Explorer. Sometimes I get a whole row of boxes in the system tray that
are from the task manager. Talk about a pain! I usually have to just manually shut my computer off and I hate to do that that way.
Thanks so much for your reply and I am grateful for advice and wisdom.
