I ran both my registry analyzing programs, RegCleaner and Easy Cleaner and it was suggested that I no longer require the following registry entries. I have not a clue what purpose the first two serve, the Cryptography “catroot.” and a (.jar ) which it said was a( java archive file) that is associated with my Lotus application. The DXTRANS .dll, according to MSN’s Knowledge Site “article 221526” said that downloaded versions or IE 5.5 don’t always contain
this entry, but it didn’t say if that was good or bad. They seem to be associated with service pk 2 for IE 4.0. I am not sure about the VBSCRIPT.dll either other than it has caused some difficulties and there is a fix from MSN available. Do you agree that some or all or these should be removed?

I used those two programs before in addition to Norton 2001 Registry Sweep utility to make sure I get everything.

Normally I will just delete whatever the 3 programs suggest, keeping my fingers crossed all the time.

Done it hundreds (literally) of time without any hiccups. Even if there is problem, most likely Windows will still boot and you can try to hunt down the bugs and exterminate them.

Worst come to worst you just spend about a hour or two reinstalling Windows and everything else.

A clean registry means a lot faster and much more stable system.
