Registry Duplicates?

I have noticed that in the registry, under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, I have
literally hundreds and hundreds of entries that are in the form of:

eg1 - 'AppManager' and then one immediately underneath it as 'AppManager.1'
eg2 - 'AMOVIE.ActiveMovie Control' and then one immediately underneath it as
AMOVIE.ActiveMovie.2'
eg3 - AMtoolbar.AMtoolbar and then one immediately underneath it as
AMtoolbar.AMToolbar.1

They seem to have the same data withing the key. Is it OK to delete the keys
with the *.1 or *.2 as they have the same data and hence make the registry a
lot smaller?

Any help much appreciated.

Regards

I would leave it alone. Why are you even digging around in there? ARe you
having a problem?
