There is a tool called scanreg supplied with windows since XP, i believe.
Never had occasion to use it, give a search on vista scanreg and see what you find.

Hello and welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums.

For starters, you might like to edit ut your e-mail address before the Spamming brigade gets hold of it.

If there is such a utility in your system, it doesn't belong there and is third party rubbish to be avoided at all costs. Microsoft offer the facility to edit the Registry but in terms of cleaning it, I take the view that it's either best left alone or lightly skimmed by a programme like CCleaner. The Registry takes up very little space so there's nothing to be gained by removing old entries but that's all CCleaner does.
