As a developer, you obviously do a system backup as those incremental backups are for mickey mouse users!

So.

Simply wipe everything off the hard drive and restore the lot!

Easy really.

Probably take you less time than fiddling around with the registry!









(What do you mean, "what backup?" ? )

heres a quote from the 'readme' with regcleaner

You should use RegCleaner because it's a good idea to keep the registry as clean as possible. Here are some examples to help you understand how RegCleaner can truly help you:

1. Say you've accidentally destroyed a nice shareware program what has a 30-day trial period. Later on, when you notice that it's been destroyed, you try reinstalling it, only to find out that you can't, because the program thinks that you're just trying to get another 30 days. If you first remove the program's registry entries, however, you may very well be able to reinstall the software and recover your trial period again.
