I am having some registry problems and I would like to get a good tool that repairs, cleans and maintains the registry.  It has to work on Win2K Server and not require reboots.  There are so many choices out there, I don't know which ones are good or not.  I need a highly professional one that will not cause any additional headaches for me.  Our servers require 24x7 uptime, so I need one that will accomodate that.   Any suggestions?

Re-Install would be my answer, the registry is the brain of the windows OS, would you use a jackhammer for brainsurgery, that is basically what registy maintanance tools are. If your registry is corrupt trying to repair could make your server unrecoverable.
