I use JV16 powertools 2008 on my XP Pro systems to fix registry errors and alike and I am concidering using it on SBS 2003 but I am a bit concerned that server based systems may react unkindly to this tool.

As a precaution, I thought I waould ask here see if you guys had any experience with registry cleaners.

thanks

A server usually does not have repeated installs and uninstall of different software therefore, the registry is clean.

I would strongly advise avoiding tools that promise miracles cleaning the registry of a machine as it can cause you great headaches and time lost reinstalling the server and performing a disaster recovery procedure (all of these will reduce also the service availability).

Yes, I think your right. It was just my attempt to make the system run as error free as posible. I had a number of problems in the begining with a lrdd than helpful technician who insisted that he never uses wizards. Bypassing all of them and leaving me with the peices. I like the wizards as they are a no brainer. You cant go wrong really.  I have several issues with the server, bottlenecking, store using too much memory and some DNS errors along with now...spam filter issues.

I'm afraid that you won't get help from a reg cleaner that is not designed for Exchange servers...

You could use ExBPA (Exchange Best Practices Analyzer) for instance on an Exchange server to check for miss configurations.
