Hello everyone!

Im trying to create a registry cleaner in Visual Basic 2008. Basically it should scan for empty registry keys and after the scan it should show the total amount of empty keys and below a list of them with checkboxes. The user should be able to choose either all or some to remove by checking/unchecking the boxes. Finally a button click removes the chosen elements.

This is a hard project, but I hope you can help me out!
Thanks!

Are you using VB.NET or VB6? There is a nice registry cleaner written in C# (which translates easily to VB.NET). You should check out their source code to see how they did it.

Your question as it stands looks like you are asking for someone to develop an entire application for you. This is not how EE is supposed to work. If you need help programatically working with the registry, then you could ask a question about that. If you need help setting up a listbox with checkboxes (which is really easy in VB.NET if I remember correctly) then you could ask that. If you just wanted a kick start in the right direction, then I hope the above link helps. Also check out:
