I want to know how to scan the registry for errors, this includes:

1. All directories to scan and how to know that the key is causing any problem, causing the computer to run slower or that the key is useless such as information about uninstalled software.

2. The fastest way to scan the registry in C# or VB.NET

3. The types of the problems that can be found in the registry keys and how to detect them.

It can be done through easily by using any registry optimizer software than by using c# or vb.net for which you have to write hundred lines of code.

@ged325: Yes thats good, but I want answer for the third point I mentioned which is:

3. The types of the problems that can be found in the registry keys and how to detect them.

I need to know what types of problems, for example: missing shortcuts, etc.. I also need to know where to find those problems.

Thanks,
