Microsoft tool to check windows Xp registry problems
Posted on 2013-01-15
Is there a Microsoft tool to check for registry errors on a Windows Xp Professional SP3 machine.
I am getting occasional Access viaolation errors citing BORLANDM.DLL as the source. Web searches reveal various registry scanners which perport to solve this problem, stating that over time registry errors build up and that fixing these "errors" will likely cure the problem.
If there are indeed registry errors, then is there a Microsoft tool that I can use to scan the machine and indicate what is wrong and even fix it ?
The machine in question runs 24 hours a day and has been running for 3 years or so and has indeed slowed down substatially since it was first installed and as far as I know suffers little maintenance exept for software application changes for which I am responsible.
