A small discussion on finding and removing problematic registry entries

Introduction

Over the months/years, rogue entries have made their way into my computer's registry to the point that I want to scream. Nothing miffs me more than to be browsing away and then find that some ActiveX or Java script has infiltrated my system, thus in/directly causing unwanted registry entries and unwanted files to lay claim to my computer. I have my IE settings pretty tight, but not to the point where browsing would be impossible. I get prompted for cookies and the running of scripts. I also have a popup-ad blocker. Even with all of that protection, the inevitable happens. Arghh!

All this aggravation prompted me to create an INF file that I could "run" on a routine basis to cleanse the registry of junk. The file started with but a few lines, and has grown to a several dozen lines of late. Thinking that others might benefit from this file too, I decided to share it. The problem I found was that some folks' definition of junk, or otherwise useless entries, is not the same as mine. If they were to use the file as is, legitimate entries might be removed.

Solution

One solution I thought of was to create a little utility that does nothing but look for those entries in the registry, and display them on the screen if they are present. It adds nothing, deletes nothing, just reads. By "scanning" the registry first, accidental deletions can be avoided. If the utility finds that certain entries exist, further steps can be taken to remove them (e.g., using the INF file). By modifying the source code, a person could very easily tailor it to their personal environment.

This utility was not meant to be a solution for everyone, as we all use our computer(s) in different ways. My attempt was to provide a (semi) useful utility, and demonstrate a quick and easy way of reading registry entries. There are dozens of bigger, slicker utilities out there that do this sort of thing and more, but I wanted something small and to the point!

In addition, I have also provided the INF file for removing those nefarious entries. You might need to tailor it, too. Take note that the HKEY_USERS entries will most definitely need to be changed to use your specific SID.

Here are the entries that are looked at:

Notes

Some of the entries referenced files on the hard drive. As you examine each of the entries, make a note of any files that are referenced, and deal with those files accordingly.

If you run a tight ship, you'll probably have a pristine registry with only legitimite entries in it. Kudos to you! Other folks are not as lucky.

Improvements

If a person deemed it necessary, this little utility could be expanded to be both a "reader" and a "cleaner." It makes a good starting point for a beginner. As if it's not mentioned enough already, remember to treat the registry with respect. One wrong move could mess up your entire day!

Also, if you have registry entries that are known to be nothing more than junk, send me a note and I'll try and add them.

Enjoy!
