Default Looking for a registry repair program.

I'm looking for a free registry repair program that acutally scans and fixes for free. I'm not sure if there is one out there, everyone I have tried will only let you fix only a few errors then you need to buy it. I'm hoping there is one out there that is totally free.

check these out. They are both freeware:

http://www.download.com/Registry-Wiz...ml?tag=lst-0-3

you could also do a repair install If you have a windows disk.

I've found RegistryFirstAid to be very helpful.

thanks for the replies guys. Although my registry did need a cleaning, I found out my problem was with IE, so I switched to FireFox.

Good move. Some would also suggest Opera, which i find that i like it, having used Firefox for years now, though the mouse commands are weird.
