Default system mechanic

i got sys mech, and i want to clean out the registry. so i do a scan on the registry and a bunch of stuff comes up. my question is , do i delete all of them. there was like 158 items. how do i know what i can delete without messing up something? or will it only delete what i dont need.

System mechanic will safely delete ALL unneccesary registry entries and files from your computer. Just do what it tells you.

I dont think you should use that option, It could cause you to have problems with your connection.

Generally all any of the programs that promise to speed up your connection do is to change the packet size, which just makes sites eem to load faster, not worth it unless your on dial up.

I dont believe those settings should affect frame rate in any way, unfortunatly if there isnt an option to set it back the way it was, its prolly stuck that way.
