Having problems with your Acer Aspire One A150-1006 Notebook ?

RegGenie I just installed a program called RegGenie to scan my computer. Apparently it found 371 errors in my computer. However, it asks that I pay and buy the full version to fix it. Is there anyway that I can fix these things myself or another free program that I can use? These are the problems it says I have...

Answers :

I also installed RegGenie, as my computer system (Vista) is running really slowly, and my CPU usage is often at 100% even though I don't have much open. Apparently it found 1,122 errors, 900 of them in 'unused registry keys', so I hit the "Fix" button. I was somewhat dismayed to be informed then, and only then, that there was a $40 charge to fix. I exited, and uninstalled the program, but before the uninstallation could take place, I got a pop-up saying I could now get it for $20. I exited the popup and the program uninstalled. I then ran a MalwareBites deep scan, which told me I had one infection. A Spyware Pass... (word??) from... guess who... RegGenie!

\015\012I ran several other spyware and botwares, all of which came up clean. I still haven't solved my problem of the high CPU usage, but thought I'd share my experience of getting an infection from RegGenie.
371 errors in the registy is not too much to worry about when using a registry cleaner and would not slow down the computer significantly.

Unless of course they are duo to a virus or spyware or other malicious tools inserted without your consent.

The first thing to do with a slow PC is to run a virus scan and then an anti malware scan. These you can do for free although it is strongly recommended that you have a reputable paid for antivirus software installed eventually. (I'd recommend Nod32 others may say some other one, it's a matter of taste)

Go to housecall and run a free scan and fix anything it finds wrong.

Then go to Malwarebytes download the free version and do the same (full scan)

These 2 are not replacements for having proper antivirus software installed but may be a quick fix while you find the exact problem.
