  1. Few weeks ago i got a meesage from WINDOWS MESSENGER that my registry need 2 b repaired.

    wat r the tools available?

    Wat happens when ur registry is broken/corrupted?

    Will formatting the drive or system help solve the problem?

    Hi,

    That`s just spam/spyware trying to get you to buy a program

    or install some spyware.

    The only program you ever need for the registry is CCleaner (Issues tab). It`s free.

    Remember :It`s a jungle out there

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Click start/run and type services.msc into the run box and press the enter key.

    When the window appears, maximise it. Double click on the following services(if there) and select stop if they are running. Set the startup type to disabled. Click apply/ok for each service you disable.

    Messenger

    Close the services window.

    If that doesn`t solve your problem, please post back.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
