Getting Your Computer Out Of Trouble

Hi Neil,

I was looking through your blog (after reading similar on LIMARC's site) and wondered if you knew if there was a safe and reliable program to make sure the registry is not tainted with any malware. I have used Treatfire and Malwarebytes with good success, but neither said it went into the registry. If you have any ideas, I'd appreciate it.

Now, I have to remember to come back and look for an answer. ; )
