      You mean the Windows system registry? Depends on the version you have but generally you can edit the registry..

      The program 'regedt32.exe' is used on XP - HOWEVER - you can seriously damage your operating system if you simply start messing around with the registry - always make a copy of the registry first and if you don't know what you are doing then don't edit it!!!!!

      I suggest you search for tips on editing the system registry before trying.....

      I reckon this is like asking if it's possible to cut a tree down with a chainsaw and then asking how it's done ... If ya don't know how to cut down a tree, then being told how to operate a chainsaw probably will not end well ...

    I use CCleaner to clean my registry from time to time.

      This is a very good tool.  Norton System Works is also very good as is TweakNow...

        Not a huge fan of Norton software. It tends to be bloated and expensive, but then again, I've not used Norton software for years now.

            Not really a fan of any anti-virus software really.

            I just manually get rid of viruses when I get them (which is never).

    Not sure what the OP means since he/she didn't elaborate enough.

    Do you want to edit your registry, or clean it? CCleaner has a built in registry cleaner.

    I suggest that you read detailed tutorials before going through with editing your registry. If you're not very computer savvy, get someone else to edit it for you.

    i would not recomend playing with regestry unless you know what you doing. to access the regestry start -> run -> type regedit and hit enter, this will get you to regestry editor
