I believe the program that you are referring to is called Reg Cleaner. Regedit is a program that part of the Windows Operating system, that program is meant for manual adjustments, these tools below are meant for clearning up and fixing errors in your registry.

Here's some links:

How to activate task manager on my pc


It can be done easily by editing the registry. I will try to explain in detail. Follow these steps

1. Check that your PC is virus free. Install Antivirus program if required.
2. Regisry is enabled. Goto run command from start menu OR Press Win key+R and type 'regedit'. It would show up registry.
3. If registry is enabled you can edit it.
4. Open notepad and paste the following four lines

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
"DisableTaskMgr"=dword:00000000
"DisableRegistryTools"=dword:00000000

5. TYPE the file name ENABLETASKMANAGER.REG
6. Choose 'all files' option from 'Save as type'
7. Now you should have a registry editing patch. Please note that its extension is .reg
8. Double click the patch to add it to registry and task manager would be enabled.
9. Alternatively, you can download PROCESS EXPLORER, whichis a replacement of task manager from internet. It works even if the taskmanager is disabled.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need any further clarification/ help

B.A. Regedit


Any of you that do websites and like to open .html and similar files in notepad to edit scripts, this is the coolest windows registry edit ever you can download the zip file with the .reg in it (run it and it automatically adds itself to your registry) or do it manually.

CODE
http://www.geocities.com/ichbindeingott5/winxp-notepad.zip

Manually: regedit and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\*\Shell add the key "notepad" it's default value should be "open with notepad" now, under "notepad", add the key "command" it's default value should be (with the quotes) "c:\windows\system32\Notepad.exe" "%1"

ok, exit regedit and go right click on ANY file...
you new option: Open with notepad.

I know this one works on XP and 2000, you can PROBABLY enter it manually on windows 9x, but I have not tested that.

I know maybe not everyone cares... but this was fun for me because I love tweaking my computer and it makes some web design stuff easier for me :D

My computer is slow and choppy. Is there anything I can do at home to speed it up a little?


depends on what computer you have. you might wanna check one of those reg edit cleaners (be sure not to take a virus though). check if you have enough hardrive space (should always be ~15gb on your main partition). check your startup items, and remove those you dont want to. Check your drivers, if they are up to date (videocard driver ie).
and what always helps @ me, is a complete reinstall of the computer.

btw, what are the spec's of your computeR?

Spysweeper program will not run


What are the Errors?
Here is a quick one to try.
Remove the prog again & then clean your registry.
If you havent got a reg cleaner Download Ashampoo3
(google search) Its a free 10 day trail prog but its good enough for what you need.
After cleaning Reinstall your spysweeper.
Your reg has probally still got some old info from the last installment of spysweeper & wants cleaning.
