About the hard drive space. I dought it..


The registry is the hart and sole of your computer ,it stores all information regarding all programs install on your computer and tells windows what to do with each program .
Deleting any thing from the registry cand stop computer from booting or programs from working and no you would not save much space by deleting things in there my registry file is less the 1meg.,,,best to stay OUT!:)

thanks for your help
