    I've use regclean, reg cleaner, regedit, sys mechanic etc. on a
    regular basis to keep my platter clean. I just d/l'd and used RFA, the
    unreg. version. It sets a limit on how many fixes you may use per
    scan. I understand this. This next thing, however, cracked me up. If
    you want to dump the toolbar/taskbar icon, you have to be a registered
    user? When you try to uncheck the option it tells you basically you
    shouldn't do it since it's monitoring your system to make sure it's
    optimized (hmmmmm...), but if you pay, you are allowed to become
    exposed, vulnerable, unoptimized, unmonitored and free to get slimed.
    This seems backwards unless yer being monitored for other stuff?
    Unless I'm mistaken, I found something called 'resellerate' had been
    installed simultaneously with RFA. I looked in the config file to see
    if there was anything to set to 0, but didn't find anything I could
    recognize. Anyone know how to dump the monitoring short of buying the
    program or dumping it?

    p.s. my reg is 12 entries smaller after fixing 275 thinghys. Is this
    because it adds entries to backup what it has deleted? Or does it just
    modify stuff? I guess I grew up on the net when things were free....
