computer question

I often get these "registry cleaner" popups that say that I am infected by something or other and I need to do this. It is free until its diagnosed, then it costs money. This is a scam right? Sorry, i'm a huge computard.

thanks

Are you saying you have the same problem on a non-Windows machine and are looking for suggestions or just telling us an anecdote for the fun of it?

dude, don't play around with registery cleaners. They have hosed too many non-techies. Just stay away from them. The benefits don't outweigh the disasterous effects if done wrong like unable to boot etc.
