Beware of Registry Cleaners…

I recently helped my parents with their slow computer by running a registry cleaner I found on the internet on their computer.  As it turned out, it seemed to fix their problem and sped things up remarkably on their system.

Thinking I could make my home computer work better, I downloaded it and ran it on my system as well…bad idea.  I didn’t make it any faster and to top it off, my network connections went haywire and ended up killing my Remote Access Server that I used to connect to my home PC when I’m at the office.

Luckily I found this which fixed the problem.
