Sam, be aware that many of those registry cleaners are scareware in some sense, because most of them make the registry more cluttered than it actually is. I certainly won't run that program, but I can imagine that those "dead links" (which are no links at all) may for example result from the "most recent files" list that you find in programs' "file" menus (like in OpenMPT's), where you have opened those specific files and then deleted them afterwards. THis is not harmful at all - as I say, it's just scaring the user. Windows itself doesn't do such a stupid thing!

I'm getting a bit fed up with arguing all the time, so I rest my case.

You shouldn't let Internet people annoy you, they're the stupidest kind there is. On the other hand, I think it's important with an open mind and an open discussion. It's perfectly fine to be wrong sometimes.

Yeah, I agree with Sam. I wanted to share this article with you guys, have no intention of arguing. Any goal of arguing is to change the opponents position into thinking you are right. I do not want that, in fact - there was no statement over which to argue put forth. Any technical arguments on what is better organized - Windows or Linux - to me seems out of scope of one forum thread on a non-programming related site anyway.

I chose Linux and it is fun to me - I am not a Windows basher. And apart from philosophical reasons, I also left Windows because I personally needed Linux's abilities to work with sound which allow you to route audio from one app to another easily. Mac OS also has some of those possibilities, but not all of them and macbooks are also to expensive for me.

Then you should maybe stay away from the internet?
