Not sure how big a registtery file is or how much its used in a usual
session of XP.

So would their be any benifit in defragging it ??

The general idea is that they defrag the registry (Duh).
Does it help?
The general consensus I've seen so far seems to be, they help, but only
marginally.

Hi,

It is best to leave the registry alone. Most third party tools claiming to clean up the registry
etc. do more harm than good.

He's no asking about cleaning it but defraging it.

I have always had the nagging notion that it is rather odd to think
another companies' software can do anything to maximize, optimize, defragg,
or clean anything in a Windows OS...... Except for one; Linux can solve all
problems you might have with Windows....Tee Hee
