Maybe you got a virus that changed the names of some DLLs in the System32 :s or CCleaner erased something important...

How do you know it is your registry?

Does it freeze when you try to run certain programs? Or is it every 5 minutes on the dot?

well i did a virus scan..no viruses.
when i downloaded a free registry scan there was 128 problems.
my computer is better thanks to CCleaner but it freezes every so often.

I don't trust much freeware, but CCleaner is amazing.

Like I said before, does it just freeze randomly? Or are you doing something specific?
Also, just wondering, what computer specs have you got?

download hitman pro 3.5 (http://www.surfright.nl/en/hitmanpro) it says things a little differently to anti-viruses in most cases.

"Registry cleaners" are useless. They sound useful to someone that doesn't know much about how computers work, but in actually they do almost nothing (they can fix a few very specific minor problems, but sometimes they even break more than they fix). A lot of times they're scamware, as well. Don't bother with them in the future.

CCleaner is an amazing program, not just for Registry cleaning (which typically doesn't really do much at all), Defraggler is a great program to have, seeing as the windows defragger is fatally flawed IMO.

I'd also suggest the program Malware Bytes, it does some pretty good scan-work, and misses things a lot of virus protection programs miss. Also, I would suggest Spybot Search and Destroy (Spybot S&D), it's a pretty good program that can keep viruses at bay, and if you dont have virus protection, I'd throw Avast! on top of that.

I use all of these, and they work great for me. :3

What was the name of that free registry scan?

This sounds exactly the problem I had a couple of months ago, maybe it's a ram problem like the computer's either using too much of it
or it needs more ram. Have you also tried the washer (windows washer etc.)? it washes through all the files and folders.
