After playing the game on line I do a Registry Mechanic scan, and every time I ahve 2 things from the game that are set to delete.
There both under this heading.
C:\program file\Ubisoft\IL2-strumovik 1946
One is PF_COOPERATIVE, and the other is PF_DOGFIGHT
I repair it every time after playing but is this normal for this to happend ?

Simple mate - DOnt delete them after a scan.

The program thinks they are junk entries - they are not.

Everything you install adds a regitry key. SOme add a lot.

So dont repair them then.
Just leave them as is.
Thanks for the heads up.

It really doesnt matter either way, Ken.

DO which ever is easiest.

If you do delete, I am assuming IL2 just adds them again when you run it, therefore no problem.

Reg entries are nothing to worry about, unless they are from Virus's, SPyware etc.

The reghistry can get very full with junk entries, slowing your computer down a bit. Although Reg mechanic programs will help with this, a good reformat is the best thing to do every 3 or 4 months.

Copy everything you want to save to a DVD, and then reformat, reinstall windows, update it and reinstall your progs.

I have everything on a disc so that I can do it in a couple of hours, and most of that time is spent watching TV as I wait for the comp to finish loading/formatting/reinstalling http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

A reformat every few months beats any Antivirus/Spyware prog. No Antivirus is 100% effective, relatively unkonwn viruses and trojans will still get past it, and a programmer could make a trojan for his own use that would never be picked up if it doesnt get popular.

But yes, most games these day do.

Norton Ghost or similar imaging software would cut down your waiting time to about 10 minutes. It costs about $80 and best, it can save all your settings. Once you've set your system up exactly as you like it (including all profiles for games) you just burn an image, and keep putting it back.

So its sound like this is normal for this to happen with games.
Wich is what I was trying to find out.
Every time after playing on line I do the Reg. scane, and every other week I do the spyware/addware scan to clean out the cling on's.
Its my gameing computer so I dont need to do it very often.
I use my Compaq to do other things on line like type this post LOL.
I have every thing on disk too.
I learned a very good lesson after getting nailed by the sasser worm a few years ago, and before that haveing a booster volume thing happen with Windows XP when it 1st came out.
Ree doing every thing after both of those things was a major pain in the you know what.
Had a hard drive crash once too.
Not good.
Tanks for the heads up http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

As you say it is a concern... my next PC i intend to fit hot swapable hard drives in one of the bays. so i can pull out my gaming drive and put in my personal drive etc.. so one pc many drives http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif that way i can keep stuff that never goes on line separate as you do http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

This way I can tailor it..... or should that be taylor it, so i will not need firewalls galour on a drive that just has a bare bones xp installed and my games......

but where i need all of the protection on say a surfing drive, then it will have it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
