I have a tool that scans(parses) the registry for invalid entries and deletes them.
I looked for things that are considered as "invalid registry entries" and found many things that comes in the criteria, like following-

Missing shared dlls
Unused file extensions
activex issues
COM issues
class (Invalid or empty class) issues
MUI cache
etc.

My question is that how can I determine wheather an entry in a registry is invalid or not according to above criteria.

u cant, thers no 'invalid/valid' entry. U just can scan some keys wich points to files, and test if file exist, no sense!

It would be nice to have an assembly version of a registry shrinker. I'm tired of all those boring HLL .NET things that need a 50MB .NET download just to run.
