Hi Sword,
I understand that if Stalkersoup is loaded and problems arise, then a fresh install is needed; but I am unclear just how to clear a registry without affecting other non-gaming programs that use the registry. Please explain if a previous version has been uninstalled, how to prepare for a fresh install ie which registry entries may need adjustment. I look forward to your reply, thanks and regards, TrueB

Above post:

First start by using the dedicated StalkerSoup Uninstaller, which you'll find in your Start/All Programs/StalkerSoup menu (if using Windows 7). This menu will have been created for you when you installed the game

The Uninstaller should get rid of not just the program files, but most of the registry entries associated with the game that attach it to Windows

I say 'most of', because there may be some stragglers left behind by a faulty install, or installing to the wrong place - and this is where a registry cleaning tool comes in useful

Personally I use CCleaner and Glary Utilities, both of which are free to download and use. Between them they should find anything that shouldn't be there, including leftovers from other uninstalled programs. After running CCleaner I always restart my PC before running a secondary cleaner

Please do not download any free cleaner unless it's 1. been recommended to you, and 2. being downloaded from its maker's website, otherwise you can leave yourself wide open to malware

I'm not going to explain to anyone how to do a manual registry clean, basically because if they have to ask, they shouldn't be doing it. Think of it as someone unfamiliar with tools asking how to use a chainsaw... affraid

Not in the slightest. All modern cleaning programs are designed to work with Windows 10
