How can I reduce the size of SYSTEM.DAT
I have discovered, through experience, that once SYSTEM.DAT exceeds 1/4 ot real RAM then POW!! Windows fails to start. missing files like VXD etc.

I have tried Microsoft Regclean .. No
I have tried CleanReg .. Better than above but fails to free space

Anyone out there who has a utility that can reduce the size of my System.Dat is worth their weight in gold.

For attached files pls send to

Thanks for reading this

Alan

I use FIX-IT Utiliities 3.0 by OnTrack. Has excellent System, Disk & File Maintenance utilities particularly for the Registry (Cleans as well as defrags). Hope it helps, good luck.

As this was a very impotant question to me a posted it on both Win95/98 and Trouble shooting.
The answer I accepted was as follows

Ok, with Windows 95 I am going to save myself some typing (since all I manage to do is fat finger the kb anyway) and give you an addy to go to:

it will give you the information you need to compact your registry.
