Ignore Lists (Registry Keys to exclude):
Registry Fix can sometimes identify keys associated with installed
programs as being problems, when in fact they are legitimate keys. This
is because the keys do not pass Free Registry Fix's criteria for being
passed as valid, and this can cause the operation of the program which
relates to these keys to become erratic.
Registry Fix allows you to create an 'Ignore List', where you can
list the keys identified as problems by Free Registry Fix and instruct
the program to bypass them in future scans.
• Add - allows you to add a new registry key to your list.
• Edit - allows you to edit a exist registry key in your list.

Lists. To remove items from this list, select their check boxes and
