ๆ̢ ̗(Ӧ̮Ӧ)̢ ̗۶Thank you davehc, David and CountMike to have shed some light on the pros and cons of the registry cleaning programs and to have re-assured me that a clean-install would reset my registry free of any BS.
Sorry bassfisher6522 for the delay to reply.I have red somewhere that you cannot upgrade directly from 7 to 8.1; that you must to 8 first and then, to 8.1. My problem with that process is that my Windows 8 came from a free ISO from Microsoft during their promotion of their Media Center. They emailed us our personal key. But we had to install it before the deadline of that promo to remain free. Now I doubt if my key will work to even download the 8.1, but I will give it a try.

Thanks for your valuable imputs,
