    Scam registry cleaner is what that program is, because defragmentation and optimization of the registry is never necessary and registry cleaning, defragmentation or optimization doesn't affect your pc performance.

    Not to forget to mention, a registry cleaner may remove too much which could cause a pc to crash or give other performance problems.

    If you'd like to clear the registry from errors, I advice to use Ccleaner, but cleaning the registry should never be necessary.

    When did the problem start?
    You could try to use a backup created by Registry Recycler. I assume it removed too much.

    yes I tried that, It did not work. After I turn off the pc and turn it back on I have to visit the firewall settings to get the apps to open

    Check the rules of your firewall and make sure its not blocking the apps.

    What are the name of the apps on your computer that don't run if Windows Firewall is turn-on?

    If you can attach a screenshot that would be helpful.

    Have you tried allowing the specific app through the Firewall? Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Windows Firewall\Allowed apps

    Have you tried resetting your Firewall? Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Windows Firewall\Restore defaults
