    What is "ProxyStubClsid32?

    Hi all,

    I've spent the weekend trying to tweak my PC running Win Me. I've used various tweaking utilities; PCMedic, toolbox, PC1check, etc. I've managed to clean out the registry except for eight TypeLib problems in the registry. the eight entries look like this:

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Interface\(79eac9ca............) ProxyStubClsid32.

    What do these entries mean and how can I delete them. Thanks.

    This is what M$ says it is, what exactly it means I dunno .

    This explains it a bit better - appears to have something to do with opening a new Window.

    BTW, be sure you backup your registry before hacking into it .

    I think what its trying to say is don't remove them
    It seems to be a way of tying legacy code using IID's (not familiar with them) into the current standard of using CLSID's to refer to DLL's in the registry.

    Not really referring to a new window, but its necessary to be in the regentry for this particular application.

    I don't think you'll get any more noticeable performance by removing them though

    I don't know what will happen if you do delete them, but I can't suggest it
