Careful with this folder

I just d/l'd Cleanup V4.0 to try out. I noticed that it deleted a *.bak file I had in the %WINDOWS%\Repair folder. That folder is pretty much reserved for a backup of the XP registry files created when XP was first installed. It really shouldn't be touched in an automatic state.

On the same note, it is probably unwise to be deleting from the %SYSTEM32%\config folder either as that's where the active registry hives are held. Sometimes techs will leave backups in this folder which could help in a future meltdown.

You might want to conider this in V4.5+

Just my 2cents. Thanks for the fine program.
