Default Recovery Disc

I recovered recently (if you haven't already read my last thread) and ever since, I've been getting lower free space readings and when I run RegCleaner 1.4, it went from 86000 keys that it went up to 124,000 keys. I'm not sure, but I'm beginning to think that some of what I had before is still on the hard drive.

Is it possible that the recovery didn't delete everything on the harddrive before it reinstalled windows and all other components?

Would all depend on the installation method. If it were me personally, i would have formatted the HDD manually first and then ran the recovery disc, if you havent done that, then theres a chance you have 2 installations. This would probably explain the crap boot times your experiencing aswell.

I fixed that and now it's working quite well. Though I would agree considering the disk space and the key numbers.
