There are four files that I need to download but I keep getting an error message that windows cannot download the file. The files are .pbd. It looks like I have registry errors? How can I get rid of them for free; really free?

What are the errors you are getting when you try to download those files? Also, what is a .PBD file? Must be some custom application?

Just so you know -- the registry will not prevent you from downloading anything. Something else is going on...

I don't know off the top of my head what a .pbd file is, but as an answer to your original question, CCleaner is one of the best registry cleaners I've found, and it's really free if you don't want to pay. You can download it from download.com or the developer's web site, piriform.com.

If you do try CCleaner, click the "Registry" button on the left hand side of the GUI, then click on "Scan for Issues" in the bottom center, and once it's found everything, click "Fix Issues" in the bottom right. You may have to scan and clean it a couple of times. The software will let you save backups before it cleans it up.

Good luck!

CCleaner for sure: http://www.groovypost.com/tags/ccleaner/

Before you ever use a Registry cleaner make sure you back it up first! CCleaner gives you the option before it makes any changes to it.

Or you can manually back up your Registry as well: http://www.groovypost.com/howto/microsoft/how-to-backup-restore-registry-in-windows-7-or-vista/
