I'm assuming it does, since it's Windows.
I know on a Windows PC the registry can get kind of full of crap after a while that makes the computer run slower etc. and it's good to clean it out with CC cleaner or a similar app.
Does anyone think that may apply to Windows Phone as well? Like, if you install a bunch of apps to try them out, then delete them, are they leaving crap behind in the registry?
I wish Microsoft would just evolve beyond the need for it altogether. I've never heard anything good about it.

Yes, the registry Is there. That being said, XP (and earlier) gives the registry a bad name. There is really no reason that a system-wide settings list is inherently bad.
That being said, it's my understanding that Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 apps are not allowed to touch the registry because they are completely sandboxed.

- phone identity
- location services
- photo, music, and video libraries
- data services
If anything, it could be the malware.

I don't know what it was than. I swear a wp8 box popped up on my screen after being pushed to like 8 porn sites that mentioned the antivirus thing. It wasn't a website popup. I'm trying to force it to happen again .

I guess that's possible. I didn't think it would react the same way on wp8 since its a new os. Because it actually said Microsoft antivirus something has detected a malicious something on the site and then the red IE warning page popped up.
