My point in this situation is to defrag after you remove a program, yes, once would be fine in this instance, maybe twice. A proper defraged drive should get it done in seconds.

Whenever I advise doing it 3 to 4 to 5 times it`s for the people who come claiming their PC is running extremely slow and hasn`t had a re install in years and they do not want to re install

My Apologies AddRam I was only trying to make the point that to save space cleaning the registry is not the way to go. And I'm sorry but I don't need 5000 posts to voice my opinion.

In another place, the techs are very clear on advising anyone in that other place -- do not use registry cleaners. However, I also have been using well-configured, well-setup registry cleaners and register editors cautiously, selectively -- and like the others here -- have had very few problems.
A related aside: I do not compress or compact the registry ever.

AddRAM, did you ever try out Registrar Registry Manager? I have, it's pretty cool, I was able to root out license numbers no longer needed, and now the laptop I took to school only has free stuff on it.

Defrag (heavy) external hard drive or re-format
Hi, I carry out a regular defrag of my C drive and external hard drive regularly about once a month. The C drive is only ever around 5% fragmented but the EHD is around 30% each time. Would I be better to delete the back-ups I have, re-format the EHD and then start with new back-ups again ? ...

Windows Disk Defrag Doesn't Defrag
Disk defrag stops analyzing at 62% and doesn't go any further. So I downloaded Defraggler and ran it. It worked but it wouldn't defrag down to 0% fragmentation, It still shows 4% after defrag.
