Windows 7: I used a Registry Cleaner

It seems to do a really great job of uninstalling cleanly and it shows you all the leftover files and gives you the option of deleting all of them. Seems to work way better than the standard windows utility.

So far I don't use any registry cleaners. Time will tell though.
Revo Uninstaller is a very good and safe tool. I use and a lot of us here recommend it.

To have problems is not unusual and many are the machinations of many users, but if you seriously believe that your problems came from CCleaner, then by all means contact them. They will be more that glad to hear from you.

I use CCleaner, not to "clean" the registry but to let me know what some programs have tried to implant into my registry. I've detected malware simply by running CCleaner and Auslogic's registry cleaner.

When I remove a program, then I expect the program's uninstall feature to clean up behind itself. Most don't with Microsoft being one of the very worst offenders.
Do you use the CCEnhancer as well???
Add more programs to CCleaner
