Registry Cleaners

Thank you gentlemen for your words of wisdom. I have downloaded the free version of CCleaner and on its first run, it found a whole lot of rubbish which I was able to clear out. Not being computer technically experienced or minded, I shall only be using the basic operation, running the cleaner, analyzing and deleting, that will do for me.

If I ever have any serious problems with my system, I will turn to Windows7 Forums for help because I know there an awful lot of you here who are very experienced and willing to help and for that I say "Thank You"

Regards,

Just remember that even CCleaners Reg Cleaner should only be used when there is an actual problem in the registry.

For sure, I will only use it, if and when I have to. Thanks again.

Yeah, I'd agree with that. I don't use it on a regular basis. I use it if there's an issue, or a failed app install, or if I remove some apps and want to make sure they are completely gone. Nero 7, for example, leaves plenty of junk in the registry when you remove it.

Ccleaner is safe to use since it creats a registry backup

I've always read good things about Ccleaner, so I don't intend on starting any debates. Anyone using JV16 Power Tools? I have been using them for several years, and have been quite satisfied. They always have the option of backing up the fixed/removed registry entries. It would be risky to not select that option! It also gives me about 4 different options of how thorough the scan is to be run, from safe to aggressive. I've found that it is good to run the registry cleaner after major upgrades or program uninstalls. That's when I find a lot of leftover junk.

This statement is for those who are not technical, or want to deal with potential problems that they would then need to repair or nuke and reload.

Yes, having the backups is nice,
but it is still best to avoid using it if not absolutely necessary.
Just because you can create a backup does not mean it will be a quick 5 minute restore fix.

Why create a problem if one does not exist.

not everyone will have good luck in restoring a damaged registry when windows will not boot.
Or the process can be lengthy and troublesome for those who have never done it.

Best to avoid the potential problems.

However, if you do know what you are doing, then by all means, have at it.
The best way to learn things is to break it and then fix it.

Finalizing my upgrade from vista 32 bit to Windows 7 x64 Ultimate, but I need a native 64 bit reigstry cleaner. Apparently 32bit cleaners are unable to recognise the whole registry that windows has, so it may cause more harm than good. Could some recommened one that they are using with 64bit OS

I used a Registry Cleaner
I'm running Win 7 64 bit. I researched and then purchased Ace Utilities, which Cnet gave 5 stars to. I used it, and also used it's Registry Cleaner. I don't notice that the cleaner did any harm. What do you think of Ace Utilities' Registry Cleaner, or Registry Cleaners in general for Win 7?...
