Is Cleaners Registry Cleaner "safe"

Hi(Again)
Is there a Registry cleaner there is safe,what about Winferno Power Registry Cleaner for instance,And is Ccleaner safe if you use the default settings,what cleaners do YOU use(if any)to maintain the stability of windows 7,or to get a decent boot time;or what ever.
There is doubt about that the registry is filled whit "Things" you do not need,even on windows 7,what to do about it is another question.
On this Outstanding forum,i have got the understanding,that the most respected oppinion about maintance,when it comes to w 7,that the system maintain it self,and that the system tools is more than enough,Correct me if i am wrong.

Kind regards Asser

No registry cleaner is 'safe'. I never advise people to use a registry cleaner/defragger.

This is especially true if you are unfamiliar with the inner-workings of the registry.
Making changes to the registry can make your Windows system inoperable and there's really no good reason to tamper with it.

If someone is determined to 'clean' their registry, I strongly advise making a backup first!

Asser, this forum is littered with threads asking how to retrieve a system that has been wrecked by a registry cleaner.

We've all been down that road and learned the hard way that registry 'cleaners' often cause more problems than those they claim to fix.

Windows 7 is a good operating system that is best left to get on with its job without any 'help' from so-called registry cleaners.

Ccleaner is safe if used carefully, but it has been known to mess up registry settings if used without care.

As mentioned earlier in the thread, if you are adamant you want to 'clean' the registry, make sure you first create a restore point and back up the registry just in case things go wrong.

My philosophy is quite simple - if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

There really is no reason to use any Registry Cleaners. The registry is a collection of files that are treated like a common database of stored values. It is only accessed when needed, and since it is treated like a database, the fact that it "grows" does not slow down its operation. IMHO,it's not worth the risks taken just to "clean" the registry.

asser,

You just said on another thread you started that you were finished with registry cleaners. Take you own advice and don't use any.
