Of course it is...
I use Revo Uninstaller, but this is subjective...

I trust CCleaner. Have not tried others, but have not needed to....

I've had no negative effects from using CCleaner or Revo.

I used CCleaner in XP but had some problems in Vista. Will try it in 7.
Thanks for the reminding...

Me too, only after about a year or so after first installing though When it did a registry scan it frequently came back with 5000+ registry issues. I did go through with the result one day and oddly, it had deleted all of my admin tools
I made a restore point and registry backups just before doing it so all was good.

Seems to be working fine on 7 though.

I wouldn't use any of this registry cleaners at this moment, not until it's reliability is confirmed in Windows 7.
Revo is probably OK (so as Uninstall Tool, very good program, but it's not free), but I think that it would be smart to wait for release that will have official support for Windows 7.

Now, about these registry cleaners... Opinions about them are very different. Some would say that, for example, TuneUP Utilities is excellent application for cleaning registry, some others would strongly disagree and claim that it could ruin your Windows (not talking about Windows 7, but generally).

So, my advice is to wait a little, until new versions of this programs are released.
