Windows 7: Trustable Registry program.

Trustable Registry program.

Hi,

I would like to hear your opinion about this software: Eusing Free Registry Cleaner: Safely scan and repair registry problems - Spyware FREE.

Is this trustable/good?

If not, what is the best registry maintaining software? (defragment/clean unnecessary items)...

Martin,

Current accepted wisdom with Win 7 is to NOT use a cleaner.

If you ever think your Registry needs to be cleaned, repaired, boosted, tuned-up, cured, tweaked, fixed, or optimized it shouldn't.

In other words, injudicious use of "Registry cleaners" CAN & DOES cause problems.

IMO - there is no reliable way for a third party program to know whether any particular key is invalid, redundant or neither.
Some registry cleaners may not know for sure whether a key is still being used by Windows or what detrimental effects removing it may have.
This has led to examples of registry cleaners causing loss of functionality and/or system instability.


Should you decide to go ahead -
Make sure you have
1.a current System Restore point created.
2.a recent "Back up" of your computer- preferably to an external HD.

Hey,

Thx for your answer!

And the defragmentation of the registry? Is that a way to speed up my computer?
What is the best software for that?

Leave your registry alone. You wont get any noticeable increase in performance and you may make your system unbootable.

If you really must use a registry cleaner use CCleaner (download in my sig) and take the option to backup before deleting. But quite honesty win 7 does not need it.

No Registry program can be trusted. Playing around with the registry is completely counterproductive - unless you make manual changes and you know what you are doing. But always make a backup before you touch it - e.g. with Erunt http://www.pcworld.com/downloads/file/fid,30793-order,2-page,1-c,backup/description.html
