Windows 7: Registry Cleaners

Thanks Vince. I'm still in the camp of CCleaner has never hosed a system. There are always combinations of things done that lead to the odd problems. I thought I had seen a report once, but in questioning the poster it came out that he had run several cleaning/optimizing software in a row before rebooting. CCleaner was just the last in a string run. In fact, it was finally admitted that CCleaner just found a missing reference (no doubt just removed by another program).

I'm still personally going to only recommend CCleaner, and warn against registry cleaners. Even if it was a "do as I say, not as I do" thing. It's like an ad for a medication on tv..."possible side effects can happen, including headaches, disorientation, suicidal thoughts, and in rare cases, death."

It's not a good idea for your sanity to look too closely at the side effects of the meds you are taking.

Still waiting to see a single documented case of CCleaner messing up Win7. Blog posts from before Win7 was released and which are debunked in its own comments section are less than persuasive, as are the "I heard it from a friend who's gotta friend..." reports.

This is an unfortunate urban legend and slur on genius that stops here, where the Win7 rubber meets the road.

I have been using Ccleaner for years, all without any notable detrimental affects, and use it similarly to Joshadot.

95 posts and I am fairly sure no one has changed their minds. Just one of those issues.

You are spot on. We are all secure in our opinions.

Registry Cleaners?
Is a registry cleaner necessary? On almost all of them I've used, it detects tens or hundreds of "problems" that need to be fixed, on freshly installed systems too. And after fixing them, if I run another scan, it finds even more! :confused: Does it make my system "faster" in any noticeable way?...

I know what you're thinking and I completely agree with you. No one should ever use these types of programs. They cause more problems then they solve. However...On occasion I get re-curious as to the state of this type of software and every couple of years i'll re-visit them to test their...
