I echo what Tews said. Win 7 does not need a registry cleaner. It handles the the registry differently than XP or Vista. Win 7 manages the registry quite efficiently.
Windows 7 does not normally need a Registry Cleaner. But every once in a while one comes across apps with poor uninstallers that leave behind entries after the apps themselves have been uninstalled. So you might get a popup at boot "so and so not found..." or something similar. I find it convenient to use a registry cleaner in such a situation.
Having said that, use a good uninstaller app like Revo. That'll mostly obviate the need for a registry cleaner and lessen the likelihood of any system damage by the Registry Cleaner.
