Yes. CCleaner's registry cleaner doesn't work very well with Windows 7. It works well with XP, but not Windows 7. I HIGHLY do NOT reccommend ANY thord party cleaners/ optimizers. Use the built in disk defragmenter with disk cleanup, and run regular virus scans along with disabling startup items in msconfig, then you should have a fast Windows 7 installation all of the time.

Sadly, my CCleaner registry backups can't be found, and I've been using it since I installed Windows 7 a few years ago. Is there a way to make system restore restore back to the first CCleaner registry clean without messing with my other programs? Or is it better to attempt a repair install??

Also, a quick question about SevenForums, how do you get both picture and text into your signatures, I saw the add image by URL/Upload box in user settings, but somehow it didn't work.

I'm sorry, but no. You can't restore back to the first registry clean unless you have a restore point. Even if you did, you would lose all of the programs since then. I recommend that you do a repair install: Repair Install
Also, I was able to upload a pic for my signature from my pc, then I put the picture below the words in my signature.
