BSOD While Running CCCleaner's Registry Cleaner

I've got a BSOD while running CCCleaner's Registry Cleaner/Fixer. I've included the Minidump File below.

- Windows 7 Ultimate x64
- OS and Hardware are all less than 3 months old.

The dump you've provided does not show a faulting driver name. The reason it's BSOD'ing when using it is probably because when you click fix or clean, whatever it may be, it's most likely deleting an important registry file to a program that is running at the time, or an important registry file in general.

Regardless, I would never recommend using a registry cleaner, especially CCleaner's registry cleaner unless you're having issues with a specific registry file and you're 100% sure you're removing the correct file and just in general know what you're doing.

If you ask me, registry cleaners do more harm than good! Just don't use one, you don't need to.

Should I use a Registry Cleaner?
Running Windows 7 32-bit operating system on Gateway GT5622 desktop computer. Event Viewer reports errors 7026, 7003, and 7001. The description for these errors is misconfigured system files. Should I use a system cleaner to correct these errors? :confused:

Finalizing my upgrade from vista 32 bit to Windows 7 x64 Ultimate, but I need a native 64 bit reigstry cleaner. Apparently 32bit cleaners are unable to recognise the whole registry that windows has, so it may cause more harm than good. Could some recommened one that they are using with 64bit OS
I used a Registry Cleaner
I'm running Win 7 64 bit. I researched and then purchased Ace Utilities, which Cnet gave 5 stars to. I used it, and also used it's Registry Cleaner. I don't notice that the cleaner did any harm. What do you think of Ace Utilities' Registry Cleaner, or Registry Cleaners in general for Win 7?...
