If I were to use one it would be CCleaner but how many OP's would actually know how to use it and not damage their registry?
If they are asking they probably used one on XP or read somewhere else it should be done.
They have no clue to its use most likely.
Next stop Repair install or Reinstall.
Just because it is best does not mean it should be used by amateurs without directions at least.
How many will actually read them?
So I will continue to suggest not to use ANY
registry cleaners on Windows 7.
