Windows 7: Registry cleaners

I've used a Registry Cleaner (Uniboot) and it made a significant drop in performance and I am getting unwanted programs and ads.
CCleaner so far is the only safe registry cleaner I've tested from 50 registry cleaners.

Win 7 doesn't need a TuneUp Utility - it can speed up it self. If you want to speed up your computer, you need to upgrade decent hardware (i.e: 512MB or 1GB RAM, less than 1.7GHz). On the other hand, XP does.

Yeah, I currently use KIS 2011 and had to uninstall it three times so far since it seems to be not totally like 64 bit Windows, and it doesn't actually kill the boot time or registry so much anymore, so YAY!

The removal tools do get rid of the registry entries, hence, complete removal....

I been using KIS for years and have never had major issues. Runs win7 64 without a problem here.
Registry cleaner = Ccleaner.

I find Auslogics registry cleaner/defrager works well for me, I have also used Ccleaner in the past as well, which also works well, I think the Auslogics registry cleaner works a bit better IMO

CCleaner Disk and Registry tabs, followed by Auslogics Disk and Registry defraggers has worked for me for over ten years on hundreds of installs without issue.

However recently I've been testing Puran defragger which is immensely impressive, especially it's Intelligent Optimizer on the Additional Operations tab. It handles it all during the boot time defrag. Awesome tool.

I echo the voice of the people here. CCleaner is the best choice while dealing with Registry.

I donīt try other alternatives (well, one or other program in one or another moment), but CCleaner is small, fast, and never bring me any problem.

I used Reg Cleaner and Reg Supreme Pro on dozens and dozens of XP builds over the last 8 or more years years without a single issue.
Unfortunately theses programs aren't compatible with Win 7.

After installing a fresh copy of XP, moving files over from external drives, installing all programs and getting a new machine just the way I wanted it and after making an image I would then finally run Reg Supreme Pro in deep scan mode.

The program would usually find and safely remove around 900 invalid registry entries without a single hitch.

I really wish that the author of Reg Supreme Pro would build a reg cleaner compatible with win 7.

I have yet to find a trustworthy deep scanning registry cleaner for Windows 7 and that's a shame.

It's freeware, which time and again is the best choice. You tend to pay for useless, smothering bloat.

Open source and smaller freeware-driven companies are often where the real Genius hides from being Corpulated and enCorpsed.

I would run from any program with "Reg" in it's title. Most of these are sales scams without a synapse of genius. Stick with proven CCleaner.

I agree with this statement, but including CCleaner as well. There is no need for any registry cleaners
