    Reg Cleaner?


    Hi,

    Is it safe to run CCleaner reg cleaner option, though my lap is running fine but it displays alot of reg issues on scan?

    Thanks.

    Your going in circles.

    Bleach bit?

    I would not use the registry cleaner part of CCleaner. The registry really does not need cleaning. Those so called issues rarely amount to anything and "cleaning" the registry can potentially create problems.

    I run mine daily without issues. CCleaner is very mild with reg cleaning. I do NOT recommend any 3rd party cleaners though, such as Registry Mechanic.

    Reg cleaners are useless and not advised.

    As with any system cleaning product make a system image backup before first use or at least a system restore point and also use Ccleaner's reg backup. Then if you run the cleaner and experience subsequent problems you can at least restore things to how they were.

    If you experience no problems you can try running it again with additional cleanup options. If you then experience problems you would need to figure out what setting caused them and avoid using that setting.

    As for your other thread on BleachBit - the same logic applies.

    The winapp2.ini file used by Ccleaner and Bleachbit is not the same. On my machine additional cleaners have been imported. It's possible to use Ccleaner's winapp2.ini file in BleachBit but then you might as well stick to Ccleaner!

    In the screenshot it shows all winapp2 files on my machine. The smallest one is the trimmed version that's had the cleaners that i don't need removed from it! That enables faster loading and operation.

    It's certainly possible to cause problems by running BleachBit with all checkboxes selected. It probably wouldn't brick your machine but it would be hard to undo some of the changes. With both programs you will often see a warning displayed if you select one of the more advanced options. Don't use those options unless you understand what they do.

    When using Ccleaner choose the option to save and it will save the things removed and you can restore them if need be. I keep the saved clean ups about a week or so and then remove them.

    Alexay it's good you asked the question before using the program.

    Feel free to ask questions at any time. One question can save many hours of frustration repairing a system.
