Windows 7: Recommended Registry Cleaner for Win 7 64bit

to those anti registry cleaner posters

try using use a portable reg cleaner (there are a number of free portable reg cleaners so you don't even have to buy or install it) and see how many entries are marked for deletion

have a look at the flagged entries and see if there is reference to things no longer on the hard drives, hard drives or pen drives no longer installed or connected, reference to optical drives once used to install programs

would like to hear your findings if you will

in just running a portable program, you will likely find registry entries pointing to the drive (the usb you used) and/or the program itself once the program is shut down and the usb drive removed

windows registry bloat is inevitable
its your choice whether you want to try and deal with it

as for installing a suite of programs on a fresh OS install and leaving it as is get real
I assume we are dealing with real life and personal computers here
even if you do not install any further software, your registry will on goingly fill up with crap in time through general use, updates, deletions etc etc etc

end of rant

cheers

For those of you who think Registry Cleaners do not work , download RegShot 1.8.2

Start this program, take a first snapshot, then run your registry cleaner, then take a second snapshot and then Compare

Try this with CCleaner as well just or fun.

BTW,I worked 6 years in IT at a public library and we were being asked to install Office, program updates, and new software that we had purchased.

That's a real work environment.

The only good registry cleaner is a fresh install of Windows.
It'll fix anything that might be a real problem...
Including any registry errors the cleaners may have caused.

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?...
