I use regvac since xp, works on 7 . I haven't had any problems. Create a system restore point.
ccleaner cleans up temp files, I rarely use it because it erases history.cache
, password files, game history. Regvac is free but ask you to buy.

Read the quick guide to CCleaner
and the check boxes documentation page. Ifyou don't want it to clear your cache etc., you can just use the registry ccleaner by itself instead. I also find that the tools section generally loads faster than Windows' Programs and Features or Add/Remove Programs functions, and accesses the same uninstallers. The Startup section also appears less daunting than msconfig's for most users. I have it installed on a usb stick and use it regularly on older computers at work

Hi, I use Auslogics Registry Cleaner.
It's free, works on Windows 7 64bit, and you can restore your last clean....but I've
never had to do that.
You can download it from here:

Linux CENTOS 7 / various Windows OS'es and servers

Hi all
Why on earth do people insist on using these tools -- eventually they only lead to tears.

If your registry needs "cleaning" then the ONLY safe solution is as a previous poster has pointed out is a WINDOWS NEW CLEAN INSTALL.

In any case if you follow these simple guidelines you should never have registry problems.

1) Before installing ANY software - Image your system (that's why I'd always keep an OS on a separate partition to the data etrc).

2) install the software.

3) if it doesn't work restore the image from the backup -- no messing about with "Un-installs" etc etc.

For people with more time etc I'd use a VIRTUAL machine, install and test on that if possible and then if OK install on your real machine --still of course taking a backup image BEFORE the install.

Taking these image dumps with decent imaging software such as ACRONIS (or even Windows 7 itself) doesn't take much extra time and saves a lot of problems.

How do you know if malware / spyware or worse isnn't added to the registry by these so called "cleaners". Avoid like the plague.

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?...
