Hi there
if you need to clean your registry then the ONLY sensible solution is a Windows re-install.

After re-install just backup the OS before installing anything - only takes around 15 mins -- so if the software is no good or you want to get rid of it just restore the previous OS image.

(Keep the OS in its own partition - separate from your DATA such as music, videos etc etc).

Cheers

I've been using Auslogics BoostSpeed for quite a while now and it has never failed me. I've used just about everything in it and all seems to work fine.

Use Windows 7 manager. I tried Tune up but it detects less registry problem. Windows 7 manger is good

Cleaning your registry will cause all sorts of problems unless you know it inside out and get to choose which actions your cleaning software actually performs - and if you have enough knowledge to veto such actions; well you'd be doing the job manually in the first place, eh?

After you install Windows there is **NOTHING** more crucial than making a clean "Bare-Metal" backup of your system before you do anything more than set your preferences and load your drivers. You can do this using Windows Seven backup tools, or software like Acronis TrueImage etc. (There is also nothing to stop you making sequential backup images at various stages of loading your preferred software either...)

If you ever need to "clean" your registry, go back to one of your known clean drive images instead... how much simpler could matters get?

+1 Windows 7 needs no tweaking or optimizing whatsoever!

Just save a backup image for restoring Win7 if something goes wrong. And oon't forget to test your Image by cueing it up to see if it is detected and ready to reimage.

Boot from Win7DVD Repair console "Recover Using An Image" to see if it will autodetect your backup image placed in the root of your external drive, in it's own Primary Formatted partition on secondary HDD, or over network by passwording storage computer during operation and placing image in system root.

Make sure it detects the image storage location(s) and cues it up for imaging; browse the options allowed.

Keep the name the exact same. If stored in folders with others you can change the name, but rename it correctly WindowsImageBackup when placing it back in root for detection and reimage.

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'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?...
