None. Just keep your hands off the registry. There is nothing to be gained and a lot to be damaged.

Win 7 does not need a registry cleaner. Forget all the "wisdom" you learned about XP. Win 7 is not XP and does not manage the registry the same as XP.

Win 7 is much more efficient at managing the registry. If you are very knowledgable of the registry, you can use Ccleaner to delete keys left over when uninstalling programs. However, these few keys will not make 1 millisecond's difference in performance. If you run Ccleaner or any other registry cleaner and do not know precisely what you are doing, you
will have problems down the road. There are no gains to be had from using a registry cleaner and the risk is great. And defragging the registry is a myth also.

Well, many of us here have lots of experience. Many of us (myself included), do IT and server admin tasks for a living and have done so for many years. We generally are pretty well versed in what works and what doesn't and we are very skeptical of claims that something is magical and fixes all problems. We often have to see it for ourselves and then benchmark it and prove a difference.

I don't speak in generalities usually, I speak from experience. Hobbyists often praise the reg cleaner and stores will often try to sell you registry cleaning services as it's a very easy thing to pin issues on (broken registry)...but quite often the true professionals don't look there first or second...but rather last when the crap hits the fan.

So i guess the next step is to do a system restore System Restore

If that doesn't fix it your best options are laid out in this thread: Corrupted registry

That's what the computer professional response would be. The same hardcore computer enthusiast response who strongly recommends endorsing or using registry cleaners would have long disabled the system restore feature as it's totally unnecessary and consumes far to many precious computer resources.

"would have long disabled the system restore feature as it's totally unnecessary "

lol pparks1....one can only hope he/she didn't do that.

I didn't see this thread in time to say "Backup your Registry first and dont even do it even with a backup unless you are not really worried about hosing your system completely" . cause that risk is there.

It should.

Wipe free space just deletes blocks the OS marked as 'empty" even though theres still DATA there.
it may effect tools that attempt to retrieve deleted DATA however, such as DiskDigger.

But in this case, the system settings from Restore are actually in & marked as occupied space so it would not be effected by Wiper.

Yes it will. But unless you turned the function off, Ccleaner backs up the registry before deleteing any keys. Open Ccleaner and restore the registry.
