DON'T MESS WITH THE REGISTRY UNLESS YOU ARE A PRO, AND YOU HAVE A KNOWN PROBLEM AND A KNOWN SOLUTION FOR THAT SPECIFIC PROBLEM! This is the voice of experience talking here.
The CCleaner is the recognized state-of-the-art cleaner both for disk and registry.

In hundreds of installs over 10 years time, I have never had CCleaner mess up with its registry cleaner, as it is not targeted at anything which is still an active key. It simply doesn't make mistakes.

If you are nervous about it, accept it's offered backup of deleted Registry keys which can easily be merged back in if necessary. I stopped bothering with this after about the thousandth time.

I have used Ccleaner registry cleaner several times too, with no adverse results. I have also read many comments about Windows 7 not requiring a registry cleaner. Not sure which is right, and their registry cleaner never shows anything to clean on my unit anyway.

A partition not used as a system and swap file partition will not be fragmented, there is no reason for it to be fragmented. If I understood your post correctly, and you are using that just to store media and such, then from a defragging standpoint I think the Windows Defragmenter is being truthful about that 0%.

For some reason, after install including all programs I get up to 100 registry cleanup items found by CCleaner. Auslogics Disk Defragger can take up to 20-30 minutes.

After Revo'ing a lot of bloatware programs without a clean reinstall (which is really needed), CCleaner can find up to a gig in disk cleanup and several hundred registry items. Auslogics Defragger can take nearly an hour when it normally completes in minutes.

These may sound strange, but are well worth the bother. It makes a huge difference in performance to have your HD clean and ordered.

I am not clear on what you are saying. Do you like or dislike Ccleaner? Do you like or dislike the Auslogics Disk Defragger?

I like CCleaner and Auslogics Disk and Registry defraggers, have used both for about 10 years on hundreds of installs with nary a problem.

I was only commenting that it is strange I get Registry entries to clean up after a clean install and setup, sometimes quite a few. I understand why I get them when doing an uninstall of bloatware, but not during a clean install or reinstall.

Got it. Thanks. That is strange to have all that after a clean install isn't it?
