Windows 7: What is a good, reliable registry cleaner?

21 May 2010   #31

Why blame CCleaner if it could have been Revo, which is much more likely?

CCleaner will not touch an active Reg key while Revo lets you choose from a list but only the bolded items are safe.

Revo does set a restore point you can use to recover if necessary.

The problem with Revo is that it is easy to select a Registry Item that isn't in bold. Better to use Moderate than Pro unless you are really viglant as it uses a Safe Mode that makes this harder.

Well I didn't do a controlled test, but you can see why I'm not comfortable with those reg programs anymore!

There is good reason not to be, because a lot of the Registry Cleaner popup ads are malware or a sales operation with nothing good to back it up.

These give a bad name to the one flawless free Cleaner backed by ingenious innovation and fine-tuning.

Unnecessary registry cleaning results in many problems further down the line.

Here is the question: why do people think they need to clean out the registry? It's not like the hard disk. The programs know exactly where to look for the reg entries they need, and don't need to go searching.

As for hard drive space taken, the whole registry takes about a quarter GB, less than 500MB at worst.

I give a thumbs up for CC, never ever done my systems anyharm, and as to the óver cleaning'the registry statement, please.....

It removes inactive entries, thats all, once its removed them, you can run it again and again its not going to remove anymore or anything else!

Dont put all registry cleaners in the same basket, crapcleaner is the only one i would ever use or recommend, I do try others on test systems, but have not needed to change yet and have been using CC for 3 years on many systems.

Just moved also to auslogics disk defrag, run it a dozen times last night on a win7 laptop to see what would happen, end result, no data loss, no damage, slightly faster laptop.

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
