I and many other members feel that best to leave registry alone. This is not XP, Windows 7 does not need registry tampering.

If you do this, you will not have problems.

With Windows 7 the best advice is to leave the registry alone...you are inviting trouble that you really dont want... Forget about registry defragers .. it wont do anything to increase your speed.. The old axiom applies here .... If it aint broke, dont fix it!

CCleaner is good. Just do not use the clean registry option too often. Frequent defrags are not necessary and the one included with the OS is just fine.

I tend to agree. MS has a free antivirus, too. I use their defragger, that came with the system.
