There are two schools of thought. I subscribe to the dont use any reg cleaner, and sparing use others. I dont recommend their use.

I must agree with Ken, and after making so many posts, I know for a fact that many others do to.

Just maintian the computer. defrag, not too often. Remove temporary files, etc.

Actually you can read this

Just dont follow the part about reg cleaners

I like to use a nice wipe program to delete files with 7 to 37 passes so they can not be recovered etc.

I also do not recommend usage of registry cleaner in Windows 7. Only if the system turns extremely slow can it be given a try once. Otherwise better to abstain from it. I have had my registry messed up once in the past by a registry cleaner and would not recommend its regular usage.

If you are going to use one make a system restore point, first. In addition back up your registry.
