Correction to the above quote that I supposedly said.....if you go & check those comments were indeed made by CarlTR6..... certainly not by me.

To be honest CCleaner is good just to clean the junk file not the Registry cleaner feature. It advisable not to do so. But someone is reluctant to use then its best to create a System Restore point and ensure you have made a backup of Registry.

Ccleaner will also list other "unused" keys. And these are truly unused - at present.

I think Maxwire had a point in his curiosity to think how far is the registry allowed to "bloat" with all the dead keys piling up. I know you guys often have system RAMs of about 4GB and above and that is why you guys won't notice performance loss because of the "bloating" that happens in the registry overtime and assuming you would do re-installs every few months, you don't bother yourself with registry cleaners.

But if the system RAM is below 1GB, there is performance loss.

I do believe that the registry will get "bloated" after some time especially if you tend to install a lot of programs and I also believe there ARE and there will be problems with a "bloated" registry.

But Microsoft just don't make too much details on the structure of the registry and for me that adds up to the problem here. I believe, we users must know what is going on in there so we can understand more things.

I honestly think they should design a self-healing and self sufficient registry.

I made a search on Google about "how does windows 7 manage the registry differently from XP", but I have got unrelated results. And the guys here (no offense) keep saying, Windows 7 manages the registry differently from Windows XP.

CarlTR6 said he found info about this on reading several really good books (manuals) on Windows 7 but sadly for me, I have not found any leads about that myself and that made me even more curious.


The performance loss issues is for me a big weakness in Microsoft's operating systems compared to Macs and Linux. Though Macs and Linux don't have registries that I know of, they require less maintenance tasks in my knowledge.

Could some recommened one that they are using with 64bit OS
I am currently using Ace Utilities, which got 5 stars from Cnet. I use the x64 version which has a Registry Cleaner that I use. Have had no problems to this point. I have everything backed up, so if I do have a problem, I'll re-format. That is my opinion, and I am not recommending it. I'm taking a chance with it, and totally respect the posts that say that none is needed, and that they can hurt your system. Oh, I've also been using CCleaner for years.

Well make sure you have a backup and restore point before you do it. I have mentioned in this thread as well as other threads. You System performace won't imporve by use these junks. Please stay away from it. Just clean the temp files, History etc. is more that enough. Most of the experts from Microsoft who build the OS says the same. Then it's up to you.

Hope this helps,
