CCleaner Registry Scan

It could possibly. It is a trustworthy program, but you should use the backup option, just in case.

I would avoid all registry cleaners. The benefits are marginal at best and the dangers are very real.

LMiller7 is very right and you should always make a backup when doing so. It is better safe than sorry.
