I can say that I have used TuneUp for several years, never had a problem. First time I used the registry cleaner years ago, I prudently closed my eyes and hit the Enter button, not knowing what to expect. Surprise, it worked!

Since then, no issues. Loaded 2010 onto my new system, and first thing I did was the registry cleaner and defragmentor. Saved ~ 10% in size, and I was able to preview the items it was suggesting to address prior to removing them (accepted most of them). (This was a Windows Upgrade / Custom install, so maybe this was normal).

I also used it to defragment the hard drive, as I prefer the visual that it provides over the Vista version (have not tried the Win 7 defrag thing yet).

Everyone has their biases, and I have mine. Used it on XP, Vista, and now Win 7, and it has been part of a monthly PC cleanup routine for years. Would feel lost without it.

Cheers,
I think the hysteria of reg cleaners is that they are many more bad ones than good ones...everyone has used a bad one

CCleaner and TuneUp have been my most favorite cleaning/optimization apps...they have never failed me

i would say TuneUp, it is more user friendly and it also has some great results on maintaining & optimizing your system

but it's just my opinion, i use it and i like it...

I installed the trial and uninstalled it after a day. Besides the live optimization it just seems like a simple tweaking performance application.

And it didn't completely uninstall as well, leaving the "tuneup undelete" behind in the context menu of my recycle bin, had to manually delete it via the registry.

What Tune Up Actually does is to clean up your orphaned files and registries. So if you are not one of that kind who installs and uninstalls just all those " PC World Download of the Day " it's definately not 4 you. I use Tune Up's Turbo Mode which really stops several unwanted windows services during my Bioshock 2 sessions ;-)
Say, for example, have you heard of Transient Multi Monitor Manager?
It's a tool that helps laptop users use external monitors. Now for how many days, does one use an external monitor? Turbo shuts it up to manual, and many other such like apps.
