GlaryUtilities have fixed the Regdefrag issue.

It just tells me reg defrag is not needed if you are on 7 , and doesn't allow the possibility.

Running Advanced System Care Pro (latest version) with RC 7100_x64 and have had no problems. Thought I might mention this as there were post saying ASC gave trouble.

Have used registry clean feature multiple times but have not used defrag function; always use the default Windows defragger.

Various earlier builds had all sorts of issues and not just on Windows 7. They were widely reported at the time. The most well known issue was that it reported some OS dll as bad and removed it! I have now removed avg.

Added Commands in Demand along with an advisory on their other products since they dont mention Windows 7 and most of those applications appear to have been written for Vista.
