Windows 7 Pro & Vista Home Premium

Can you download Windows Live Safety Scanner as a standalone or does it come as part of a bundled package?

Unless you are well versed in registry entries and what they do,then it is best to avoid any registry cleaner.As previously stated they can do much more harm than good.

May I ask why you need one? They do not really help 'that much' unless you are trying to fix an issue thats registry related.
Hi Johnston,
I agree with DarkNovaGamer's comments.

A guide for the average computer user for NOT using a registry cleaner follows -

1.Windows is a closed source system, developers of registry cleaners are not working on definitive information, but rather empirical knowledge. Automatic cleaners will usually have to do some guesswork.
2. Modifying registry keys incorrectly can cause Windows instability, or make Windows unbootable.
3. No registry cleaner is completely safe and the potential is ever present to cause more problems than they claim to fix.

4. If you do not have knowledge of the registry, then you would probably be better off leaving it alone, and definitely not placing blind trust in a program to do the job for you.

I would recommend not using a registry cleaner as others have said in this thread. They mostly cause more damage than good.

I just had to do a complete reinstall the other day of my 7 because one caused my system to not boot
