Its made an immediate and large difference on many PC's I have used it on at work. The reg cleaner works great.

When your defrag is done, open CMD and type in " chkdsk /r ".
Select "yes" then reboot. This will start a 5 stage index/registry repair that looks like a simple disk check but does so much more.
Did not know about this. Will be added to the tune-up process. Much thanks

Go back into msconfig, boot.ini tab, set the numproc option to the highest. This tells windows how many cores to use when booting (ie before you see the logon screen)

SSD and reformat would help the most TBH

Code:
Most of these registry keys are useless because your Windows registry is like a warehouse filled 
with books, where every program on your PC places its own book of settings and the only thing 
that reads it is the same program that adds the book [registry keys] in the first place – 
Windows doesn’t read these books or “care†about these third-party software’s settings.
I don't know why this scam is still around... [edit] I don't like getting articles like that so I'll see if I can find a better/more credible source. I'm sure I'll find one, though google has been flooded with reviews/crap opinions without any benchmarks/results.

[edit2] I also forgot to address the MS created registry cleaner. It was dated for 95/98 and supposedly worked for 2k. However it has been removed from their download center, wonder why? I also urge you to find out why they never released a new one? They could have when they did MSE, giving it the ability to clean the registry (would have helped marketing). Though since there is no reason it is a moot issue, don't spend time coding something that you don't need.
