Registry cleaners

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have been running Vista for a month now quite sucessfully. I always used a registry cleaner with my XP. I was looking for a registry cleaner for Vista and got blasted on the Vista neagroup for even using a registry cleaner. I think they work and work quite well.

Does anyone use or believe in registry cleaners?

I've used registry cleaners and a registry optimiser for years. They do work and have a beneficial effect, imo. Not everybody agrees though .

I use CCleaner to clean it up...

They DO work. Sometimes if you have an entry that it doesn't find something for...it'll bring up error messages or something...

Plus, it's juts faster.

Tweaking and removing old or bad registry entries can make alot of difference to computer performance..Apart from Ccleaner a program Called Registry mechanic is also very good : http://www.pctools.com/registry-mechanic/?ref=google_rm

I use both CCleaner and Registry Mechanic. My preference is for Registry Mechanic although its not free - its the safest r cleaner out there. Some of the others are too aggressive and cause more troubles than they cure.
