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.<br />
<br />
Does anyone use or believe in registry cleaners?

</div>I've used registry cleaners and a registry optimiser for years. They do work and have a beneficial effect, imo. Not everybody agrees though <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" /> .<br />

I use CCleaner to clean it up...<br />
<br />
They DO work. Sometimes if you have an entry that it doesn't find something for...it'll bring up error messages or something...<br />
<br />
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 : <a href="http://www.pctools.com/registry-mechanic/?ref=google_rm" target="_blank">http://www.pctools.com/registry-mechanic/?ref=google_rm</a>

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.
