View Full Version : Registry Cleaner

Been using Registry First Aid for awhile now with no problems.
Since it's time to renew my license I was wondering what you think is better than First Aid.

Well, I don't believe in registry cleaners unless they are used by someone in the know, to help ferret out a real problem. I don't like to just let those kinds of programs make decisions, for they are only looking for inconsistencies that they are programmed to. It doesn't mean it's a problem, and removing or even correcting it to what it thinks it should be might not be the right thing to do.
Your registry most probably does not need "cleaning" so try uninstalling it and get the safest and best registry cleaner of all. None :-)
(... and you lounge lizard lechers out there better not crack any jokes about Nun and Good Friday. Oops...)

I don't pay fer one. I use CCleaner (http://www.ccleaner.com) for normal system cleaning. Gets rid of all the temp crap, cookies and such. It also has a registry cleaner that seems to do a pretty good job.
Best parts are it hasn't broke anything, and it's free. :lol:

If you want to find all the little bs that all thos fast pc and other pc reg cleaners find, try this:
free, and works well, it seems to find all the errors that are missed by many of the others.

I tend to agree with Grogan on this. I used to use them back when I used WinXP and after a while (several months) it seemed like something always got broke. I stopped useing them and no more breakage. However...for some odd reason I recently gave CCleaner a try in Vista and then Win7. It seems to be pretty conservative with what it wants to fix and hasn't broke anything yet. But, I also haven't noticed it making any difference in the before and after performance either. So I've pretty much stopped running it too.
