  • Registry Cleanup Tool

    What is the best registry cleanup tool anyone has used? I am looking for one to recommend that will not corrupt your system if you do not know what you are doing.

    It would be for Windows XP Pro.

    Thanks to anyone who can help.

      You could also try the one that comes with CCleaner. It's free.

        Safest answer to that is "none" to be fair.
        I use the CCleaner one but scan through to make sure it is doing what I want.

              CCleaner gets my ThumbsUp too. And not only mine ...
              Nevertheless, there is one rule one should always follow: always check the things such tool will alter on your computer, never rely blindly on them.

                I'm an IT admin and I don't think I've ever used a 'registry cleaner' in my life. Why would I want to? Am I missing out on something really exciting?

                  I've seen some big improvements in system performance speed after using a registry clean up tool on a system that has not been cleaned before.

                  Subsequent runs do offer any improvements to system speed, but they do prevent 'clutter' accumulating.

                    After all, rule #1 in computing: "It's not broken, don't fix it". If you behave properly with your computer, shouldn't be any need for a Registry Cleaner. Nevertheless, there are specific actions (like every time you install and uninstall an application, it leaves "debris"; shutting down the computer in a "dirty" manner and so on) that after some time can bring havoc in your Registry.
                    So, you can try and see. Just don't let the cleaner do whatever it wants...

                      I don't like RegCleaners either; but I don't agree that they're not needed. I just think they're not implemented very well.

                      The old "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" only goes SO FAR with Windows XP. Windows XP leaves a lot of debris and general crap lying around; it's VERY poor at cleaning up after itself. (Have a look in %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Temp and you'll see what I mean). When the crap is in the registry, it leads to slow loading, slow searching, slow access. So - I want a registry cleaner... but I don't like any of the offerings out there at the moment. You never know whether to delete the keys/values it lists or not... it just tells you where it is and what it's called; and if it's called HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{S-1-5-21-666-736452873548-sdyf998w7ewe98sa79d70er}\Local\Bin\exe\2\7\heifer\ cow\hafsg.exe\& - would YOU know whether or not it could be deleted?!

                        Amust, speeded up boot times, program load times, stand-by and wake up operations. Most noticeable on older notebooks bloated with unnecessary junk.
