I was just about to say click here and noticed Belatucadrus had beaten me to it.

If you are a granny Granny.and you want something 'easy to use' then CCleaner is the one for you.

You can safely delete everything that shows up in the Issues Tab.

Ccleaner is mainly a file cleaner and should be used with regseeker or the like.

I downloaded C.Cleaner, and it found 363 items !!!

You were right about it being easy to use as well, Thank you very much .................

Have been seeking an efficient yet safe registry cleaner and didn't see this forum till later. I found a site click here who listed Best= Advanced System Organiser from SysTweak ($39.95), Second=Fix-It Utilities from V-Com ($49.99, Registry Mechanic featured at tenth ($29.95)and review advised it as less safe to use (especially for novices)than former two.
Has anyone experienced using any of these and how did they find them, especially how easy to use and how safe ?
By comparison to the freeware/shareware mentioned by contributors, these are all quite expensive (but first two do include additional utilities also) but would they offer any real improvement in use compared to say RegSeeker, CCleaner, RegCompacter ?
