Registry cleaner

Anyone know a good freeware registry cleaner? Lots on the internet claim to be freeware but when downloaded there's usually a snag.

Use this

click here

But be careful, it is a powerful app, so examine what it's going to delete before you click the clean button!

You can use Winaso registry Optimizer trial edition.It will only repair 10 items at a time, But you can run it as often as you like. it also has a registry defrag with it if you want to use here

I use RegScrubXP. How ever I am no expert.

It appears to do a job and has caused me no problems so far

Have a look at Eusing Free Reg Cleaner it works well, but like all others check what it proposes to clean up.

I have been merrily deleting all that CCleaner identifies for several years without mishap. I recommend it to people on a regular basis.

ccleaner has worked for me I used to use ccleaners backup but has always worked so now I hardly bother backing up unless there is a load of bits and peices

An interesting point!
Yesterday I uninstalled Quicktime and replaced it with Quicktime Alternative.
I then did a registry sweep to find what Qucktime may have left behind.
CCleaner and Advanced Windows Care came up with virtually nothing.
The deep scan function of WinASO came up with over 570 redundant Quicktime related entries. Not wanting to run the prog 58 times to clear these at ten a time I also tried Reg Mechanic (I still have the freebie of version 5) and the deep scan function of that also came up with the same 570 Quicktime related entries.
It would appear on that basis that the much praised CCleaner and AWC are but scratching the surface.
