Can anyone direct me to a Registry Cleaner package for "dummies" so I can follow simple instructions to carry out a spring clean of my pc which runs Win XP Home os. Want the full software not just trial versions with partial application.
Dont bother cleaning your registry ! its a total waste of time. Over the last 15 years i have not only studied the registry but have also concluded that no amount of cleaning does any good whatsoever, you will notice no system performance increases and will only cause system failure by inadvertently removing a needed key. Ccleaner although fairly carefulin its operation, is no exception. The registry is so vast removing 50 or 200 keys here and there will do absolutely nothing but harm in the long run. I have not cleaned my Xp Pro registry at all , although i do make disk images (which is a damn sight better all round). And my system is as fast as the day i installed it and with no errors at all caused by awful needless registry cleaning tools.
