I was woundering is it worth or good idea to use Registry Cleaners?

I use to use PC Tools Registry Mecenic on my old XP Pro pc... Then it ran out and not bothed to renew etc. I now have a nice new pc that i built myself no registry cleaner installed or ever used... I looked on Pc Tools site today and it on about does your pc crash , slow etc... Mine is not slow :) yet had the odd lock up this last few days in games... How ever all my drivers are update for

Grahics card
Sound card

etc etc....

So would a registry scanner fix my crashes?

On old pc it use to find 400 errors etc stuff that was not even on pc for example that I taken off weeks before on old pc... New pc never had a scan...

Any ideas advice would be greatful

I dont even know if the pc tools one works on 64bir Vista cant see it any were on site..

Thank you for reading..

Are registry cleaners worth it?

No. I certainly wouldn't pay for one. As CClean has one for free it won't usually do any harm to use t.

I actually did a bit of a test when I installed Vista on a new PC. I booted without cleaning the registry. Then I cleaned the registry with JV16 which I have a forever licence for & it booted quicker & was more responsive. Not exactly scientific but enough for me.

On here there are those who think cleaners help & those that don't. Take your pick.
