Just a quick up-date with C Cleaner it is usable with Vista.Also The Ravens selection of Winaso comes highly recommended.

If you don't mind me asking .... how do you determine whether any of these registry cleaners do a good job ?

... I use ccleaner, and just take it on blind faith that it knows what it is doing as it deletes redundant reg entries etc.

researching the product would help, downloading any old guff that claims to make your PC run better is asking for trouble and that is where forums like PCA
come to fruition, The progs that are reccommended on here are usually tried and tested and the default settings are design ed to do exactly what you want them to do...

after running the reg checkers there is a noticeable difference in the speed of programs opening up on the computer, it kills that sluggishness they sometimes get.

some reg checkers seems to find dead links that others don't.

tried about a dozen different reg checkers and settled for these four. free reg mechanic 5 was good but was often unable to some of the errors it found.
