RegSeeker - opinions

Anyone use RegSeeker click here?

I've had to switch to this from jv16 PowerTools to use as a reg cleaner. Even thought i cleaned the registry recently its bought up 600+ entries that can be cleaned.

How safe is it to remove all the entries it finds? I've been going through the list manually but i can only DEFINITELY remove 30 or so entries manually. The rest look like they could be removed but i can't be sure!

Is this product reliable in its findings?

Been using it for 2 months and I delete everything it comes up with without even checking. IMHO a far superior and better specced product than JV16. Set a system restore point, if you are nervous and delete everything it comes up with. The deletions are saved to a backup file so you can replace them.

found and deleted 224 entries have had a cursory glance at most used progs IExplorer windows explorer outlook & AV plus a few other bits and bob's running.All seems ok at the momment obviously only a short term insight, however there is a back up facility in the program if things do go a bit pear shaped.

I've got GoBack installed so i'll set a point and give it a go. I'll report back...

So far so good....

i have just downloaded regseeker, and it found 1500 entries, it seems to be ok after deletion, backed up just in case,

Tried regseeker and removed all 301 entries it found. It seems less stringent than jv16, which IMHO is a good thing. Is it only in my imagination that my system seems to be faster?

Mine seems snappier!!!!!!

Oh and RegSeeker keeps finding c:\ program files\adobe\reader\acrob32.exe (or something like that) as none existent - when it is there!! If i remove the reg entry then the next time i open Acrobat it reinstalls first!!!
