Which Reg Cleaner

  redbarron 12:53 05 Feb 2009

With so many (supposedly)registry cleaners out there it is difficult to make a choice on which one to go for.

From what I've gathered the top ones appear to be the following.

Perfect Optimizer
Registry Easy

Can anyone confirm which is the best of the bunch please. Thank you

The best of the bunch is the computer operater. You should never use a reg cleaner unless you know exactly what the entry, which it wants to remove, does. Use any reg cleaner at your own risk. If you really must have a reg cleaner to delete known problems, choose one that automatically creates a backup, remembering that a backup is not always a panacea, no good having a backup if your PC wont boot.

Some reg cleaners are dangerous, and b4 i delete anything i always check, but a very mild cleaner is ccleaner, you can backup what you remove. I have used this ccleaner product for many years without problems. You can download from here>>

Never go to Sites that actually sell those products as you will never get the proper information.Now if you add review when Googling you will get the good reviews and bad reviews from folk that have actually used them.
Now my best ones are free and probably a lot better than some of the ones you have picked.
Winaso Optimizer[Free or Buy] C Cleaner. Eusing.
I would say Winaso is the best of the three.

The beauty od ccleaner is that it removes more than registery problems as you shall see. It seems to be a good all rounder. I have never used Winaso, but i shall very soon on my crash box ;-)
