" Close your eyes and enjoy your computer performance". But I think one thing could be missing, is the warning that using registry cleaners with a 'Closed eye attitude', can perhaps lead to further problems.

I would always suggest that whatever programme you use, make sure that you understand it before deleting anything from the registry ;o)

Would mention that I have used or still use some of those mentioned above and linked. All provided a good and free method, and are recommended by many.

Everyone has there favourites,however i use Ccleaner weekly and Winaso monthly or after a session of uninstalling programs.

There are various cleaners out there,my advice is stick to the ones that are recommended.

I agree with your reg cleaner list with the exception of wise reg cleaner their last update caused quit a few errors and I no longer use that one. my fav is clearly eusing free reg cleaner, as good as winaso but cleans all in one go instead of ten at a time.

I'm still happy using Wise cleaner. I've run it fairly frequently, only delete the "safe" issues, and not had any problems at all.

Also recommended it at the computer club, and several have run it with no issues.

However, with ANY registry cleaner - better be sure you understand what's going on, and that changes are backed up.

My advice would be to thoroughly search the list of errors that registry cleaner displays. Majority of the registry issues are invalid entries.

There are plenty of registry cleaners in the market. I would also advice to go for the popular one if you are not sure.

In the end, my recommendation would be RegBooster.

an interesting topic. I have only ever used a C.Cleaner once, as I read on these pages (someones opinion) that it's 'fool-proof'. After I did my first sweep,,,, I started to read, again on these pages, that one should know what they are doing before using any of them, as they can cause problems.

I have been considering the C.Cleaner for a while, but now I see that there is a MS approved item, might go for that.

My question is:
how does a learner/first timer know what to let it delete,,, what to let it keep etc ?

Happy New Year to you All

ccleaner (as well as the others) gives you the opportunity to back up your registry, before effecting any changes.

If you use this opportunity, then it is just a matter of restoring your back-up copy, if anything goes wrong.

I've used Regseeker for years and always deleted everything it finds. Remember to run registry cleaners as many times as it takes to remove everything or until only irremovable entries remain (usually 2 or 3 times), but always make a backup before doing so.

I also use CCleaner, which is also excellent, but primarily to remove unwanted files.

Its not really necessary or advisable to send personal emails to forum members in response to a posting, unless a forum members requests that you do so. Best to provide responses on-line for all to see, and possibly provide further replies.

For other forum members interested in the email (which I find slightly confusing)and perhaps can be explained further by The F1 Help Key!.

yeah u are right" (end of quote).

I use CCleaner almost every day before I switch off and have never had problems. The only thing you have to watch is that it will clear cookies which are needed to remember you in forums like this, but it is very simple to set up what to keep. Regards Carper
