XP registry cleaners

What have you found the best cleaner for XP registry? I cannot remove AVG7 items,it will not let me delete them, even as Administrator in Safe Mode.

I have removed all other items in Windows Explorer, after first removing from Add Remove

RegscrubXP click here

Easycleaner click here ( Use with care, It advises you to back up the registry first, this is a good idea as it cleans rather aggressively. )

Have you tried cCleaner, in Tools highlight what needs deleting and try it.

Downloaded it and run it, I have used this on my 98se comp ok in the past. But it does not even find AVG7 when I do a Search

RegscrubXP does not find them either

I just run it on the laptop I'm using with XP home and it is on the software list when first started, AVG 8 that is on this machine.

I use Auslogics Registry Defrag - just like the Disk Defrag it's excellent. See:
