    Indeed, trust is important, I would not touch anything from Iobit, Auslogics or Baidu.

    Yes I knew someone would say that. It's simple nothing should be ticked by default, same as Win 10 . Its removed now and will remain that way!

    I downloaded something from Iobit and it took me quite a long time to remove all the malware or adware that came with it. I now manually clean my registry of items that I know no longer belong there.

    PS. I always clean mine with CC though. I am such a geek. Never had any issues.

    PS2. Another history is to defrag and compact the registry. It may give you a slightly speed boost.
    Well just had to put my 2 cents worth in on registry cleaning. I have been cleaning my registry for years, since windows xp, I use mainly 2 registry cleaners, one is made by Ace Utilites ( MY favorite) and of course CC cleaner. I own both of these fine programs. I have never had a serious problem using these two. I am 65 years old, been playing on computers since OS2 Warp. Bet a lot of you never even heard of OS2 Warp. Grin. Anyhow, If your registry cleaning software is good, cleaning your registry does improve your system!!! No matter what anyone says. Just my opinion.

    Well, I know OS2 Warp. This was one of the OS clients could choose to have installed on their brand new PC. Only a few did.

    Well Rudy, I ran OS2 Warp for about 2 years I think, was so long ago I can't remember exactly.... but it never crashed was rock solid for me. I don't think their was any version of Windows back then?? I switched because of lack of appointments being made for it.

I was wondering if it really is bad to run reg cleaners and if so should I just avoid installing CCleaner? Should I just stick to the windows disk clean up then?
    I use CCleaner, McAfee Quickclean and Windows cleaner. No problem with using either. In fact each seems to catch problems missed by the other two.

    I learned the hard way to stay away from the registry cleaner part of CCleaner. I use the disk cleaner part every day at startup.

    A good program to use for cleaning up junk files left after uninstalling a program is Revo Uninstaller (Free version). Not only does it use the program you want to remove's built in uninstaller, it also checks the registry for any crumbs and the hard drive for any remaining crumbs. I used the free version for so many years and liked it, I went ahead and bought the pro version for a few extra features I also like.

    I like CCleaner a lot, but I will never even think about the registry cleaner part.

    Awww chicken......lol I use 3 different reg cleaners, have used 2 of those 3 for years. CCleaner is a very mild reg cleaner out of the 3 I use. I also own Revo Uninstaller Pro, which also does registry cleaning toooo. Most of these programs make a backup of the registry before cleaning them anyhow. But, your right I know lots of folks that are very nervous about using any reg cleaner. I'm just been doing it a long time now, so its no big deal for me.

    I run the registry cleaning of CCleaner on a regular basis and have never had a problem. I trust it so much, I always say no to the backup. I tried Revo and guess what, it didn't do anything more than CCleaner does. Uninstalling through CCleaner and then running the registry clean does the same as using Revo.
