    That's the one thing that I recommend people stay away from doing unless they have a problem they haven't been able to fix using any other method. A few lingering items in the registry is really not a problem, there are hundreds of thousands of registry entries. 4 entries from a software install is not going to impact overall system performance.

    Wise Disk Cleaner - Disk Cleanup and Defrag Tool - I use it since 8, it cleans Windows Updates PatchCache.

    Plus a few Windows commands:

    fsutil usn deletejournal /d /n c:
    chkdsk /scan
    winmgmt /salvagerepository
    del "%temp%\*" /s /f /q
    del "%systemroot%\temp\*" /s /f /q
    vssadmin delete shadows /for=c: /all /quiet
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase
    cleanmgr /sageset:65535 & cleanmgr /sagerun:65535
    I've been using CCleaner so I tried Wise Disk Cleaner on my Windows 10 PC which originally started life as a Windows 8 PC. The Common Cleaner scan found 4GB of 'useless files' and the Slimming System option found another 1.9GB of which 1.6GB was in the Windows Installer Baseline Cache.

    How safe is Wise Disk Cleaner to use since there is no option to move the surplus files into temporary storage in case there are problems?

    I use it about once a week, I have used it on multiple PCs over the years and I have never had any problems.

    According to this, you can forget all the so called cleaners: PC Cleaning Apps are a Scam: Here’s Why (and How to Speed Up Your PC)

    There are various types of cleaning app. There are those that purport to fix "broken" issues and improve performance which you should stay away from. Then there are those that are safe and just remove junk files. ccleaner and Wise Disk Cleaner are two of the latter.

    OK - I've added Wise Disk Cleaner to my repertoire of trusted utilities.

    I have not used CCleaner or any other optimizer / cleaner / tweaker since XP about 12 - 13 years ago. There's absolutely no need for this kind of applications, Windows is totally capable to take care of itself.

    It's funny how users every now and then tell how "I have never had any issues with it", forgetting to mention that they also have had no benefits in using applications like that. There's no speed gain, however often you use those tweakers and cleaners. A forgotten registry key does in no way make PC unusable, removing it does not speed up a PC or make PC more reliable.

    I always smirk a bit when someone tells how much space on HD a tweaker or cleaner released. I mean, cleaning let's say 50 MB of unused registry keys, that's like gaining less than one promille, a tenth of a percent of a typical 512 GB HDD.

    I get better results deleting unnecessary documents and pics.

    Snake oil.
