    I occasionally use CCleaners Registry Cleaner but otherwise do it manually as Josey Wales does. Having said that I come frome a background of beta testing JV16 Power Tools where you really needed to know what the registry entries referred to or be doomed.
    Interesting times though.
    Thing is though, rubbish does still get left behind in the registry whatever version of windows due to bad uninstallers. You just have to make your choice and go with what you feel comfortable with :)

    Hi,

    Edit and if you checked MS no longer supports the use of registry cleaners.
    Of course they don't. But not does not mean they're not beneficial. It just means they do not want to take any responsiblility.

    Most of the time the registry is working against Windows performance, not for it . Which is why they'd rather get rid of it but can't for now.

    Again, if you do not know how to maintain it properly, don't touch it.

    Sorry to say so but claiming not maintaining the registry is benificial is just another urban myth.

    Cheers,

    Is there a Microsoft licensed registry cleaner I have heard - Microsoft Community

    Stay away from them all!
    Registry cleaning programs are all snake oil. Cleaning of the
    registry isn't needed and is dangerous. Leave the registry alone and
    don't use any registry cleaner. Despite what many people think, and
    what vendors of registry cleaning software try to convince you of,
    having unused registry entries doesn't really hurt you.

    So show some evidence that it actually is beneficial.

    And nothing is going to happen if you just leave the registry along.
    Those entries are dead and are not affecting the performance of the machine one bit.

    Ha, I knew that was coming.
    How does one prove one is smarter than the other ?

    Quite frankly, Jeff, I couldn't care less. Do as you see fit and be happy with it.

    I agree Jeff but it's a personal preference. For instance if you had unlimited storage on your PC would you leave your temp files there forever or get rid of them ?

    Microsoft will always say no, because they don't want to go record saying they support 3rd party apps. Hell they will say use no other media player other than the built in ones.
