    I don't think it's better either, those tools are meant for people who know what they are doing.
    Isn't CCleaner just an automated process and you really don't need to know that much?

    Hi,

    What makes you think that MS would create a tool that would be so dangerous and a third party vendor would make one so much better?
    MS had a tool for just that but they quickly abandoned it.Too powerful for the punters.
    Guess it came with a resourcekit years ago. or Sysinternals.

    It can, I wouldn't really do it. You can run the program and it will present you a list of suggested items for removable and you can select which ones to remove.

    Hi,



    How can something that's free qualify as "snake oil"

    No Nietzsche quote for that one.

    How true. Applicable to the Registry as well .

    Good quote Sir.

    All in good spirit, bien entendu.

    Only "defense" is to use portable programs.
    Those too write to the registry.

    A while back with xp and vista (95?), I do remember seeing performance increases after running ccleaner's registry cleaner. I recall one computer could barely run at all - slow motion - and a registry cleaning (there were many hundreds of entries) made the computer normal. I guess this is not the case these days with improved OS functioning and memory etc. I haven't seen any performance or improvements with cleaning... just with defragging but even that Windows takes care of pretty well now. I still clean the registry very occasionally I guess mainly out of habit and I just like the registry totally correct - an anal thing i guess. I ran it after creators update (twice) and the computer is fine. And the registry is perfect.

    Here is the rationale given for registry cleaning by ccleaner:

    CCleaner - Use the registry cleaner to repair your registry

    It's important to know how registry entries affect a computer though. All binary and all that @ Doogie.
    It's that binary part that makes the registry so important to have it right.
