    Hi,



    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.

    Cheers, ; )
    So,, what you're saying is that anyone who does nothing to the registry, clean it, isn't properly maintaining their PC?

    I use ccleaner's registry cleaner all the time.. well really every few months now. I just cleaned up all the mess with it left after the creators update. Never had a problem with it. I always do the backup beforehand and give a quick glance at what it is removing. I like the registry to be perfect.
    A Windows registry will never be perfect.

    Well at least according to the scan in terms of no problems found.

    If these Reg Cleaners actually performed the way their developers claim they do would 99.9 % of them be free.? Ho many users actually take the time to fully backup their registry before using a Reg Cleaner. I would guess 10%, the rest just think e the product will do what it says it will do. It is a choice use it or do not, it is up to you.

    Most of us here clean install Windows so often that Reg cleaners are unnecessary!
    Not me, I always restore from backup. Haven't used a registry cleaner since Windows XP. There is no need for them and they can only do harm. The idea that you need them if you don't reinstall windows often is a bogus line of reasoning.

    I use CCleaner, Geek Uninstaller, and Primo (= Program Installation Monitor).

    You wish. Even a fresh install of Windows comes with plenty of registry entries that are redundant at best.

    I just clean installed 1703 yesterday, and I might use the registry cleaner on CCleaner later.

    I find somewhat interesting, that most people judging reg cleaners, never actually used them.
    It is like saying: "I know it is bad, because I have read that." I prefer facts rather than hearsay.
    Like a magnetic bracelet, people and scientists say, that it is nonsense and yet it saved my wrist.

    So you are saying, that if something is free, it is bad? Like Linux, LibreOffice, CCleaner, etc?

    I would not touch a reg cleaner, which does not backup registry automatically, but most do.

    I find it logical to use 'think' instead of 'know' above.
    That is the problem, people are 100% sure, that it is true. Reg cleaners have got their bad reputation during XP era, the same time IE6 was the worst browser out there and IE did not shake that down even until now. Once you get a bad sticker, it is forever, internet never forgets. Like The Mojave Experiment - YouTube.
