    A regcleaner does not "fix" problems but might prevent them from happening.
    Prevention is better than cure, as the saying goes.

    You people that want to use reg cleaners after all of the advice given to not use them go right ahead it is your machine, you want to take the chance of ruining it go right ahead but remember this:

    The Best Drive Cleaners and Registry Cleaners - MajorGeeks

    Answer:

    There are none. Pause here, please, and remember that. There are many safe, conservative registry cleaners but if you don't know what you're doing, they can be more trouble than they are worth. People are often given the advice to download a registry cleaner by a well-meaning friend, for example. Fixing registry errors have been used for many years as a sales tactic for some applications. It's an easy way to show your computer has "thousands" of problems, when in fact, there are none. Registry cleaners just remove old traces from your registry. These are often left behind from programs that you uninstalled or updated. Your computer will not run any faster by removing old registry entries. The bottom line here? You won’t fix anything, but you might break something.

    Someone has a fitting quote as a sig: "If it ain't broke fix it until it is".

    I never in my use with Windows have ever had an issue with removing something that should have remained with respect to CCleaner and Tracks Eraser Pro 9.x
