    Nor do I.

    I asked Keith if he trusts a third party application to make registry changes, in which he said yes, subject to it having a good reputation. I then used CCleaner as an example of a registry editing application with good reputation. I do not nor did I categorize it as a tweaker, clearly talking about "cleaners and tweakers". CCleaner IMO belongs to cleaners, not tweakers.

    And yet, in the tools section it is clearly a tweaker.

    Never (read: since XP) used it or any other registry cleaner, not even a quick test. Didn't know that.

    Got it, I don't use any Registry cleaners either but use Revo Uninstaller as a prevention against registry leftovers. It's also relatively easy to chase down leftovers using Registry search but preventing leftovers is much better. If you use Revo to also install programs than it picks up minute changes to registry and files and uninstalls them down to last bit. It also makes log, Restore point and Registry backup so it can revert any changes made by installed program.

    Since XP it has not been necessary to use a registry cleaner although uninstalling programs does generally leave a lot of dross behind. I'm sure it could be done manually but Revo does a good job of tidying up.

    It seems to be quite a common misunderstanding that any leftovers in registry from uninstalled software could do some harm.

    Windows registry takes care of itself, is fully capable to do it. At boot, and later during normal operations, only those parts of various registry hives that are needed are read. No leftovers will slow down the boot process or normal use of WIndows simply because Windows ignores them. Size of combined hives is completely irrelevant, cleaning those leftovers does not speed up boot or normal Windows usage a single microsecond.

    In addition, with today's hard disks and solid state drives being usually at least a few hundred gigabytes, removing those leftovers might in best case scenario save some few kilobytes, such a microscopic percentage of the HDD / SSD capacity that it can barely be noticed.

    How can you tell a Windows feature is still experimental? By the jokes in code, messages and notifications:

    When official, those jokes disappear, being replaced with geek jargon.
