I used to use one, religiously. Until it bricked my machine...

If you read up, duff stuff in the reg doesn't slow things down, anyway. I just get rid to save disk space (I'm a bit paranoid, with that). [badimg]http://www.katzy.dsl.pipex.com/Smileys/paranoia.gif[/bad img]

I understand your reluctance to trust such tools. My thinking is, if it stuffs something up, I'll just re-load everything. I have the time and the backups. So far I've never needed to. That said, I used to do it fairly regularly back in the days of W95, as Windoze has improved it has become less and less necessary. In fact W7 only ever got the treatment three or four times in it's tenure on my machines. W10 may be due for a re-load on my lappy, only because I do visit, on occasion, some, less than, secure websites and it is my daily driver.

I wouldn't trust ANY registry cleaner, to be honest. I edit duff stuff out, myself, using O&O's free version of regedit.

I rarely unsinstall something these days. I have a set of tools that I use regularly and rarely, if ever. Install something to try it out.

It only uninstalls programs. My version of CCleaner leaves stuff in the registry, when it uninstalls.

CCleaner Professional/Business/Technician V5.22.5724

Quick question, does it do everything that cCleaner does and more?

The free version gets rid of silly registry entries and stray files in program data and AppData, too. Well worth the money...
