    Are there any free Registry cleanup / systems speed up programs for Vista Home Basic out there or just the free limited trial with upgrade purchase required?

    The best registry cleaner is no cleaner at all. WinNT systems, of which
    Vista is one, do not suffer from the registry bloat problems associated with
    the Win9x line (which died 9 years ago with WinME). Dead entries are simply
    ignored, they do not cause any performance problems.

    If you want to speed up your system, look at trimming the startup axis to
    only the essentials, and maximize the amount of memory available in your
    system. Adding software to control the software already on your system will
    just serve to slow it down further.

  3. Free or otherwise, registry cleaning programs are *all* snake oil.
    Cleaning of the registry isn't needed and is dangerous. Leave the
    registry alone and don't use any registry cleaner. Despite what many
    people think, and what vendors of registry cleaning software try to
    convince you of, having unused registry entries doesn't really hurt

    The risk of a serious problem caused by a registry cleaner erroneously
    removing an entry you need is far greater than any potential benefit
    it may have.

    Couldn't have said it better. Please, please, for the sake of syste
    stability, do NOT use a reg cleaner. Its all out there for marketin
    when in actuality, they do nothing to improve performance

    There are many registry cleaners in the market which claim Vista compatible,

    however, almost all of them are NOT compatible with Vista and NOT Vista aware

    at all. Using such registry cleaners on Vista systems often corrupt your registry

    and cause more problems than they can fix but a good Vista registry cleaner can

    help you keep your PC running smooth.
