    I won't consider it because of the gimmicky ad pop-ups telling me that it is
    my last chance to get an immediate
    price discount or some such. Similarly, I can't stand Advanced System
    Optimizer because it won't let you leave the
    web page.

    Everyone has bashed registry cleaners but no one has told about a bad
    experience with my own choice,
    Uniblue Registry Booster.

    To say that, in general, registry cleaners are junk is to say nothing at
    all. Of course they are junk in general, I've known
    that for a long time.

    I bought Ms-errors and I got a blue screen after I ran it. :(
    I could not believe it, my 64 bit Vista was displaying a blue screen.
    haven't saw a blue screen since the win 98 days

    Thanks to my son I found WindoFix program which fixed it back and als
    properly cleaned the registry. Any of you want to try it this the link
    'WindoFix' (http://www.windofix.com) I strongly recommend it

  6. It's much more likely that using a registry cleaner will *create* a
    problem.

    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 you.

    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.

    Hi, KiethJohn.

    I agree with Ken.

    Reminds me of the practical joke that was common in the early days of
    telephones. A prankster would call and say, "Mrs. Jones, this is the phone
    company calling to let you know that today is when we blow out the phone
    lines. So please cover all your nice furniture and leave your phone
    receiver off the hook. We'll use a powerful blower here at the telephone
    office and it will blow all the accumulated dust and debris out. Sadly, the
    dust will all come out through your receiver and we just wanted you to be
    prepared." The pranksters enjoyed visiting Mrs. Jones later in the day,
    saying they had been trying to phone her and asking why her phone was off
    the hook - and why her furniture was covered.

    I think "registry cleaners" basically just "blow the dust out" of the
    Registry. They do about as much good as those old pranksters - and often
    more harm. :>(
