Re: best registry cleaner

We don't recommend using them. We think all are bad. And there certainly is no "best".

Moreover, the subject is unrelated to spyware, viruses and security. Why did you choose this forum for your question?

No Such Thing

Generally, registry cleaners do more harm than good. Over the years, there have been some real horror stories about the items regcleaners have removed and as a result, have left computers unworkable. It's also interesting that I have yet to find an unbiased, third party review/test site which shows they perform any benefit at all.

My opinion: Don't use any of them.

Hope this helps.

Please Show A Third Party Website Showing Their Benefits

So far, I've not found any third-party sites that perform tests to verify if ANY benefits occur after using registry cleaners or so-called "Optimizers" as general clean-up tools. In fact, one of the download sites ( for the first regcleaner you mentioned, makes a special note about such cleaners. That quote is below:

Editor's Note:
Over the years it has become clear that removing registry entries will not fix errors, solve problems or speed up your PC.

Another link explaining why they don't help:

Here, we DO NOT recommend using registry cleaners and they usually cause more problems than they fix.

Hope this helps.
