System aids for VISTA
by Rymantas / August 31, 2007 8:40 PM PDT

Both RegCure and PC Registry Mechanic work very well with VISTA.

Spyware Doctor with Anti Virus also works well with VISTA providing excellent protection for your PC.

The best PC defragmenting tool I recommend for VISTA is PC Pitstop.
It works wonders on even the largest hard drives.

Hope this helps.

Registry Tool And Vista cleanup
by Incognito60 / September 2, 2007 10:45 AM PDT

After running Vista for over six months and many tests of software to keep it clean and in top condition I have setteled on Uniblue's Power suite. The registry cleaner does a perfect job as does the registry defrag and the other tools included for cleaning junk files, privacy files, internet and memory work a treat.

I don't like to many programes working in background so I tend to stay with a suite as it keeps all tweeks and cleanups compatable with each other and in one place.

Which ever software you use for cleaning Vista registry, MAKE sure it is truly Vista compatable. As Vista stores its registry differenty to XP, older versions of registry cleaners that were designed for XP and appear to work on Vista can wipe out a lot of needed registry values.

I'm happy to participate every forum such as sharing opinion related to PC, software, hardware. Since I'm studying and taking up a course of Computer engineering I trained myself by way of reading and participating on the forum topic.
And about pc health advisor I've no hesitation in many times recommending the products because I currently using this. No problem about my PC and everything was fine. If you have a problem of your PC, pc health advisor was not include.

I read your reply and the last sentence looks incomplete. However the use of registry cleaners is the cause of many troubles and not the cure.

Since you dredged up

Since you dredged up this old post, I'll just add in here for the next passer-by that registry cleaning/fixing/whatever programs tend to cause more problems than they solve. They're the digital equivalent of snake oil. They're not even a solution in search of a problem, because they're not a solution to anything except the next boat payment for the person you pay to fix what it screws up.

And optimizing programs in general are of the same basic ilk. They don't really do anything you couldn't do yourself in about 5-10 minutes. They don't magically flip some kind of turbo boost switch deep inside Windows, they just clear out programs that load at startup, turn off some of the eye candy effects, and that's really about it. And they don't really speed your system up, they just shift the time you spend waiting for a program to load from startup to when you manually go to run the program. And by having to manually find and start the program, you've actually just HURT performance. Now you're spending even MORE time to do the same things, which is the exact OPPOSITE of the intended outcome.

At best these programs can be classified as do-nothings. However, calling them scams is well within reason IMO.
