superman276, I've used "RegCleaner 22.214.171.1240" for years and it has worked well. It is available for Free at the link below and works with all versions of Windows. I suggest reading the instructions and not using the Remove unused DLL files, Remove unused Shared DLLs (Automatically detected) unless you know exactly what you're doing and especially not using the "Reset hardware configuration" under the "Tools" section.
anyone know of a free, good, safe registry cleaner. i have way too much junk in there. thanks for the replies!
