First thing I do is back up the registry. Then I search for entries for programs I have uninstalled. I also use a program called RegScrubXP. It will search for orphaned entries and remove them. I also use Norton System Works WinDoctor.
One word of caution. Removing even a benign looking entry can completely hose up your system. Be careful and back it up first.

I would value your opinions please as I have only just started to delve within the registry due to having problems with locking up etc.

Having deleted the 'Safe to delete' entries, there are some under 'Unsure' that I have left.
