I would say so, they really do fix errors in registry, but only at a certain extent. But every little bit counts. I remeber I was experinceing problems and low system prefomance, I got a registry cleaner and fixed up the probelm.
There are many utilities out there that claim they will solve errors and crashes by cleaning out your registry, getting rid of all the broken entries in there. Is that really necessary?
Depending on what the entry is, Yes. It can cause a few problems. For example (This is just an example, worse things can happen) if there is a entry missing for the uninstall then you will not be able to uninstall that specific program.
Do those broken entries really cause crashes and stability problems?
Well, I guess it depends on what cleaner you use. I use CCleaner and Tune Up Utils for my registry problems.
I've seen theses cleaners cause more problems than they fix.
Well most registry cleaners show you the resualts before you want to remove them, so you can select which ones you want removed for yourself.
Do we really want to trust them with correctly detremining that entry A is broken and leads nowhere and should be removed?
