Try CCleaner Slim, 3rd down


Run the cleaner

Run scan for issues, click fix selected issues, make the back up

Run the scan for issues until no issues show

Hi. If you're looking for something free, then CCleaner is the best choice, that's what I use.

If you don't mind spending a few dollars, TuneUp Utilities 2007 is very worth it! TuneUp will of course have more features, etc. but both will clean your registry well.


Don't forget, if you're looking to increase PC performance, run a Disk Defragment. Running a Defragment will help organize system files so there is less searching and more processing :whistling:

(Edit: Inserted link to TuneUp)

Before "cleaning" the Registry, I strongly sugget that you back it up.

ERUNT--Emergency Recovery Utility for NT will do the job for free. This excellent application will make a complete back-up of the Registry at each boot (saves only the last 30), and each back-up file contains its own .exe that when run restores the Registry completely in just a couple of minutes. Reboot and you're good to go.

Since a complete Registry restoration includes entries for everything, ERUNT is a quick and easy way to "go back" to any day in the last month.

P.S. Most MVPs do not recommend Registry "Cleaners." Most end up creating more problems than anything. CCleaner's "Issues" seems to have few reported problems, likely because it is so conservative. Stick with that and avoid the more aggressive utilities.
