Spring Cleaning My Registry

I've been doing some cleanup of old deleted programs to get the last few keys out of my registry.

While doing this I noticed that under HKCU/Typelib there are a ton of keys that merely say "(no value set)".

Now, I'm not really worried about all these keys since my computer is running fine, but in the spirit of cleaning my registry do I need all of the ones with "no value set" or can I get rid of them. I know the ones with values are important, but what about all of the ones with no value?

Thanks.

Downlosd and run regscrubber and don't worry about keys with no values set. I would not delete any key that you are not sure exactly what is.
