Thank you in advance for the help. I am going to be selling one of my comps and just wanted to know the best way to clean the registry?
Hello chrisw1100 and welcome to Geeks To Go
Unfortuantly here at geeks to go we do not condone registry cleaners as cleaning the registry can be a dangerous task and you would not notice any performance by doing this, here is a quote I got from sari
In general, we do not condone the use of registry cleaners. They can be extremely dangerous, especially in the hands of someone who doesn't know what they're doing. Deleting the wrong entries can render a PC unusable, and none of us want to be in the position of helping a user recover from that. There is also no evidence that cleaning out the registry has any effect on the overall speed of a PC. It will speed up searches within the registry, but that has no effect on performance.
I'm going to offer some links to additional reading about this topic.
Miekiemoes, who is an expert here and many other places, has an excellent blog here.
This is an excellent summary at WTT. The entire thread is worth reading (it was started in 2005, but is still relevant), but that post is especially worthwhile.
Also there is a similar topic which is here
