I have said in the past that registry cleaners were largely unnecessary with XP because the OS can tolerate bloat. There are some exceptions to that blanket statement, and Fred Langa explains the schools of thought well. Fred is a respected tech writer, and he compared some of the top registry cleaners, and offers his opinion of the ones that are useful and which ones are not. He also shares his thoughts on why and when registry cleaners should be used, what to expect from them, and what the risks are.


I have been reading the LangalistPlus for a few years, and I learn something useful or interesting in each issue. The searchable archives are a wealth of information. If you are not already familiar with Fred Langa, check out the Langalist.

for grins and giggles, check this page everyday:

For Fred's diagnostic Browsertune: check your PC.

Thanks for posting that :tazz: I think it is a great explanation of what Reg Cleaners to use.

I still think that it is best not to use one, they cause to many problems.
