Reg Cleaners

#1
There was a thread recently on reg cleaners, i can remember that JV Powertools was recommended, but suggestions/recommendations on any other utils will be greatly accepted.

Be carefull with any or these tools...many of them find "useless" values that are actually purposefull.

often times yu will remove an entry, a month or so later, something isn't working the way it's supposed to, and you won't even assoicate the two events, though they are cause and affect

for instance, in the beginning, some of these regcleaners corupted restore.

so months later, when a restore couldn't be aquired, it was hard to figure out why the files were corrupt

things like this

try not to use the bulk removal, just do the search, then make individual decisions as to what stays and goes

now this is harder then it sounds, since some of these are going to find like 400 "useless" entries

just be carefull

Great point perris. I've tried several reg cleaners that after I cleaned with them they deleted a critical file that was needed to run a program. This happened after it indicated the file appeared safe to delete. The best and safest reg cleaner I have used and still do is
RegCleaner

Are there any RegCleaners that will actually make "backups" of the entries it cleans out? For that "just in case" senario that perris brought up. This way you could re-enter the entry into your Regestry.

Registry First Aid does, can't speak for any of the others :)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
