I use Reg seeker have done for years as i find it good and free
but i also know most of these apps don't pick everything up that
should be deleted and you should run 2 or 3 different ones most of the time.
I used to use reg cleaner as well but for some reason that doesn't work anymore can't even run the thing.
Which reg cleaning apps do you all use or have found to be good.

lol usually that finds about 4 issues i suggest you get regseeker m8
probably find about 2000 old reg entries on yer pc
reg cleaner the link i posted picks up things regseeker doesn't
does reg cleaner work for you guys on xp pro sp2?
EDIT: ok the one i used to use in conjunction with regseeker is now called
reg supreme.I remember the first time i ran regseeker found about a thousand invalid entries on mine heh.

CCleaner only found 120 odd issues which i cleaned.

Reg seeker found 1500. BUT it keeps getting stuck at 99% and doesnt seem to work properly :( I try to stop it at 99% and clean the 1500 its already found but when you close the program it has some errors in french and doesnt delete them. (i have run the program with admin rights)

Regseeker is the best I've ever used on XP and I used that for years. JV's powertools was good but slightly buggy as sometimes I would select entries to be removed but upon clicking the delete/remove button nothing would happen.

I'm a bit nervous about using regcleaners in Vista though, so I avoid them.

I have wondered about using any kind of Reg Cleaners with my Vista x64, as I wonder if they will mess up my system or not.

Would people recommend I use any programs with Vista, or does this x64 version sort out itself?

Should I be using any other programs with this? I got CCleaner, PerfectDisk 2008 & Tupe-up Utilities 2008.

I used ccleaner a good while back and it messed up some settings (can't remember what exactly) and had to do a system restore. Are there any do's and dont's with this software?
