  • Avoid using a registry cleaner.

    A computer is a complex, highly sensitive piece of machinery. Just allowing some unknown piece of software to blast away at data stored in your registry will buy you nothing but grief.

    Windows can be run indefintely without ever "cleaning" its registry - whatever "cleaning" means.

    Registry cleaners are designed to make their own market, preying on people who don't know any better because they make what they do sound like something you need.  They are advertised in the same channels as diet and male enhancement pills.  That should tell you something.

    Windows 7 has an unprecedented amount of self-maintenance already built in. Trust it to keep itself working.

    Ouch! Please don't yell at us. We can hear you if you type normally,
    in mixed case.

    Registry cleaning programs are all snake oil. Cleaning of the
    registry isn't needed and is dangerous. Leave the registry alone and
    don't use any registry cleaner. Despite what many people think, and
    what vendors of registry cleaning software try to convince you of,
    having unused registry entries doesn't really hurt you.
    The risk of a serious problem caused by a registry cleaner erroneously
    removing an entry you need is far greater than any potential benefit
    it may have.

    Let me point out that neither I nor anyone else who warns against the
    use of registry cleaners has ever said that they always cause
    problems. If they always caused problems, they would disappear from
    the market almost immediately. Many people have used a registry
    cleaner and never had a problem with it.

    Rather, the problem with a registry cleaner is that it carries with it
    the substantial risk of having a problem. And since there is no
    benefit to using a registry cleaner, running that risk is a very bad
    bargain.
