    Registry Cleaning Software?

    Hey guys, what exactly is the point of Registry Cleaning Software? Does it just remove empty keys etc? Is it worth the money; will it improve performance?


    Thanks!

    I use Reg Scrub XP also. Works fine and is free. I use it on Win2k. I've used registry cleaners for years. M$ made their own many years ago. They solve lots of problems from clearing bad keys to helping remove old software that didn't un-install properly. Probably best to back up your registry prior to using just in case but I've never had any problems.

    Cleaners remove 'empty' keys, invalid values and obsolete references in your registry. You can buy them, but there are excellent freeware ones, like the aforementioned RegScrubXP.

    You can also try:

    1) RegSeeker

    2) TweakNow RegCleaner

    Ok, great. The reason I ask is because I have a customer who was looking at getting one and I thought I knew what they did but I didn't know of any good free ones because I think he was looking to purchase one online. Thanks guys!

    I use CCleaner. It works well for me, and it's completely free. As a matter of fact, I install it on all custom builds I sell. A link for ya:
