Have used NTRegOpt on it's own quite a number of times on XP Home and its one of my favourite programmes. It does the job with no frills. The only thing I make a point of doing is closing down all unnecessary programmes beforehand and then, when it asks me if I want to reboot, I do it immediately. (My understanding is that, if you don't, anything subsequently written to the registry will not be saved).
Also, it is the only free optimiser that I could find. There are other products classed as registry defragmenters/optimisers, for which you have to pay, but Diskeeper or PerfectDisk will defragment the registry files so all you need is an optimiser.
Have a look at Sysinternals PageDefrag. I've never used it as a boot time defrag tool but, by opening the programme, you can quickly tell whether or not the registry is fragmented. Its in the Performance Tools section at http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/utilities.shtml
Glad you brought this programme up.

Here is my "tried and tested" freeware contribution to your rejuvinated operating system. Cacheman 5.50. I don't use it as memory optimiser on XP but you can set it up to "hide to tray icon" at start up. The tray icon appears as a number, ie. the amount of free ram you have available. (I also used it to increase the icon cache so that now, when I open a folder full of icons, they appear instantly rather than having to watch them load up). http://www.outertech.com/index.php?_charisma_page=product&id=2
Good luck and best wishes.
