    Registry cleaners aren't worth the trouble. You can easily mess up your computer's Windows registry and render Windows unbootable or have your programs not able to start up. Avoid them! :thumbd:

    Be careful w/ something that says removed any unneeded files in your pc especially if it's a registry cleaner...it could possibly removed some important things unnoticed. How much more if the program was new and still unpopular and are not rated with reviews.

    If your knowledge bout pc are not that advanced better not to use any registry cleaner at all.

    Yeah I don't want to use any registry cleaner anymore every single one of them rendered my PC with troubles except for CCleaner which is very conservative. I just wanted to get some feedback on this program as I saw it mentioned on another program and I have never ever seen it.

    Thanks guys

    It did cause trouble for me as well. Blue screen which I never experienced before using WRC or after I removed it. *knocking on wood* To add insult to injury I only selected to use the least aggressive selection. :mad: That was when using XP.

    This saying Registry Cleaner are bad and will kill your
    system is total bull

    can they hurt your system? YES

    but when used properly they can be a good tool

    and how is that ?

    do you want people to go through every single registry entry and research what it's for before they choose to delete it?

    Also, why does CCleaner never break anything as it uses a more conservative method of cleaning?

    I tried Auslogics Registry Cleaner in the past and as long as you don't tick the advanced categories, it will not cause any troubles

    It's not a new product, it's been around for a few years. I usually test every version of software released, but have not tested this for a while. But, last time I used it, I had problems with false positives - making it unsafe to use. According to the version history mist new releases just update the spyware database, and don't improve the registry cleaning.

    Not really, it's more to do with better programming so it doesn't mistakenly think valid file entries are bad.

    like i said when used properly they can be a good tool

    I think CC is far too "what's the word for this? non aggressive"

    way too little cleaning for my needs "BUT" for a novice user
    it would most likely be one of the safest

    A far better one is Vit Registry Fix and still be pretty safe
