    "I haven't and never will implement a Registry cleaner since it's of little practical use on anything other than Win2K terminal servers and developing one that's both safe and effective requires a huge amount of application specific knowledge."

    By the same savvy cat who made this comment. ;) Yeah, what does he know? :D

    I don't know Mr. Russinovich personally but IMO, there is not much about Windows he doesn't know. MS recognizes his expertise too (as Ron's article notes.) He may arguably be one of the most knowledgeable Windows people on the planet.

    FWIW... I had not read your quote before but I agree with it. I have never seen any non-marketing related, objective evidence that automated registry cleaners make consistent, reliable improvements to a PC's health. Some auto cleaners are probably safer than others but many seem to be quite aggressive (which IMO, translates to scary!) Anyway, whatever the case may be, I steer clear of allowing auto registry cleaners free reign on my PCs...
