    P>R>O,

    There really is no best, it's what works for you and your system.
    Such a thread exists here, and a "poll" here (watch the dates ;) ).

    I tried out several looking for a balance between thoroughness and safety. I decided on RegSeeker.

    I'm also currently using Registry Mechanic 5, and happy to report that it is doing an excellent job. It recaps each specific entry selected for repair/deletion, with a "severity" rating, and then creates a restore point before making any changes. If something is deleted by mistake or that is necessary, you can then select one of the saved restore points, and choose to select to reinstall all of or any specific entry from the selected restore point. Definitely no complaints thus far.

    CCleaner is a freeware utility primarily for disk cleaning, but it has a built-in registry cleaner as well. Like Registry Mechanic, you can analyze by running a scan before any changes are made. CCleaner's registry cleaner has even found things that other registry cleaners missed (like Fix-It Utilities). Even though it is under-rated by many (including the vendor), it appears to be a pretty nice freebie registry cleaner.

    I downloaded RegSeeker yesterday and it found tons of stuff. I had a lot of them in red and some in green font. Is it ok to delete "all" of them, or just the green? Ihave had problems with registry First Aid and Registry Mechanic deleting stuff it shouldn't so am really careful about what I clean. Help, please..... :(

    I like Regseeker too.

    Macdon, Regseeker has a little box in the bottom left hand corner saying 'Backup before deletion' ...so tick that, and 'if' it ever gets something wrong (no registry cleaner being 100% perfect), you can easily restore the backup file.

    Having said that, it's never got anything wrong on my computer...and yes, the first time it found 300 odd entries to be cleaned.
