+1 for CCleaner, there are some good tools included with it such as a registry cleaner.

I dont think you ever need a registry cleaner. I have never used one nor felt the need for one.

Any registey cleaner is not really fixing errors, there are no errors in the registry.

All there usually is is old entries left over from programs you may have deleted, but they do no harm and do not slow your computer down.

Most of these registry cleaners are a con. And in fact can do more harm than good if they delete genuine entries from your registry.

Note also that most of these registry cleaner review sites are a scam as they are sponsored by the companies who make registry cleaners so dont believe them either.

Exactly! But if you do want to use by use CCleaner as stated above. The latest version has some new tools. Be careful with the "Wipe" tool
