Hi All,

I have XP + SP1. I use Microsoft OLD RegClean.

For my XP System?

Thanks
Prabhat

Hi,

You can check out Registry Mechanic from Winguides Software.
If there is a better registry cleaner out there, do let me know.

Hi

The XP Registry manages itself very well. Using one of these so-called
Registry 'cleaners' can cause more problems than they're worth - in some
cases rendering a PC unbootable. I would suggest that you let XP manage the
Registry and not use a 'cleaner'.

Hi,

Do not use a registry cleaner in WinXP, there is no need for it.

Please read the following line:

The RegClean utility is no longer supported and has been removed from all
Microsoft download sites.

It itself says do not use anykind of regclean utility.

Hi All,

I Think all of you are telling Right. Let XP Manage its OWN Registry.

Do I understand correctly, that XP removes redundant registry entries left
behind when programmes are un-installed.

Most recent Applications will remove their Registry content when they
are uninstalled. Usually, you can check in HKLM\Software and see if
the uninstall left behind a Key Heading (Listed by Company name).
It varies from vendor to vendor. Some Uninstallers do an excellent job
of removal, and some leave pieces behind. Along with Registry keys
some uninstalls will leave the Program Files folder with customization
settings or values to retain if the program is re-installed at a later date.

This is also my past experience. I now use the programme "Total Install" to
install and if necessary uninstall a programme. This appears to remove all
programme entries in the register when a programme is uninstalled.

Wesley is correct, of course.

The proper way to deal with the registry is to leave it alone, unless you
need to fix a specific problem that can only be repaired by editing the
registry.

Redundant registry entries cause no harm to your computer and do not affect
its performance.

Hi Ted,

Doeas Registry Gets Load while the Windows Load? If yes Then that should
affect the System Performance if the Size grows due to Unwanted Values in
it.
