    Registry Cleaners?

    On my recently deceased computer, I had downloaded a registry cleaner many
    years ago. It was simply called "Registry Cleaner" and it was freeware.
    Looking around the modern internet all the newer registry cleaners are for
    sale only.
    The one had was terrific: cleaned the registry, uninstalled programs, etc.
    Is there anything out there right now? BW

    What David B. Said...

    CCleaner is free, and I use it for uninstalling 0NLY! Do not use oil on
    your snake.

    Looks like you talk about CCleaner ( Download CCleaner 2.22.968 - FileHippo.com ). But as already said, I would obstain from registry cleaning. For Vista it makes little sense and can damage your system.

    Hello,
    I use JV16 Power Tools v.1.3, a free version. Can be found using search
    engine.
    I have only used this to removed registry entries from programs and
    applications that I installed, including problem installations. After using
    this I enter regedit and search and remove items listed for the program,
    application removed.
    I have two complete back-up methods, in case of encountering a problem.
    Used with "98se, Me, XP, Vista, 32 and 64 bit. So far no problems using this
    program.
    take care.
    beamish.
