Registry Cleaners?

#1
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

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.
