You are best advised to ask their support here: http://forums.techguy.org/reviews/9...

However one wonders why you should attempt to clean your registry which is not advised unless you are confident in what you are doing. Your system depends on the Registry for efficient operation and cleaning entries without knowing their function is not advised.

✔ Best Answer
Invalid entries rarely cause issues. They are just left overs that sit there being ignored and make no difference to performance. Ignore all the blurb you get from registry cleaner providers.

Running a registry cleaner and allowing it to delete a stack of entries you don't understand, for no particular reason, runs the risk that it will remove some valid ones too. Then you do get issues.

CCleaner's registry cleaner is about the safest one around. But why bother?

Careful too with EasyCleaners other features, such as duplicate files. There are often good reasons for duplication so you are best to leave well alone.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

In a general way registry cleaners don't need updating. However if EasyCleaner has not been updated since 2006 that was before Windows 7 was released. That might have a bearing on why it didn't function, or it could just be a bad install.

As said, if you must go this way use CCleaner. This does a whole lot more than just clean the registry. It is in wide use and I have not picked up any negatives about the registry cleaning facility. CCleaner is probably less thorough, which is a good thing.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Stupid windows has has this dumb registry to force their will on us. Problem is that many programs write stuff there and can't remove it. It also is a place to store malware and code to prevent double trials of programs and such.

The only good cleaner is a full reload. Most of these products are sort of questionable. Refrain from installing junk programs, refrain from installing programs with spyware or trialware. Be sure to have a good security suite on at all times.
