That type of program is a scam, IMO. You don't need registry cleaners or boosters.

There are legitimate uses for cleaners but boosters are a scam. Microsoft knows better than some third party how to manage the registry.

Best thing you can do to keep the registry in order is to use the proper technique to remove unwanted programs. Either use an uninstaller included in the program files itself or more likely use the feature in control panel> programs and features to uninstall programs.

I agree with OtheHill. Sometimes they do more harm than good. No need for that stuff.

Agree, stay away from them.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

I use Microsoft/SysInternals Autoruns program to remove leftovers from program uninstalls. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/...

This program scans entire system drive and lets you know all entries, legitimate and leftover, that start with Windows. If you are knowlegeable enough about what you are doing, you can uncheck the leftover entries that belong to programs you have uninstalled. If nothing happens after you use your computer several days/weeks with several restarts, you can delete the unchecked entries using Autoruns or leave them because they cause no slowdown after being unchecked.

There may be other leftovers in the registry. But they do not affect Windows as long as they do not try to start with Windows.
