Default Registry Cleaners

Registry Cleaners

The consensus is that these Cleaners can cause many problems.

A WORD TO THE WISE IS SUFFICIENT.

Below is a c/p from GAOTD June 27/16.

After scanning found 880 "errors", after checking a random sample (20 reg files) of the reported errors 90% of them were false positives, had I gone ahead and let it "fix" the errors the chances that my machine would have been trashed. There is absolutely no need to clean your registry, cleaning your registry has no impact on computer's performance, unless there is a corrupted reg file (unlikely). These programs are nothing more than snake oil and are more likely to cause more problems than they claim to fix. I only installed to have a quick look see after reading the comments posted. Dangerous if believe the reports this and other such programs give. They are only trying to make you think it is a "MUST HAVE" program. Didn't let it fix anything and uninstalled.
