    This checks your reg and shows you ALL EMPTY CLSID KEYS.. (Every program gets assigned a CLSID key and if you no longer have it,the key is usually cleared (If its not deleted totally its left EMPTY))

    I ran this and it found 51 "value not set" keys and i removed them all

    Does CCleaner also do this? If not this might be a good addition.

    Hello,
    Just a piece of advice from a seasoned desktop tech. Using a registry cleaner is like doing open heart surgery with a lawnmower. I have seen those cause more damage then good.

    I have never had a problem with CCleaner jacking my machine. I run it regularly and swear by it.

    CCleaner and tuneUp utilities.
    I've been recomending that 2 programs, in that order. So far no problems at all. On the newest windows there should be less problems with the registry.

    CCleaner does do this, but registry cleaners don't help nowadays, I've yet to see a benchmark that shows ANY improvement at all on a modern OS. CCleaner is great for cleaning up unused/temp files though.

    Agree

    In fast most benchmarks show that the performance may actually be worse

    I haven't seen any benchmark testing but have heard many people complain about slow machines that improved after running a registry cleaner. That testimony is enough for me.
