    I've used RegCleaner for several years and NEVER had a problem. It even deletes the programs in your register that you had un-installed and it left files there.

    You can download it free here: http://majorgeeks.com/download460.html

    After install I go to: tools, registry cleanup, do them all. It automatically makes a backup so you can't mess anything up.

    I also recommend SpyBot Search and Destroy.
    I talked to a few of the minions here at work and they recommended either Regclean or Regcure.

    I went ahead and downloaded the Regcure version. $39.99 and ran it last night and didn't have one issue with anything much to my suprise.

    After doing that, defragment your computer. Defragmenting should be done on a regular basis especially if you do a lot of downloading of files/software.

    If you are going to use a reg cleaner, create a restore point.

    Another option is to run msconfig & turn off all the unnecessary programs that fire up under startup everytime you reboot.

    If you are running Norton Antivirus, get rid of it & run Avast (it's free). Norton is a CPU hog & will slow up your laptop.
    Is it safe?
    Is it safe? Of course it is safe.

    Webby recommended it to me & he uses it. He is in the buisiness. If it's good enough for him, it's good enough for me.

    I will also give this a try but my laptop seemed to be better after doing a few things you guys suggested.

    Re: Registry Cleaning

    Your best bet is to simply lay off the porn sites...or at least find ones that don't plant things on your computer.
    :P

    Re: Registry Cleaning

    I, too have used Regcleaner and I also have "Advanced System Optimizer" and "CCleaner." I have found that one picks up something the others may have missed. They are all free and I run them all every week. Never a problem.
