And I agree. As I posted earlier, using registry cleaning tools unnecessarily or incorrectly could lead to disastrous effects on your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again. For routine use, the benefits to your computer are negligible while the potential risks are great.

That does not mean however that every time CCleaner's reg cleaner tool is used that it will trash the system. It is reasonably conservative in its assessment of what could be safely removed . . . and even more so when in the hands of an experienced user.

I didn't say that. I simply said "Random registry “cleaning”, especially by a novice, is inviting disaster."
