Registry cleaners

I downloaded a registry cleaning program from the "Fresh Download" site mentioned in this forum.
When I tried it out, it found 67 invalid entries in my Win XP registry. However, in order to "clean" these, I would have had to register and pay about $20.
I thought I would try out some other programs first. I then down loaded "Registry Medic" from the Snapfile site. This took a little longer to analyze the registry, but found about twice as many "invalid entries". Again, about $20 was required to clean these.
Are any of these programs reliable, and if so which can be recommended?

I have used RegCleaner for more than a year and found it to be very useful (and free). click here

I have use dRegseeker on many computers and have deleted EVERYTHING that it finds with no adverse effects. It stores the deleted entries in a quarantine file so that you can reverse the process if necessary....it will not be necessary.

I use reseeker with confidence. Have to run it about once per week and it finds rubbish everytime.

I also run RegSeeker and have never had any problems. I have used another, might have been RegCleaner, but had to restore what it had cleaned due to problems encountered. HTH TR

Thanks for all replies. RegSeeker it is!

In light of all those glowing reports, added to my system as a replacement/addition to RegCleaner.

After Regseeker, you may want to run Regcompact:

It *may* be imagination, but booting up seems quicker with both RegSeeker and RegCompact having been loaded and run!

And one or two other bits seem to run a bit quicker.

I'm sure it does! This reminded me to run them. I'd recently uninstalled Irfanview and it left almost 100 registry entries! It's a useful program, but it does get invasive.
