Registry Cleaners. Which do I believe?

RegScrub reports 6 problems but RegistryFix finds 353 problems. I set up a restore point before running them but haven't used either to fix the reported problems.

It really all depends on what the indidual program defines as a problem.

can you give examples of what they find?

Good question. I've just done the same with Reg Cleaner and Registry Mechanic - the first shows just 6, the other 160!

temp files - temp internet files -cookies - etc before running the reg cleaners as some list all these as faults ;) Especially the trial ones that need money to activate - they find everything that a normal rebbot of trhe computer clears -

-Good test - run reg cleaner to get report - then reboot and run again and see the difference ;)

That's why I use click here it's like a gentle soap compared to bleach. Delete everything it finds and no problems.

I think Sethhaniel has hit the nail on the head. I didn't initially realise that RegFix was just a trial version and not freeware.
