I don't advise messing with the registry as you put it and I am not a big fan of Registry Cleaners. The only Registry Cleaner I would advise as being safe to use is contained within CCleaner which if you haven't already got it can be downloaded from here enter link description here Number 4 in list.

Yes

Leave registry cleaners alone as they can often do more harm than good and even render a system unbootable.

CCleaners inbuilt registry toll is the only one I would ever recommend as it is completely safe - have been using it for years without any problems.

I would recommend Winaso Registry Optimizer ...the free version will correct up to 10 errors at a time.

If you type in 'winaso' into the PCA search box, you will see previous posts on the 'pros & cons' of this utility.

I have used the free version for a number of years ... and I like it.

I agree with all that has been said about CCleaner - its registry cleaner is 100% reliable in my experience.
