As a gamer and avid computer tech I tend to install and uninstall alot of games and programs to test them out. They leave their traces in my registry though which i cant be bothered to manually dig up and remove though. Is there a good program compatible with WIndows 7 64bit that will clean up old, unused, and unneeded registry entries for me?
(Solved) - Windows 7 Registry Cleaner(13 posts)
Might I suggest getting REVO Uninstaller? It does a VERY good job of rooting through the registry on deletes. Just use the last option and for safety's sake, review all offered items to delete.
Only 2 other registry cleaners I'd suggest is CCleaner and Glary's Registry cleaner (also include with the Glary Utilities). Again, with both of these, watch what it will take out. It will remove needed items like Extensions it thinks are not in use, fonts, and some other things.
Yet again, Revo is good, but not perfect. You really need to get your hands dirty and get in there yourself.
Not that it matters that much. A few hundred/thousand dead registry entries are not going to interfere with your system, or slow it down.
ok thanks for all the great suggestions!
Now i also got a magazine from my brother, WINDOWS, and it came with a cd. Tell me if these apps are worth using:
Open office 3.1
Better, Faster, Stronger:
Auslogics Disk Defrag
Team 11108 Forums
thats all thats listed on the case
anything worth using there (i know for some but others im not sure)
EDIT: Cd is labeled MAXIMUM CD Special Edition: Winter 2010
Thank you all for the help! I used a combination of Revo Uninstaller and CCleaner to fix up my pc a bit, and the performance is a bit better, as well as about 30+ GB more of space on my hard drive now!
