I use 2 - TuneUp Utilities (not free but you can download a free trial) CCleaner - freeware.

TuneUp does a lot of other things and is a great tool to buy, but if you only want a free cleaner then CCleaner should do you fine.

I've never seen the need to use one on Vista.

Tolerance is a sign of weakness.

There was plenty of junk left over. I ran it and it came back with a bunch. System is booting and running fine. Thanks for the suggestions.

I use CCleaner, but lately I discovered a program called registry mechanic (by PCTools) which has a freeware version you can download. The freeware does a full scan, but only repairs a selected group of the errors it might find.

My question is..

When I run CCleaner nowadays, I encounter zero errors. Yet, Registry Mechanic does something it calls a 'deep scan' and finds a few hundred errors. Of course, you need to pay $30 dollars to repair them. It's an award winning program, but I'm wondering if there's any real benefit.

Anyone have any experience with this program, or any sort of feedback they can give me?

Thanks in advance,
Avo

Ayn Rand is the author for people who want to act like complete douche-bags, but don't have the balls to just admit that they are douche-bags.
"There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs."

If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day

:yes:
