This is a discussion on RegClean Pro within the Microsoft Office support forums, part of the Tech Support Forum category. Can you tell me if Microsoft RegClean Pro is a valid defrag tool, or is it something that's bogus?

I doubt it's a Microsft Product, I didn't find anything on the MS download site. Registry cleaners are not Defraggers. Reg Cleaners are NOT recommended and will usually cause more harm than good. That includes all the garbage programs that have infomercials on TV claiming they'll speed up your system.

If you need a defragger, use the built in tool in Windows or Defraggler

It appears to be from a Microsoft Partner, rather than an MS product. It's yet another Registry Cleaner. Fred Garvin is correct - it will do more harm than good.

Have a look at these links for more information.
