Hello there, I keep reading throughout numerous posts that registry cleaning is actually harmful for your PC and does more damage then good. I was just curious as to the reasoning for this, and what sort of damage could i be looking at here?

Re: Registry cleaning?

Programs that claim to "Fix" your Registry, usually Fix it the same way a vet fixes a puppy.

Unless you know what you are doing, they will often remove valid entries and sometimes make the system not stary up . .

At best, they do no good . . "Cleaning" the registry will make no difference in how it runs
