The only way to 'clean' the registry is to do it manually. In most cases the
software that purports to be able to clean the registry causes more problems
than it solves. If you are not confident enough to manually remove defunct
registry entries then leave the registry well alone and keep as far away
from registry cleaners as you possible can.
