Hmm, watch out for unexplained problems cropping up from nowhere. Registry
cleaners, though they don't cause a problem every time, generally cause more
problems than they fix. Sometimes those problems don't surface right away
either. If it removes a needed entry but you don't access that feature
until some time down the line, then it won't show up until later when that
feature is invoked, and it can be hard to track back to what caused it.
In my opinion the only safe way to use a registry cleaner is in the hands of
an experienced user, who uses it only for suggestions on what to remove, but
does not let it do any automatic cleaning.
