You really do NOT want to mess with the registry unless you absolutely
have to, that simple, certainly not on a regular basis.
1 MS update something that changes a registry key, along comes your
utility and changes it back because it knows no better, "Something"
stops working sooner of later.
2. Old or unused entries do NOT slow your system down to any noticeable
3. The registry is only accessed when it is needed, so key present / key
absent the access takes about the same time.
Of course people have different views, but if it ain't broke don't fix
it works well for me
