Registry Defragging is at best useless and at worst dangerous and may disable your computer from functioning correctly (or at all). This feature's been requested a multiplicity of times. Everytime the answer from the longtime members is "this is not a safe idea"

 

on top of that

 

Slowdown due to registry bloat is thus far less of an issue in modern versions of Windows. Defragmenting the registry files (e.g. using a Microsoft-supported tool such as PageDefrag), has likewise been de-emphasized due to this increased efficiency, and is largely an automated process under Vista.

Reading so many topics here, I don't understand user's facination with messing with the Windows Registry. :blink: I rarely touch the Registry. Very little (if anything) to be gained and so dangerous. About the only time I can remember using CCleaner to clean the Registry is if I'm having a problem uninstalling/installing/reinstalling a program. Even then, I only let it remove entries directly related to the program in question and I ALWAYS have it create a backup.

 

Just my 2 cents. <_<

in my years of experience i highly do not recommend using any registry Defragmentation programs because Ive had experience of the registry getting corrupted and there is no benefit

 

also never use any registry cleaners you will always mess up the computer that way

 

instead use a disk Defragmentation programs only

To address the original poster, there's no need to defrag the system registry (not the hive files) because it's not comparable to a fragmented file system.

It's true to say that the creation and deletion of registry keys could lead to trapped redundant data however this has no bearing on the performance of your machine.

As for registry cleaners there's no such thing as safe cleaning, any program that hacks off registry keys using a set of rules always carries an element of risk.

I'd never use it cos I see more possible harm than benefit.

 

Piriform has a good reputation for relatively safe products. Problems arising after implementing a registry defragger would tarnish that reputation.

 

If you enjoy rolling the dice there are other programs that will do this for you.

I don't think this will be very advantageous unless your registry was fragmented in the thousands. /opinion
