Hello. Some might call me a "neat-freak" because I am possessed with the notion that everything must be clean and organized. It is no surprise that I try to keep my registry as clean as possible. Despite reformats every couple months, I am not aware of any reliable way to test free registry cleaning programs. I have found tons of them online, but I am wondering if anyone could share their favorite, most effective registry cleaner? I looked on the TechSpot downloads section and there are 3-4 alone on there. Look on MajorGeeks and you will find a ton more. I tried easy cleaner and it found like 120 entries total. I tried Karen's Registry Pruner and found 1000+ entries found. I am trying to find a program that will check for entries linking nowhere and entries that are no longer valid. So, I am wondering if anyone could share their favorite, most effective and accurate freeware registry cleaner. I have read a lot of reviews, but I have not been able to find any sort of comparison of which works most effectively? A little side note -- does anyone know how one might run such a test? Thanks! - Technel Note: I am also asking so I can find the best one to use after I reformat this weekend (I want to give it a test-run beforehand).
