    Using regedit and trying to identify what specific registy entry corresponds with what particular program is a disaster waiting to happen for the novice user.

    I have used many registry cleaners over the years and have never ended up with a "door stop" for a pc.

    Orphans and duplicates may be harmless, but they take up space and hard drives cost money.

    And yes, Auslogics gives you a performance benchmark before and after registry defragmentation. The diffrence can be a couple of seconds boot time.

    I totally agree, Fimbles - also, logically if your system has to read a bunch of disused/orphaned entries, it must take a finite amount of time & power (ok, it could just be milliseconds, I haven't checked!)
