I have been running a raid array on an XP pro box that I use mostly for graphics work. The machine is about 5 years old and still runs pretty well. I have never run any type of registry cleaner because I have read good and bad things about using them and can't risk and os damage. Is there any risk in running CCleaner at all? Thanks.

I've been using CCleaner for over 6 years now on multiple computers and OS's and I haven't ran into a single issue yet. However CCleaner isn't as intensive as some other software but it should do the job. If I were you I would set a restore point if you have the hard drive room.

Make sure it is the registry and not a virus. Try running Malwarebytes first. If it is a virus, you'll probably have to actually re-image the machine.

Suer you can use CCleaner, but you can also use your operating system to recover errors. Such function is in your computer and you don't need any software at all. Just make a recovering point and there won't be any errors at all.

I suggest running Malwarebytes before the restore and then after the restore. Hope that helps!

If freeware, I'll go for RegCleaner. But if you want performance and reliability, I suggest the TuneUp Utilities Suite. Costs a bit, but it pays-off afterwards.

I suggest you CCleaner. It is the best software to remove unused files and clear internet history.

I have been using Tune Up Utilities for a couple of years. It isn't expensive and covers 3 PCs as well.
