Ncleaner? might clean too much. 
The program is very nice and quite comprehensive, but it is also Dangerous, it can clean things that would deem XP, and more so, Vista None-Functional. Before you use it the first time, go all over the settings (Do not count on the default settings). If you are not totally sure about an item, uncheck it. If the author would provide a more comprehensive description when pointing to an entry it might Help to make it more secure. The Interface is Nicely done Visually, but confusing content wise, there is No go back in most sub menus, and you have to click Home and maneuver back to the previous point that you were at. However it is Free and worthwhile to endure the learning curve.
don't use it....just posted it in forum 8)

I favor TweakNow RegCleaner Standard (free) because it allows you to make a registry back-up first and then when scanning of the registry is complete, it will list those entries that are safe to remove, those that are unsafe to remove, and a third list that is marked unknown ... meaning that it could be or could not be safe to remove the entries in the third listing.

I use TweakNow Regcleaner Standard as it was listed by MS on the Vista list of approved free software.
It has a nice interface and I have had no problems so far.
