I use CCleaner. Seems to do a good job with no problems generated.

there's no safe registry cleaner ::) you must know what you're doing when using these tools >>> avoid automatic and uncontrolled cleaning, or get prepared to reinstall Windows.

Eusing does that automatic

For maximum safety, Eusing Free Registry Cleaner will make a backup of the repaired entries. You will be able to restore any changes made using the software by choosing Restore registry backup

CCleaner does backup your Register first before cleaning incase you make a mistake ;)

yea...but not fully automatic, it will ask (can be removed) and you say yes or no. Eusing does it automatic always in the background

I use Eusing also. It's a trusty registry cleaner - like MV RegClean.

I am now helping someone whose registry cleaner  wiped out the environment variables for XP, not a pretty sight, I have spent 3 days now trying to recover the damage caused

So my answer - there is no safe registry cleaner and no requirement to use one.

Qim, you've used the correct word: "safe".
The deeper you clean, the most probability of doing s**t...
CCleaner never brought me trouble.
Also, Auslogic Registry Cleaner seems to be safe to run.

Backup your registry with ERUNT before regardless the cleaner you'll use.

I agree, I have found CCleaner and Auslogics to be perfectly safe. In Auslogics there is an advanced cleaning mode that may not always be safe so don't use that, the standard mode is safe. Auslogics does automatic backups, CCleaner asks you if you want to make a backup. Registry Mechanic from PC Tools is another good one but it's not free.

Dch48, I've tested the advanced of Auslogic and it worked (at least for me).
But, like you said, it's not for all users.
