Grab it! It's sort of a CCleaner alternative which has infinitely more capacity. It was offered earlier this year. The Pro Version has a lot more than the free version I was using.
I used the free version for a few weeks and liked it so I decided to try the free update.
I did a deep registry cleaning about an hour ago and just noticed it broke the TV Guide on my media center. Time to run system restore.
I generally stay away from Registry cleaners. Removing dead entries from registry don't speed up the system anyway. If you must use it, always backup the registry first.
I agree that registry cleaners can be dangerous. Before I run one (or install new software) I set a restore point and run ERUNT. In this case IO Bits backup worked and I got the Guide function back. I then re-ran the scan and only deleted about 300 of the 575 items it found. I have found that once in awhile cleaning with CCleaner and compressing with NTRegOpt does help.
