I found it was never a good idea to run a registry cleaner.

However, I found this seemingly different way of doing so with the link I included.

Does anyone have an opinion of this way of cleaning the registry?

It's pure BS.  There are often hundreds, even thousands of dead or invalid links in the registry. They hurt nothing. There is no valid reason to ever run a registry cleaner.


Having said that, I usually run CCleaner registry cleaner every couple months just because it makes me feel good. It does absolutely nothing to improve the performance or stability of my computer. The only people who say it does are the people who write these programs.


As long as you continue to have good Macrium backups then it won't hurt you to play with these but just be aware they will do nothing positive for your computer.
