I'm looking for a good registry cleaner for vista. Are there ones that are better than others? Any recommendation is welcome.

Thanks, Aaron

IMO, Registry cleaners are useless (snakeoil).
Letting a 3rd party piece of software, manipulate the most important cog
in the wheel of your OS, is not a good idea.

They all claim there are hundreds (thousands) of errors, but the benefits gained by running one are minute.

I agree with ksiemb but I do use the Registry cleaner part of CCleaner form http://www.piriform.com because it only skims over the top and takes out the unnecessary clutter the Registry builds up over time. It is genuinely free and therefore has no reason to make promises which aren't necessary or cannot be kept.

Apart from that, I can see no better way of speeding up Windows Vista other than getting rid of it in favour of a decent Linux OS. :D
