I would be very careful about using registry cleaners.

To answer your question, it would help to know which registry cleaning program you are considering. Some programs might have restore point deleting functions as part of the program's package.

Most will save a copy of the registry before making any changes. Having said that, I wouldn't touch them with a barge pole.

I use Eusing Free Registry Cleaner all the time, once a week usually, and it's free, reboot after running it, no it does not affect the restore points, yes it does make a backup, no it has never caused any problems

hey guys thanks for the reply, i shouldave been a bit more specific,i have system mechanic. i allways back up registry with mechanic prior to cleaning. restore points are not actually deleted. however sometimes i get"restore could not restore system please select another restore point" no other point works either.. most of the times it works out ok.but just when i need a good restore point its in the crapper.. ive also noticed that after some windows updates the same thing happens..so im very leary of cleaning in the system areas. ive not had any issues with browser and cache cleaning with sys mechanic

1. You might do Microsoft Error-checking on your C drive to be sure you have a good drive.

2. You might do SFC /SCANNOW http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929833
to be sure your system files are good.
