No version of Windows needs a registry cleaner/optimizer of any kind.
They are useless, and most of the time do more harm than good.
Best advice here? Stay away from them.

I like system mechanic. Never made things worse, always made it better.

Ya system mechanic is good. Most of the registry optimizers don't work on win 7. So ask before try. Even antiviruses cause a problem with win7.

Answer to Youngster's question:
Yes if you install/uninstall/test a lot of software, cracked or not.
All versions of Windows benefit from a clean, lean & mean registry.
This, of course, includes Windows 7 x32 & x64.

I'm running Windows 7 x64 and Wintools.net works well, takes out what its supposed to without doing any damage. I've tested other registry cleaners with Windows 7 x64 and most resulted in failure, not being able to boot back into Windows......nothing Acronis couldn't handle.

Google for comodo registry cleaner. They have a new one out, in fact it's available as a portable that does need installed and I think it will find things, allow you to reboot and test for any problems before it actually deletes the keys. Not bad for free. I like it.

Thanks for the tip. I gave up on testing registry cleaners but decided to try Comodo after reading your post. It did a good job and the computer rebooted without issues. Thanks.

While it is usually good to have something to clear out old registry entries that point to files/locations that no longer exist, you aren't going to see a performance benefit of any kind from any registry "optimizers".

Even then, there are advantages to leaving old registry entries in place, especially if its application settings data, say if you re-install the application at a later point in time.
