    Hi Joe:
    Have you used it, & if so, how do you like it? I've recently used & been impressed with RegSeeker(1.45Beta).zip. I wonder how they compare.

    Hi Phil

    I have use CCleaner for quite a while and find it very useful. CCleaner does have registry cleaning options but also removes many files from a system. The CCleaner homepage lists the type of files and registry settings that it removes.

    I have not used RegSeeker before but I have just tried it and initial impressions are that it is a very useful tool. Though some of the things they do overlap, RegSeeker and CCleaner complement each other and I think they are both worth having. Thanks for the info about RegSeeker.

    Phil,

    I agree with Tony's assesment about the apps being complementary. I will add that I never routinely run 'cleaner' type apps and let them change things anymore. After several "oh c**p what have I done" experiences, I've come to the conclusion that they do more harm than good when used routinely. I use them on systems that have either malware problems or severe performance issues. Periodically on the PCs I personally use at work and home I'll run ccleaner, hijackthis, etc. just to see what the analysis says.

    Thanks Tony & Joe:
    I'll give it a shot.
    Joe: I guess I experiment too much. I run cleaners all the time (well, I did with Win 98) & so far, never got into trouble. The RegSeeker that I mentioned above is the most aggressive one that I've used. Maybe I'm too trusting in my backups. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Phil,

    If think you'll find XP to be much 'stronger' and more resilient then Win98. However, backups are imperative for anyone with any OS especially if you 'experiment' frequently.
