Crap Removal


What program do you recommend to clean up registry errors? I tried the new Norton Utilities, and it won’t fix all the errors it finds, even in safe mode.

We like CCleaner ( ), Piriform’s freeware crap-removal tool. Its registry cleaner does a bang-up job. Many of our readers swear by Comodo Registry Cleaner ( ), as well. We should note, however, that cleaning your registry won’t necessarily speed up your computer, but it can fix errors, compatibility issues, remove old Start Menu items, and tidy up your file associations.

CCleaner includes a powerful registry-cleaning utility that we've found works wonders.
