    Hello,
    I need help in finding a registry cleaner for my netbook which has win7 starter installed. It's a Lenovo S10-2 1G so I don't want a hoggy dog and yet I want something that is easy to use.
    Any suggestions will be much appreciated!
    Thanks.

    No. Just don't do it. Registry doesn't need to be cleaned. Leave it alone.

    You really should stay away from registry cleaners if you care about your computer. There is nothing to gain from them. You'll only cripple programs or Windows itself.

    There's only one good/safe registry Cleaner ... It's called a fresh install of Windows

    The problem with that .. It may be a long time before you discover that you have a problem ..
    Then you won't know the cause .. and a reg restore may cause even worse problems.

    Well, BEFORE you restore it, you back it up again ;)
