    not too sure about system ninja; I've heard that it can crater your machine by hosing the registry. I do know for a fact that CCleaner has been known to do that as well; generally any 'registry cleaner' needs to be avoided.

    That said, I've never used System Ninja so I can't speak for it. Just repeating what I've head.

    I have been guilty in the past of using the crap cleaner registry cleaner, but with no ill effects.

    I remember in my newbie days using Norton System Works 2002. I actually had errors from improperly uninstalled apps and I used the registry cleaner and it fixed the problem.

    But valis is right. The risks outweigh the possible benefits with registry cleaners and despite my folly years ago I highly recommend against using any registry cleaner.

    Thanks for pointing that out in the library sulasno. A good explanation of what CCleaner does and a reasonable explanation posted by Ent on why we at TSG don't recommend registry cleaners...(y) What are System Ninja's specs?
