neither. Anything that says it is a 'system optimizer' generally will do a lot more harm than good.

What is it you are trying to accomplish?

don't sweat it. The registry isn't big enough to get fragmented enough to effect performance. However, running 'optimizers' on the registry can render your pc into a nice, expensive doorstop. With W7, you don't need to worry about much; I just set my defrag to auto defrag every 4 months, and that's it.

anytime you see anything that says 'system optimizer' be very wary; these apps will usually return false positives and the vast majority of them do far more harm than good.
