Uniblue System Tweak And Registry Boost Can I live without this ?
Posted 03 November 2010 - 12:07 AM
Now I find out you all seem to the think its either a waste or dangerous.
So my questions are now
I have it, can it be of any use to me at all or should I just bin it and wave goodbye to $30
What good is any Registry Boosts or Tweaks ?
My computer is old and has loads of rubbish I no longer need, while I can uninstall some programs using CCleaner I can still find files referring to them, case in point my old dead printer Espon left behind some 40 odd files after uninstalling and rebooting computer
I am sure there are many things I cant find myself that need to go, but how, what, where do I look?
Thanks in advance

I've never had a problem caused by CCleaner's registry cleaner, and I'm glad it prompts for a backup before cleaning. I always take a look at the entries suggested for removal before cleaning.
For uninstalling applications, I always use Revo Uninstaller Free. It will initiate the program's uninstall wizard and then scan the system for leftover files, folders, and registry entries. Of course, you have the option to ignore it's recommendations. The free version won't scan for leftover files, filders, or registry entries if the program was installed earlier, but the Professional version will.

I no longer recommend RegCleaners of any kind. The risk is too great for a minimal performance enhancement.
