I was wondering if someone can tell me which is the best free registry software which corrects errors and cleans up your registry?

I'm not an expert but the experts here don't recommend any registry cleaners and their advice is to stay out of the registry because you are more likely to mess up your computer than help it. They also say that this notion that cleaning the registry will improve your computer's performance is a myth. If you're having problems, there's something else going on and messing around with the registry isn't going to help.

That about sums it up.
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

I wouldn't use a registry cleaner. Once (very stupid of me lol) i used CCleaner and in the Registry tab deleted everything that came up. When i next turn on my PC, my user account wasn't on the welcome screen! I had to go into safe mode and add a registry value to get it back.

maybe tell us what, if any, problems, you are having with the running of your computer then suggestions can be made for appropriate programs to sort it out

you do not mention which is your Windows version, antivirus program and what other protection are you running?

Reigistry cleaners, at least for the average user, can cause a lot more harm than any potential good. Avoid them like the plague.

Well, judging to all the statements made by you guys I think I'd just keep away from registry cleaners. As long as It won't affect the performance of the computer I'd just leave it as it is.

Thank you guys for the trouble. Now I feel my mind is clear of the doubts I guess.

Cheers guys!!!

I've been using CCleaner for about 2 months...I think it did improove a few things on my PC...and It hasn't destroyed anything. It seems about the same as using the diskcleaner...but somehow i feel like it's doing more.
You can set it not to delete certain things. You can also see what will be deleted before it's deleted.
I am not a computer expert...so..i could b set my self up for a problem...but I don't think so.
