Hello,

Would somebody please advise me on whether CCleaner and RegScrubXP perform the same functions? If so, which one is more reliable? Or could I install them both and compliment each other in the cleaning of the registry?

I am using WindowsXP Home Edition SP2.

Thanks and regards.

Personally I do not believe in registry cleaners. They sometimes clean a little too much and you run into problems. If you insist on using one, CCleaner as a product has a good reputation

I echo the Grinler's comment here. Why do you think you need to use a registery cleaner?

May I suggest you peruse the tutorials here at BC starting with this item here and move on through some of the others as apply to you....

If you continue to have problems with your system, you might need to look deeper....

KoanYorel, thanks a lot too for your comment. I have read the tutorials which you recommended and I could say that the anti-virus and anti-spyware programs mentioned their are already installed in my computer and that I am observing the stated precautionary measures to avoid infection from virus, adware, ect.
