Bleeping Computer does not recommend the use of Registry cleaners.
Unless you have a specific problem you're trying to correct, it's best to stay out of the Registry.
Registry cleaners mark entries as bad, depending on what the software creator thinks, is bad.
That's why no 2 cleaners will find all of the same, "problems".
Registry "problems" actually have very little effect, on the overall performance of the operating system.

Please see this article:
XP Fixes Myth #1: Registry Cleaners

If you're not experienced with working in the registry, DO NOT ATTEMPT IT.
Improper changes to the registry could render your computer inoperable.
If you do insist on using Registry cleaners, ALWAYS backup the registry BEFORE making any changes.
Instructions, on how to do that, can be found here:
How to back up, edit, and restore the registry
(I highly recommend, you make a copy of this article.)

.... which cannot effect the function of our system?

There are no guarantees, when it comes to the safety of using, these types of programs.
What might work on one persons computer, causing no problems, might totally wreck, yours.
Personally, I don't think the risk, is worth the questionable benefits.

Yes there is software you can use as tg1911 suggests. Plus this shouldn't be in the section, perhaps tg1911 could move it for you. :thumbsup:
