I already know how to schedule CCleaner application cleaner to run automatically and have done so in my system. But can anybody really help with a way to schedule CCleaner's registry cleaner to run automatically? Any help would be thanked a lot. :busy:

I wouldn't bother if I was you.

Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons:
  • Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.

    The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable. For a more detailed explanation, read Understanding The Registry.
  • Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad entry". One cleaner may find entries on your system that will not cause problems when removed, another may not find the same entries, and still another may want to remove entries required for a program to work.
  • Not all registry cleaners create a backup of the registry before making changes. If the changes prevent the system from booting up, then there is no backup available to restore it in order to regain functionality. A backup of the registry is essential BEFORE making any changes to the registry.
  • Improperly removing registry entries can hamper malware disinfection and make the removal process more difficult if your computer becomes infected. For example, removing malware related registry entries before the infection is properly identified can contribute to system instability and even make the malware undetectable to removal tools.
  • The usefulness of cleaning the registry is highly overrated and can be dangerous. In most cases, using a cleaner to remove obsolete, invalid, and erroneous entries does not affect system performance but it can result in "unpredictable results".

Unless you have a particular problem that requires a registry edit to correct it, I would suggest you leave the registry alone. Using registry cleaning tools unnecessarily or incorrectly could lead to disastrous effects on your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again. For routine use, the benefits to your computer are negligible while the potential risks are great.

Heck, I already know all that. All I want to know is how to schedule it, not its risks and all other blunder. I've been using it for years and haven't encountered any problems whatsoever <_< . So just tell me how to schedule it, please? Anyone? :)

Piriform (the CCleaner company) has their own forum, if you are that desperate to schedule registry scans -
There may be someone there who will give you further ideas. Just go to the D/load site and there is a link...........
Just Google it -

As far as I know there is no way to schedule CCleaner to run the registry cleaner function automatically.

I agree with Budapest, so that is the only reason I left the link to the forum site.
You can try there, but I have not found anything on their site that meets your request.
I do not believe your idea will work from any known application that currently exists (unless you can create a program yourself).
