I have been using CCleaner to automatically clean temp and junk files each time I boot up for years. It is the only app that does this automatically. If you already have CCleaner, you can set that up. BC does not recommend registry cleaners. They just aren't necessary and can cause more harm than good.

Be very careful in using anything that cleans the registry. It can break stuff, if you do not watch what you are doing, when checking boxes. Always backup the registry on a USB Pendrive, in case things go bad. I would also do a Clone of the drive with Clonezilla. You can create the bootable Pendrive, by downloading Tuxboot at http://www.tuxboot.org, then click on the "update" radio button, which should give you the i486 version. You will need either a DVD or network drive that you can save the image of your hard drive on.
Always the best thing, before attempting any type of deep cleaning. I do not even bother anymore with deep cleaning of the registry, due to it tends to break more then fix. Only things I do look for, when I clean the registry, is stuff like Norton, Symantic, Wild Tangent, and that is about it.
