...for intelligent users, they are :).  2000 is a lonnnggg way from 2014-2015.  If you doubt that, just do some research on what Windows versions and what components were available then...compare today's knowledge to yesterday's ignorance of what might be useful and what might be harmful.

Registry cleaner is not advised or recommended. But System Mechanic is not just a registry cleaner.

Just as with CCleaner, you can skip the registry cleaner portion.
