Yes, but a lot of that can be eliminated with the use of programs like Total Uninstall, which monitors the installation of programs.
you say you have had no reason to use reg cleaners,but aren't bits of programs left in the registry after uninstalling? (even with add/remove programs)
I haven't seen any definitive proof that cleaning the Registry improves performance, and in my opinion the risks far outweigh the benifits.
How else are we to remove these ? (i know you can manually edit the reg, but i choose not to do this as i don't know what i'm doing)

Besides, if I'm not mistaken (If I'm wrong, someone correct this), the Registry is only 20 - 30 KB in size.
I don't think any reduction in size, due to a cleaning, would be that noticeable performance wise.
To sum it all up, I don't think Registry cleaners are worth the risk of turning your computer into a doorstop.

If you don't have a specific problem with the Registry, it's best you stay out of it, as improper changes to the registry could render your computer inoperable.
