I have an Acer laptop that is running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit and it is about four years old. Over time, it has become slower and slower. I have seen references on these forums several times to software called Ccleaner. I looked it up online and saw that the company who distributes and sells it saying that it is a great program, that it has won many awards and endorsements, and that it really can speed up a system by eliminating junk programs and "cleaning out the registry". I was leaning toward trying it until I read the "registry" part. I've always heard it said that programs that modify the registry should be avoided because they can cause more harm than good and can even cause a system to crash or be unstable. For those who have used it or investigated it, would you recommend that I try to download and run Ccleaner on my laptop?
Thanks in advance.
