Yes. Generally speaking, CCleaner is safe to use.

 

Note though that it is probably best to avoid "cleaning the registry" with it, or any other program though ... unless you are extremely familiar with doing so.

This is very true. I found that CCleaners registry cleaner is not safe to use, but it is excellent for all your other files. When I used the registry cleaner, it broke my computer. All I had to do is a system restore but I'll never trust it to clean my registry again.

Even though I have used Auslogics and Wise registry cleaners after having earlier made the routine backups, the previous posters are correct!  I add:  like a surgeon, have an exact purpose, goal set, action plan, for operations -- of any registry cleaner/editor.
