I know this company means well, but in Vista and ESPECIALLY in Windows 7, registry cleaners are dangerous because they cannot possibly account for all variations of application virtualization.

Win7 like Vista, uses several advanced techniques to allow applications to do 'restricted' work with files and settings, yet not impact the 'actual' system, which is where the C:\ProgramData comes from as it is a 'piece' of this mechanism.

However, it is not this simple, as Applications have both lookup compatibility and realtime compensation techniques that won't even act out the same on two different users computers based with the same same software, just in the order of how the applications were first run.

Registry cleaners try to remove 'old' and 'invalid' references; however, if the entry's references are different, changed, rename when running, and other things that happen with Windows 7 virtualization, then a Registry Cleaner will impair the program's functionally which can the erratic crashes, or a complete failure to run properly.

Registry Cleaners are very dangerous to anyone that blindly has no understanding of the complexity of how Windows handles virtualization of software and settings.

Additionally, the 'wait' time on truly broken or 'uneeded' items in the registry is a couple of ms of time, at best even if you had 1000 bad entries in the registry, it would save the user on average less than .001 seconds on a daily basis.

The 'space' taken up by bad entries, also is no longer relevant, as they once were with XP, were the OS was trying to run effectively in 128mb of RAM at 'optimal' speed. If you have even 512mb of RAM, a few KB of space is irrelevant anymore, especially in Windows 7 where the way the registry is retained and cached in RAM is infrequent, due to the memory prioritization flags.

Anyone that runs a registry cleaner is wasting more time running it, than it will ever help them, and risking reducing the stability of applications.

Thanks for detailed explanation
