I like using CCleaner for this.

I've also used CCleaner for years now.

I have used CCleaner in the past. It did not appear to do as good a job as Registry Life.
Also our Grid have blocked access to the downloads/updates: Keeping up with developments is a bit of a pain for us now.

What sort of performance increases are you seeing?
Personally, I don't rate these kinds of registry 'clean up' tools but I'm willing to keep an open mind if someone can convince me.
Out of interest, do you back up the registry before running these tools?

Makes at least 2 of us, aside from ccleaner where I have seen the keys its removed - most of which make sense to me ie file types and pieces in the registry that have been left over from .Net framework and if you have removed quicktime or adobe reader or any software its left other bits in the registry and Ive used ccleaners registry cleaner repeatedly until it cant find anything and then try and re install problematic software and most of the time it fixes it
