    I still use iolo System Mechanic v3.x which creates Undo REG files. Some report that Easy Cleaner is also good.

    What do you think about MightyMax? Is this serious?

    Not used that product, but in general make sure that the program has some Undo methods or restore point type operation. In many cases I've seen, registry cleaners cause cosmetic & functional problems which the user notice after few days.

    IMHO, backup before cleaning the registry, and test the operation of the system after cleaning.
