I personally don't recommend any registry cleaner.  I have had customers nuke all kinds of important files out of their registries with all the leading brands of cleaners.  The best way to optimize Vista is to install SP1 and all the updates, max out your ram and keep your spyware/viruses down with regular scans.  

Hope that helps

If you are looking for something free I have used this in the past:  http://www.auslogics.com/disk-defrag

If you want something a bit more robust and enterprise friendly with some network admin capabilities i like the Diskeeper products.
