RegClean Pro can be obtained here:

As many people see it as a problem as see it as a valid tool.

Modern 64-bit system (Vista forward) do not need and do not benefit from a registry cleaner. A vigorous registry cleaner can wreck your system. I have tried a few (trial versions) on disposable virtual systems and the results were poor and sometimes resulted in broken systems.

I do not recommend them, and based on a quick Google study, I specifically do not recommend this one.

As Thinkpads_User says, registry cleaners are not needed. They do not improve computers performance. Microsoft also advises thusly.

If you will use one -- nevertheless, use CCleaner (recommended) and Wise Registry Cleaner.

Thank you both.
I did uninstall RegCleanPro and opted for CCleaner instead.
Upon both of your comments, I will not use it as registry defrag but file cleaner ... with precaution.
Thanks again, regards et good night.
