To clean or not to clean my registry

by on March 29, 2010

Q: There are so many ads out there about cleaning your registry that I am wondering if I should clean my registry and if I should how would I go about doing it?

A: We at Askageek.com suggest you do not clean your registry unless you are having a specific problem that cleaning your registry will solve. For those of you who are wondering what problems might be fixed by cleaning your registry the answer is very few and most people will never run into them.

Most people who come to Askageek.com and have registry questions are those people who either have seen the ads that say they have to clean their registry or are people who have fallen for the ads and have actually cleaned their registry and now have issues. If you need to clean your registry we suggest you read our answer on how to Safely using registry cleaners but again we suggest most people stay as far away as possible.
