Default Best registry cleaner?

What are some good registry cleaners that are fairly easy/safe to use?
I use ccleaner sometimes, and my gf uses Registry Mechanic all the time.
Are there any others I should try?

Comodo has one I believe and Raxco has recently introduced PerfectSpeed which combines the Autopilot PerfectDisk defrag with a registry cleaner, history remover and maybe a few other things.

Though I only really trust these programs on x86 systems. I don't think many fully support x64 systems so they can cause issues. I know Comodo claims they do and so does Raxco thus why I mentioned them.

I found that the best registry cleaner was the one included with FixIt Utilities (not free and the rest of the programs are kind of uneeded, I also haven't used it in years). Beyond that I just use ccleaner now.

CCleaner is great, there are better for registry cleanup mind you. I've used Registry Mechanic, it's great... but I don't change enough stuff around to really bother "cleaning" my registry. I tend to do it manually. Mind you, it takes a lot more work... LOL

Definitely CCleaner for me. It cleans up the registry and generally removes 1-2GB of crap everything I run it. I can also get rid of startup programs with it...

Best tool IMO
