    Thank but no thanks,
    I used that F-secure cleaner and it leaves a lot of registry entries.
    And it is not really effective
    As a result I couldn't install Eset NOD32 (I had to manually edit registry entris left by this so called cleaner)

    so use at your own risk

    By the way: welcome aboard 212eta

    @leofelix for headup.
    I usually test new products on my testing machine. I may give a shot for this one.
    The same thing with other cleaners. CCleaner messes Windows 7 Registry too.

    The current version of CCleaner is v2.23.993 but I just tested it on Windows 7 with the same results. I also don't recall all registry items being pre-checked in the past with CCleaner. You will find that registry cleaners are not recommended by security experts on the well-known security forums. We have seen registry cleaners do much more damage than good.

    Even when people insist on using CCleaner, I recommend a full registry backup, in addition to the CCleaner backup. (OT: It doesn't appear that ERUNT has been updated to include Windows 7 yet.)
