Default Registry Cleaner

Hey,
What does a registry cleaner actually do?
Should I download/purchase one..?

A reg cleaner pulls invalid registry entries for faster loading. Adware which cleans the registry could also be considered a reg cleaner. If you use win98 or millenium you can download reg clean98 for free. It also seems to work with xp

Free Registry Mechanic from Download.com works perfectly on mine; been using it for ages to get rid of Keys for Uninstalled Programs I'd prefer them not to know I've installed so I can get new Trials. Sometimes it works, sometimes not.
