    Default Seeking Advise: Free Registry Cleaner

    Hello,
    Looking for some advise, I would like to try one of those free Registry Cleaning Utilities like TweakNow Regcleaner Standard or Eusing Free Registry Cleaner among others. I know nothing about Registries or stuff like that, so I want an utiliy that's easy and safe to use so that it won't delete stuff it isn't supposed to (looking for info on this utilies, I read that they might delete stuff your computer needs) I use Windows 98SE, thanks for the help.

    Make sure you export the registry file before messing up with the registry.

    I like to spend hours analyzing my registry and cleaning it up manually.
    It's like chess.

    Registry cleaners will generally fuck up your PC unless you know what you are doing. =\

    Seems like it, at least that's what I have read while searching for info on those utilities, that's why I decided to try asking for advice here, before trying anything
