In response to [@phoe monreo] who claims that Microsoft does not support registry cleaners . . . and who comes to a program giveaway site to claim that ‘Some programs available for free on the internet might contain spyware, adware, or viruses’, and then goes on to claim that ‘we’-the-author are Microsoft.


#1, Microsoft wrote and released a registry cleaner – RegClean.exe – so there, released in support of Windows 95, and still works on all versions of Windows today, I daily use RegClean.exe v4.1.7364.1 from 1997 on all my computers, mostly Windows 7 x64 Pro, and newer Windows 10 and Windows 11, and it works just fine.

#2, Here at Shareware On Sale, NO programs have malware – please do not come to a file download site and tell people not to download files – Ashraf, who runs Shareware On Sale, and all of us users, know about checking anything we download FREE at [ VirusTotal . com ], so we know what we are getting, and we know what we are getting into.

#3, ‘we’ report here from our hands-on experience of the software under discussion, so please download it, use it – even if you only inspect it’s recommendations and decide NOT to delete any identified registry entries – and report on your experience.

Let’s do that.

Ashampoo Registry Cleaner v2 installs on as many PC as you want, and it registers with your Ashampoo username and password, and it cleans only a little, very quickly, about 60+ innocuous items for me, mostly things that are not in daily use anyway, and most probably have had no effect on the user experience, I just ran it on a few computers, rebooted, no problem, not much effect at all.

Thanks as ever, Ashraf, for letting us explore this and share.
