    Even wisest advice NOT to use any registry cleaners as they do more harm than any good!

    I've been using it for almost 4 years - it never made any mistake i.e. only and only deleted .tmp files on XP Pro SP3 32-bit, 7 Pro SP1 64-bit and now the current one - I believe this depends on how is the setup

Disk Cleanup Not Deleting Files in Performance & Maintenance
I recently ran a Disk Cleanup as part of my regular maintenance on my new computer. It had over 2.18GB of files to cleanup. That seemed a little high considering I run it every week to 2 weeks.
