From your first post:

So you've never run CrapCleaner and yet you come on here telling us
that it will hose your system. You are full of shit.

Nope, not full of shit, just because I haven't done something, doesn't mean I don't know its bad to do. I've never dropped a match into a can of gasoline. However, I know it will blow up, because of other experiences that tell me its a bad thing. Just do a web search on "registry cleaners" and see how many you find that screw up systems to the point a reinstall is the only thing that will fix it.

I don't need to trawl the net for stories that can't be verified.
Don't try to widen the argument by including all registry cleaners.
This is about CrapCleaner or CCleaner.
I have been using CCleaner for years, starting when it was called CrapCleaner.
I've used it on XP, Vista and Windows 7. Not only me and my several
machines but I've installed it on 8 or 9 other machines of friends and
family as well and told them to use it regularly.
I have never had any problems with running any portion of CCleaner.
Instead of repeating the registry cleaner dogma, produce the evidence
to back up your claims about CCleaner, a program you have never used.
