Everybody knows that, over time, our registries get full of crap that sneaks in. everybody also knows that most of us don’t know what most of the crap is and wither it’s safe to dump it or not.
Question: is there some kind of service, app, site, program……whatever, which will help us to identify all the crap and tell use what is safe to dump without causing our operating systems to malfunction?

Identify and dump junk?

Registry Mechanic has a database of what it considers to be safe and not safe to remove from the registry. Ideally we suggest that you allow Registry Mechanic to make this decision for you as that is its primary function (i.e. to clean the registry for you).
However, as it is possible that Registry Mechanic (or any registry cleaning program) can remove a registry item that is needed by another program or application to function correctly, there is a build-in feature to reverse these changes.
Restore Registry Backups:
To reverse any changes Registry Mechanic has made to the registry, please follow the steps shown below.
1. Open Registry Mechanic
2. Select "Recovery"
3. Check the check boxes that coincide with the registry clean you performed
4. Select "Restore" and follow the prompts
5. Restart the computer
