CCleaner also lets you clean the Windows Registry, a database which stores configuration information, hardware and software settings on your system. Every time you alter system configuration information, install software or perform other routine tasks, these changes are reflected and stored in the Windows Registry.
Over time, however, the Windows Registry accumulates outdated configuration information and settings, including traces of obsolete programs. The CCleaner Registry option lets you scan and remove such information, improving the overall function and speed of your system, as well as protecting your digital privacy and security.
TIP: A scan of the Windows Registry should be performed at least monthly, if not weekly.
NOTE: If you have any issues after cleaning your registry with any software, then it is recommended you recover your registry backup file
