AVG PC Analyzer vs others, can it be trusted?

    i have avg installed on a system along with ccleaner, cleanmypc, wise registry cleaner and comodo system utilities. (for testing purposes)

    the result from registry scanner on each app are:
    -pc analyzer = 1,099
    -wise registry cleaner = 21
    -ccleaner = 75
    -comodo system cleaner = 220 (in-depth)
    -cleanmypc = 81

    now my question is avg pc analyzer have found a significantly higher number of entries but can it really be trusted? wont it just make the system unbootable? are these really unnecessary entries?

    are there any reviews of the pc analyzer?
    any comments are welcome.

    I cannot comment for AVG PC Analyzer, CCleaner is likely to be the safe one thus not gave aggressive results as registry cleaners.

    Handling with registry cleaners needs a precautionary measures on it.

    Actually AVG PC Analyzer (Full version = AVG PC TuneUp) is a duplicate of Auslogics BoostSpeed, it has the same features except the name. :p
    Using a Registry Cleaner is dangerous, but it's up to you if you want to try it. Just create a backup of your files (if any) and create a restore point. I never had a problem with Auslogics BoostSpeed.

    We can say that AVG PC Analyzer is an ad for AVG PC TuneUp.

    The results found are fake they try to get you to buy AVG PC TuneUp, kind of like a scam.

    Stick to CCleaner, it is safe to use and doesn't delete things that will cause system problems.

    Thanks.:D

    I installed RegZooka and now I'm getting a config window CLMLSc.exe - No Disk. I did have a terrabyte drive attached, but disconnected it and rebooted and am still getting same config window. Could these two events be related?

    RegZooka is a known scam, uninstall it.

    Beware the company pays for fake positive reviews of their products the web is full of these fake reviews.

    Enjoy!! :D

    Registry cleaners are useless, stick with ccleaner and you'll be fine like LB said

    the only two regcleaners to be trusted , who don't dig deep into the systems registry are ccleaner and wise registry cleaner. a nice bonus to wise's registry cleaner that it automatically cleanes the enteries it conciders safe to be cleaned and it leaves the suspicious enteries for the user to clean ( these are unchecked for cleaning and pointed out with an exclamation-mark in the results.... ) the rest is to agressive and definately will screw up your system sooner or later!

    Ccleaner and Auslogics are the 2 safest, but I still wouldn't use them

    I trust Cleaners, not Analysers.

    Analysers are all talk, Cleaners take action. ;)

    CCleaner is enough. No need to add analyzers, registry cleaners, etc.

    PS. Has anyone tried System Ninja?
