Next month, I will be getting an Asus K52Jr-X5 as a birthday and graduation present (I'm graduating high school.) The computer will be running the 64-bit version of Windows 7 Home Premium.
I know that no registry cleaner is 100% safe, and I don't want to use one on my brand new computer if there is a risk of me damaging it. On the other hand, I don't want my computer to become too slow.
My question is: How effective is a registry cleaner and a registry defragmenter in speeding up a computer? I was hoping maybe people could share their experiences with those kinds of programs or maybe some facts.
