Yea..cleaning the registry is not for novice. If you don't know what the entries are for you can run into problems deleting them. I suggest leaving it alone or post it here if you need explanation.

If you just want a cleaner for temp files, browser history, etc. you can still use CCleaner. The registry cleaner and general cleaner are separate. Only the "Issues" scanner does anything with the registry. If you just stick with the "Cleaner" scanner, you can take care of all of those garbage files without touching your registry.
