Default registry cleaners

first i ran RegScrubXp and it found like over 700 probs then....

I ran registry mechanic and it found over 1000 probs, so i registered and repaired and there seems to be no more probs.

i then ran RegScrubXP again and it only found a little over 150, so i was at least happy to see that. now i don't know if i should let regscrub fix all probs found....little confusing to know what to fix or not. Should I let it fix all? How dependable is RegScrub? Anyone know?

btw, Fix-it utilities cost a small arm and leg, well at least a finger, so I was not able to try it.

I was going to post this in Marvel's Registry Cleaners???? thread but decided that would be hijacking it

I've been using System Suite for a couple years now and swear by it, although I did try Registry Healer for a while and found that impressive
