CCleaner is pretty safe, but if you're concerned, just create a system restore point before hand.

Default RegScrub

I use RegScrub, which I saw and was recommended on TechTV. I've been using it for about a year now and never had a problem. It works well and has a lot of cool options and tweaks. If you're interested, it's a freeware software and you can download it at: http://www.downseek.com/download/17821.asp

If you're worried you could use a utility called ERUNT. It's a quick and easy way to make a backup of your registry. There's other ways too, but this one is simple and free.

You can download it
