Default Where is Best Registry Cleaner???????

I have been in search of the best registry cleaner. I saw many freebies offered and recommended. I wanna make sure the program i'm using is reliable or not. Can you tell me the best program?

Registry Mechanic is a good one, and tweak now as mentioned is pretty good. but personally i use like 4-5 tweak programs as each one finds something different. i dont really know of one that corrects everything.

Registry Issue Cleaning:
CCleaner uses an advanced Registry to check for problems and inconsistencies in your registry. It can check the following:

File Extensions
ActiveX Controls
ClassIDs
ProgIDs
Uninstallers
Shared DLLs
Fonts
Help File references
Application Paths
Icons
Invalid Shortcuts and more...


What is it then? CCleaners website says Registry Issue Cleaning
