The problem with registry cleaners is you have to make a self-determination on your own and investigate what they want to remove. It's pretty much impossible to say if something is safe to delete for instance; what you've posted has allot of these: "Useless empty key" However that isn't always the case, and removing something that an installed application needs can very easily break it. You need to open RegEdit and look at those keys to see if they contain anything. If you're unsure about removing keys ignore them either on your own or tell the registry cleaner to ignore them, ignoring them won't cause any harm.

 

However, if an application has been removed that's another story and the entries are "generally safe to remove" if you know what you're doing. Also if the uninstall program was sloppy and didn't remove them (many are), this is often common if the application created keys after it was launched and unfortunately the uninstaller wouldn't know about them if it doesn't include a routine to completely remove all registry data written by the application.

 

Whatever you choose create a backup with RegSupreme, and as an extra precaution create a restore point with System Restore which backs up the registry if you're running WinXP.
