See, back in the day win2K had a neat little menu right on the "My Computer" desktop link.
It was a lever with which the administrator of that system could give some more memory space to the registry. That was super cool because in all winNT based systems the registry hives keep expanding no matter what.
Sure, reg cleaners remove dead entries but still that is not ennuf. This "hives" thing keeps expanding, slowing down thus the system.
Win7 dont have this issue to fight with anymore. The 7 kernel dont load the dead or invalid entries into memory, so, in real terms you dont need a reg cleaner with that system.
What really slows down a win7 system is ... too many programs starting along with windows like instant messengers, internet clocks, lame browser addons, veedeeo overlay recorders, antivirus programs etcetera.
Other sneaky programs mite politely ask you if you want their purty lill code to be executed while all of your profiles on your box are logged on. These guys use a "service" to achieve that.
A service has the ability to wake up a program even if it is not registered at the startup folder.
There are a few other low level sections like winlogon or drivers to tweak or disable in order to gain some speed back but youll need to be 100% on your game.
Its purty easy to screw up your system if you really dont know what youre doin so you mite wanna use somethin like the PC Decrapifier
