I've heard that Max Registry Cleaner is good, but I don't personally use registry cleaners. I've seen too many PCs that have been ruined by such software, and Windows XP is fairly good at managing the registry, unlike Windows 95, 98 and Me.

XP doesn't remove any unused registries as such, it's just that it is generally better at managing the registry in that it leaves fewer unnecessary registry entries, and cleans up after uninstalls much better than previous operating systems. It is also affected much less by a 'bloated' registry, in that the PC won't slow down as much as previous operating systems did.
