A CDE Definition
A utility program that scans the Windows Registry and looks for outdated and invalid entries. Applications often create Registry entries for temporary data and pointers to other files, but never delete them. In addition, if folders are manually deleted by the user, Registry entries may point to files that do not exist. A Registry cleaner can be part of a package of system utilities or a stand-alone program.
