That being said, I and many others do recommend staying away from the Registry component simply because registry cleaning typically yields no performance gains but risks problems with a user's system.
I run CCleaner at least once a day whenever I finish browsing the web to clear out the temp files that accumulate and I've done so on every system I've owned for many years now and have never had any issues because of it.

I have been using CCleaner for about 3 years now and never experienced any issues. As for the registry cleaner, some people will say its a bad idea and some people will
say its good. I have also been using CCleaner to clean the registry and never experienced any ill effects, nor did I gain any performance for cleaning the registry.
The registry cleaner just deletes entries that are obselete or no longer have a purpose so to speak, for example, leftovers from uninstalling a program. So in a way it can
keep the registry more free of junk that no longer has a purpose for anything.
I always recommend CCleaner and installed it on all my friends and families computers and ran both the Cleaner and Registry Cleaner and I have never seen any issues or
ill effects what so ever.
I run CCleaner once a day Daily on my Laptop, sometimes more, just whenever I feel like too, and I am still here.
Also, CCleaner is not spyware or adware, I never got infected from downloading and installing it from there official website www.piriform.com
This is all from my personal experience and my personal opinion. Your computer is going to be just fine Quikfix if you run CCleaner 7-8 times a day.
I hope this helps.

@exile360: If a mBAM moderator uses it personally, I have no problem in keeping it downloaded
@Seagull: Thanks, I'm kinda paranoid and want to make sure before I download anything, especially if it has anything to do with the registry. Also, what I meant was 7-8 times in a week (once a day), but if you said that 7-8 times a day is fine, then once a day is like...nothing!
@noknojon: Yes, I will check it out. Thanks for the link. You have a good day

i will not go into the pros/cons or effectiveness of the registry cleaning portion .
as for it being "malware" ... that is absolutely ludicrous .
however ... there are "look/sound-alikes" out there ... beware !
(a google search of "registry cleaners" will illustrate what i am referencing)
i always download the latest version directly from piriform .
on an additional note and possibly where the "malware" claim may originate partially ...
the last few versions have included the option to install some "google toolbar" .
be cautious and do not install it .
toolbars = bad ... end of story .
