    Is the registry size so critical for you?
    Or do you have some other reason to waste your time for such development?
    And why don't you want to use some already existent tools for cleaning registry?

    I would leave the registry as it is, or at best use an existing tool.

    There are tools doing this, see here for more details: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/arc....mspx?mfr=true

    But unless something is broken I would refrain myself from tampering the registry.
