Does Regclean work on Windows 2000?

A. Regclean is a Microsoft utility which is used to tidy up the registry of a computer. When you install and remove programs sometimes registry keys/associations get left behind which just waste space and Regclean attempts to identify these and remove from the system.

Regclean.exe can be downloaded from

Version 4.1a of Regclean build 7364.1 is compatible with Windows 2000. There are some issues running it on NT 4 Service pack 4 and below but if using Windows 2000 none of these apply and all should work as documented.
