more info needed

Would you mind telling us what operating system you want to tweak?

Also, are you having any problems? If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Messing with the registry can render your computer totally useless.

I agree with Thumbs here

If it isn't broken, leave it be.

Something pretty neutral that you can do is find a registry cleaner that you like and run it periodically to clean up after uninstalls and the like. I use CCleaner- light weight and free (http://ccleaner.com) but there are others out there.

The one thing to remember about this particular tool is that you have to run it recursively in order to get all the bits. Identifying and eliminating a fragment is likely to reveal a new fragment. I just run it until it doesn't find anything new. And as with anything to do with the registry, make sure that you make a back up first. CCleaner will prompt you to do this.

It's good practice to back-up the registry before making any changes.
