I'm sure its trustable, but I agree with Mave that it doesn't look legit.

Besides, I Don't need one of these :P

I tryed it out, There's no spyware or malware.

It's not very useful though.

There are enough programms like this. This is just another one. And cleaning up the registry DOESN'T improve the performance. Its a myth.
The programm only clears the harddrive, so you have more free space available.

But thanks anyways for sharing.

Not really. The registry consists of different files (Hives). Since XP it only load the hives, which are really needed. So a big registry with much junk doesn't need more ram and doesn't decrease the performance. The junk in the registry disregarded by Windows. Only writing to the registry takes more time with a big registry.
Some people already started benchmarks about this, and they couldn't state any speed improvements.
You only surmise them.
