it works quite well here
it cleans registry entries for:
missing shared dlls
unused file extensions
activex and class issues
application paths
help files
obsolete software
run at startip
start menu ordering
mui chache

the only stuff it removed but shouldnt is the font stuff or sth but thats recreated once i run wine again (and might as well be disabled in the program)
so far it did not break any functionality here and did a great job keeping my registry clean after removing software when uninstaller failed
