Hi All,

Does any body knows how to defragment windows registry?

We googled and found several free tools doing the same.But no tool is having open source. One tool is there - 'UltraDefrag' which is open source tool for file defragmentation.

Please provide help in searching open source/ sample code to defragment windows registry...or any windows API functions or libraries for doing the same.

What's the point in trying to defragment the registry? Such a thing might have actually provided some sort of benefit, may be in the Windows 95 era.

But it's absolutely pointless, and will not result even a very marginal performance or any other benefit with a modern operating system (by modern, I mean even Windows 2000 or above). It could positively be dangerous to "clean up" the registry as you have ABSOLUTELY no idea of what keys are being used by which applications!

Don't do this.

This phrase is incompatible with the rest of your question, which indicates you want to find existing code that does this and copy it. That is NOT software development.
