PhantomX: Could you explain what you would like to do with said tools?

If you mean tools to let you edit the registry I use simple regedit (Start->cmd->"regedit"), and for monitoring registry changes done during a procedure I use a program called InstallRite.

Regseeker. You can't beat a decent bit of freeware. Theres more too it than just being able to clean the registry, there are also quite a few other options/tweaks.

I use CCleaner, but I heard from some experts (Chris Pirillo, Paul Thurrott) that registry cleaning is really dangerous to mess with and people shouldn't use software to clean it at all.

Lol. There is no real danger, providing you don't get some dodgy software to clean the registry with.

"Experts" 8-)

I think it's just paranoia of destroying the registry.

Precisely ;)

Registry cleaners tend not to go towards the critical registry entries though, they tend to stay at looking for references to missing DLLs and unused file extensions.

There is some malware removal software out there that just gives you lists of things and let's you choose what to remove (HiJackThis, LSP-Fix, etc.) that modify the registry. If users pick the wrong thing they can screw all sorts of crap up, the result of which usually ends up having to be reinstalling Windows.
