I am very cautious about letting third party software clean my registry. If your software totally safe when it is touching my registry for cleaning? I have cleaned my registry in the past with software like CCleaner and it really caused problems because I am an idiot and cleaned too much haha.

The SecureAnywhere firewall monitors data traffic traveling out of your computer ports and looks for untrusted processes that try to connect to your internet. Webroot's firewall works in tandem with the Windows firewall which monitors data traffic coming into your computer. When both firewalls are running you have complete inbound and outbound protection!
As far as the registry cleaner goes, we do not have one, so have no fear of us removing or cleaning necessary files from it.
I understand your confusion because many registry cleaner programs also include the functionality to clear Windows registry streams. Our product is not intended to "clean the registry" and we shy away from removing unused registry entries.
What you are referring to is clearing the registry stream. This is more like refreshing the history of activity that Windows stores in the registry, such as when you open, close, or move Explorer windows. It also clears the history of recent changes you made to the Windows registry, but does not delete the registry changes themselves! :D
Let me know if that clears things up.
