 From my experience, this is a totally hit and miss approach. Sometimes 
it cleans up all the bad stuff and leaves all your applications still 
working. Sometimes it leaves all the bad stuff and causes your 
applications to stop working. Try it if you're going to start again 
anyway as, if it does work, it's a LOT faster than reformatting and 
reinstalling everything.

My suggestion, moving forwards, is to store an image of your drive on a 
DVD when you've got your computer in a state you like. Being able to 
restore your computer to a clean working condition in 5 minutes is 
awesome :)
