Is there a tool you guys would recommend I install on a new 64-bit win7 system that would allow me to keep my registry clean, keep my drivers up-to-date etc?

You chose the best answer about 10 minutes after posting the question. Does that imply you don't want any more responses or options? –  Chris_K Nov 29 '09 at 21:58
    
No, actually I guess that's some bad form - I'm still interested in more feedback and options. Sorry, kind of new to asking questions here. –  Myk Nov 29 '09 at 22:04

An all-in-one? I don't know of a good one. If you don't mind 2 separate tools, I'd recommend CCleaner and DriverMax.

I accepted this as the best answer ten mins after posting my question but comments above made me realize I should leave it open a little bit yet. Sorry for any confusion. –  Myk Nov 29 '09 at 22:05
    
+1 on CCleaner :) –  user155695 Nov 30 '09 at 9:45

jv16 powertools - although not free, after trying it, I've never looked for anything else.

While not exactly what you're after, one of the first tools I install on my machines is Secunia PSI. It is very helpful in letting me know when I have apps with security issues and usually offers a link to the app's site to get a current/patched version.

Try Windows 7 Manager by YamicSoft. It's a good set of maintenance tools and it's trial is free for 15 days.

Before you install any programs, install Total Uninstall.

This will monitor further software installation and remove the programs completely (unlike the regular Windows uninstaller).

As for an all-round cleaning/maintenance tool for Windows 64-bit, I can recommend Advanced SystemCare Free: a one-click approach to help protect, repair, clean, and optimize your PC.
