And, like many free registry utilities, it will also scan your system for other performance problems, find them, and offer to install shareware to fix them. However, unlike many "free utilities" that do nothing but find problems for other software to fix, Simnet Registry Defrag actually defragments the registry. It's easy to use, too, and seems to do a good job.
Registry Defrag has a stylish interface with a minimum of … Read more

Registry cleaners can keep your PC humming like new, if used with caution. Used carelessly, they can do more than make existing problems worse; they can create new ones, ranging in severity from nuisance to total catastrophe.

Its Registry defragmentation and cleanup utilities are designed to be safe and reliable.
Registry cleaners tend to have simple, colorful interfaces that pare the user experience down to the essentials. … Read more
