I've heard so much about registry cleaners and the necessity for one when a computer is over six months old, and so I tried Registry First Aid, which has received many awards. However, after downloading and requesting a first scan my computer went to the blue screen and reported a serious error. I tried again, hoping it was just a glitch and the same thing happened, so I uninstalled the software and now am back to normal. Should I forget the idea of a Registry Cleaner or should I try another?
Hi, I use registry Mechanic which I think I got free from another magazine. This certainly cleans and repairs a lot of rubbish and generally speeds up things. I also use Ccleaner after every session, and it is surprising how much it can clear from temporary files. regards Carper
I have just installed easy cleaner to give it a try. I scanned the registry with reg scrub- zero results reg seeker- 2 found easy cleaner- 46 found along with a multitude of duplicate files. I,m not sure if it is safe to delete any of the registry or the supposed duplicates. Any long term users of easy cleaner with advice.
Hi, my personal choice is RegScrub, same as VoG. I use it regularly, along with AVG and Ad-Aware, with Kerio firewall completeing my security setup. Had only two nasties in over six years - and those were in the very early days.
I've used RegCleaner for years and I've never had to use its backup facility yet. It's free and can be downloaded from several freebie sites but there are some others which are not so good (or safe!) with very similar names. I've got the latest Fix-It Utilities which has a very thorough registry cleaner and editor in it but it's slower and costs.
