FileCure is a software application whose purpose is to help you scan your computer to find out the file formats supported by your system. Plus, the utility suggests programs that can help you open files.
You are welcomed by a multi-tabbed interface that offers you quick access to several important features for managing the file formats, such as Scan, Manage, Monitor, Ignore, History, and Schedule.
FileCure is able to scan your registry for unknown email attachments, archived and compressed files, audio items, documents, Internet downloads, graphic files, videos, or other file formats. Additionally, you can look for a user-defined extension.
Tests revealed that the program carries out the scanning process very quickly but this pretty much depends on how many files are stored on your disk. It doesn’t eat up a lot of CPU and memory, so the overall performance of the computer is not affected.
At the end of the scanning mode, you are offered details about the number of detected problems regarding your file extensions. You can fix registry issues, ignore the selected problem, check out the utilities that are required for running certain programs, as well as view a list with valid extensions.
Monitoring options and scheduled tasks
FileCure lets you view a list with the recent changes applied to file associations, check out the Ignore list which includes all previously detected extensions, as well as open the History panel that reveals the file extension repairs and associations performed by the tool.
Other notable characteristics worth being mentioned allow you to control what application is associated with each file type, and schedule the scanning process at a user-defined time and date.
When it comes to configuration settings, you can embed the “Scan With FileCure” option to the context menu, run the tool at Windows startup, and use FileCure to handle unknown extensions and “Open With” requests.
All in all, FileCure offers a simple software solution when it comes to helping you scan your registry for letting you know which extensions are currently supported.
