Read an in-depth analysis in our professional review for ARO 2012 (formerly Advanced Registry Optimizer)
ARO is a software that can improve the performance level of your computer by cleaning and optimizing your Windows registry keys.
The tool has a user-friendly interface in which you can view the status regarding the last scan, optimization and registry backup.
So, you can initialize the scanning process by simply clicking a button. ARO will go through several areas of the registry, including file types, application paths, ActiveX, COM, fonts and the help sections.
In addition, ARO can look for junk data (e.g. memory dumps, recent documents list, Recycle Bin, invalid shortcuts).
Once the scan finishes, you can view the total number of errors in each category and a detailed list of the broken or invalid registry keys.
An optimization task is easily set by clicking a button. When it is completed, your computer will automatically restart, so make sure to save your data beforehand.
Furthermore, ARO allows you to perform a full registry backup and to schedule an auto cleaning job, and automatically creates a system restore point before fixing any registry errors. Plus, you can manage registry items by creating an exclusion list, restore settings to their default values, and more.
The program requires a low amount of system resources, includes a step-by-step tutorial and quickly finishes a scanning, repairing and optimization task. No errors have popped up during our tests. We highly recommend ARO to any user level.
