Free Windows Registry Cleaner
Windows isn’t all just a bunch of stylish designs and cool animations when you click specific stuff. Behind it all are system registries, a set of well-organized rules that make everything work. Most applications you install add their own set of rules, that can remain there after uninstalling, and affect your computer. Luckily, you can get rid of them with Free Windows Registry Cleaner.
Simple visuals make it easy to use
As soon as the installer tells you it’s done, you’re free to check out the set of features. The application holds them all in a classic window style, with a few custom visual elements that aren’t so bright, but neither disappointing. A few buttons are found in the upper toolbar to easily navigate through major areas.
Unlike most of its kind, the application won’t start off to scan the system, and awaits your input. Scan options are the first feature you get to meet, with the list letting you select Control Scan, User Scan, System Software, Fonts, Help Files, Shared Libraries, Startup Entries, Installation Strings, Virtual Devices, History and Start Menu, Deep System Scan, as well as MRU Lists.
Real-time feedback and detailed report
Before pressing the start button to initiate the process, you can pay a visit to the options menu in order to decide if you want to have a system restore point automatically created, just in case something goes way out of hand. In addition, you can enable logging to analyze results later on.
Once the process is put in motion, your entire system is put under the scope in order to find broken or useless registries. Feedback is offered in real time, with detailed reports that include hive, name, description, sub keys, and more. When it’s done, you can go through a list of identified items and decide which you want to remove.
None are selected by default in order to prevent accidental removal of important ones. On the other hand, there’s a simple button to press that selects them all. The only thing left to do is click on Remove Selected to finish the cleaning operation.
To sum it up
All things considered, we come to the conclusion that Free Windows Registry Cleaner is a straightforward application that does exactly what it states it can. Although it would have been nice to see a built-in scheduler, registries don’t really get broken that often. The overall process takes little time from start to end, making this application worth a try.
