FREEWAREFILES EDITOR'S REVIEW
If you have installed and uninstalled several programs on your computer, the computers Windows registry most likely contains errors that affect its performance. The more you use your computer, the more junk its registry will accumulate. Some common errors are missing referenced application paths, unused registration entries, missing references to shared DLLs, startup, Start menu and sub-system components. However, it is not recommended that you tamper with Windows registry unless you are sure of what you are doing. This is why you need a suitable program that will help you fix registry errors without creating further damage. Wise Registry Cleaner is such a program.
This free registry cleaner provides information about entries you can remove and those you should not interfere with. It also creates a backup of original entries before deleting anything.

Using Wise Registry Cleaner
The user interface allowed us to access various functions easily. The left of the program window displayed all registry areas we wanted to scan in a tree view while the right part of the window displayed results of scans. At the bottom of the application window were details of selected list entries and number of problems found.
Many registry cleaners only offer the option to clean Windows registry without differentiating between entries. However, Wise Registry Cleaner labeled different entries as either unsafe or safe to fix. In addition, we liked the back-up feature that we could use to restore our system in case we noticed any problems. The first time we launched the program, it created a restore point that saved all configurations in Windows before making any changes.
The software detected more errors than other similar programs. Although the program did not remove as many errors on the first run, it removed all of them the second time we ran it.
The program gave us the option to exclude some areas during the scanning process. We could also choose the areas we wanted to fix or let the program choose them automatically.
- Easy to use
- Ability to restore former state
- Pausing and resuming scanning
- Showing safe and unsafe areas to fix
- Inability to fix all registry errors at first run

Pros: - Registry cleaning is efficient and, above all, secure (no fantasies in removing whatever vital keys). - System Tuneup module's components, interesting
Cons: System Tuneup, if well equipped, is not IMO very intuitive and rather cumbersome when a user wishes to restore only one modified value. Moreover no indication of the corresponding Registry's modifications.
Other Thoughts: I've discovered a txt file that fortunately indicates the Registry values handled by the System Tuneup :
This way the user knows where he's putting his feet...
