    "Simply put....Unbelievable! My computer is happy again :)"

    November 4, 2006  |   By jmwren


    Does what it says! Without causing any havoc...Found over 1500 problems within my registry....unbelievable but...fixed them and now all is good :) I was hesitant at first to just let the program delete all the problem children... but then after reading the great reviews I felt like I could trust all those errors to be fixed so I just clicked repair and was all good. :):):) I am a happy camper...Of coarse it was nice to now that I could set the program to create a system restore point, just in case. (a setting you can set up to automatically create when you do any registry cleaning...)


    Wish there was a way to know exactly what the problem is and what the file is used for that is being deleted, like if it's a corrupt file what if anything do I need to do to replace it... But I think for the most part this program is only selecting files that are orphaned, so all is good. I may be wrong...but that's what it appears to be.
