    "Uses the same ploy as other similar tools in this category...but..."

    April 5, 2008  |   By brecklundin


    It does seem to do something to clean up the detritus left behind by other apps that have (intentionally?) poor uninstall &/or clean-up tools.

    Still there are other tools one can d/l which are dedicated to clean removal of badly behaving apps and there is a free tool from SysInternals that defrags the registry (hives & all) extremely well and has a decade long history behind it.

    No matter I did pop for the cost of upgrading to the paid version of these tools simply because I like their defrag util. But I agree it's a bit misleading to claim to be a free util only to report what it might be able to fix if you give them some cash...

    But it does seem to do something...what exactly, like the C|net reviewer, it does, I am not 100% certain...I can say I tested the restore point it will create and it does seem to at least call the correct XP functions to create a restore point.


    combined into the pro's section as there is only one downside I see and that is the lack of full disclosure that the "free" version is essentially crippled to the point of uselessness.
