"doesn't work great"

March 15, 2013  |  By rebeccawhite01

 |  Version: AML Free Registry Cleaner 3

Pros

quick, looks good

Cons

doesn't clean as it should

Summary

I always check out this website before downloading registry software for pc/mac - www.microsoftapple.com - My personal favourite is smart pc fixer because it's just incredibly simple to use and does exactly what it's name suggests. A good mac alternative is detox my mac for similar reasons.

"Life Saver"

March 11, 2013  |  By cjwaywell

 |  Version: AML Free Registry Cleaner 3

Pros

Shifted Delta Search Engine No Trouble.

Cons

You have to untick the rubbish that you don't want to subscribe to.

Summary

Be slow when downloading so you don't end up with more than what you wanted. Otherwise this program is great.

"YOU'RE BETTER OFF WITH ANOTHER REG CLEANER"

June 23, 2010  |  By macroez

 |  Version: AML Free Registry Cleaner 3

Pros

* CAN'T THINK OF ANY *

Cons

* VERY SLOW AND NOT VERY REASSURING *

Summary

* RUNS A LITTLE CLUNKY * SCAN RESULTS LIST IS UPDATED WITH EVERY NEW ENTRY FOUND * BECAUSE THE PROGRAM DOES-NOT CHECK SYSTEM FLAGS (LIKE MOUSE LEFT-BUTTON SELECT) , AND THE PROGRAM SEEMS TO BE UNINTERRUPTABLE EVEN WHEN NOT-USNG 100% PROCESSOR TIME , THE RESULTS LIST JUST FLICKERS BUT YOU CAN'T VIEW MORE THAN JUST THE TOP OF THE LIST * THERE IS-NO INDICATION THAT THE SCAN HAS FINISHED * IT HAS AN EXCLUDE LIST THAT MUST BE EDITED OR ENTRY REMOVED ONE LINE AT A TIME (AND PRESUMABLY UNRECOVERABLE UNLESS YOU MAKE A LIST SEPERATELY AND REENTER) * THERE IS-NO CHECK BOX TO IGNORE THE EXCLUDE LIST WITHOUT DOING THIS MANUAL WORK * IT DOES FIND A GOOD NUMBER OF REGISTRY ERRORS BUT THE LIST IS LOST IF YOU SELECT ANOTHER BUTTON AFTER SCANNING (REQUIRING A RESCAN) * REGISTRY SEARCH (FOR KEY OR VALUE/TEXT) IS EXTREMELY SLOW * DISK CLEANER, STARTUP MANAGER, UNINSTALL MANAGER, AND PROCESS MANAGER ARE VERY LIMITED * THE PROGRAM DOES-NOT GIVE CONFIDENCE THAT IT IS DOING WHAT YOU THINK IT'S DOING *

""Better but use with caution ""

February 06, 2010  |  By Pasui

 |  Version: AML Free Registry Cleaner 3

Pros

It detects more than the other free registry cleaner, i lke this.The feature-search registry is good but not for me.

Cons

Registry backup keep at my C drive not D drive.Full backup takes lot of space.Cannot just fix all errors..The appearance no better than ccleaner.plain colorrr

Summary

not appropriate for those with basic knowledge on registry, like me.Like the others said, yeah it's too agressive.
full backup of registry which take lots of space.The backup also put in the aml folder in program files of my C drive which i think should be put at D drive. U cannot just fixed all error detected, which i did.I reboot later and windows search service cannot start that it has to create new index..Coz i deleted some of it ... This cleaner works best for those with good knowledge in registry.

"Warning."

January 14, 2008  |  By LaineValentine

 |  Version: AML Free Registry Cleaner 3

Cons

I have Avast! Antivirus software on my PC.

Right as I had downloaded just the INSTALL FILE for this is, it came up with a virus and a trojan warning. I"m not sure if its real or just Avast! being paranoid, but I would 100% reccomend running a full virus scan on any file downloaded. Its just common sense.

This program sounds wonderful for people who know what they're doing with the registry, but I don't want to risk re-installing windows for the second time just because I want to clean my registry for free.

"Very good freebie but NOT for the faint hearted"

January 13, 2008  |  By Cristiano59

 |  Version: AML Free Registry Cleaner 3

Pros

Excellent but I am in agreement with the last reviewer it is VERY agressive! Very quick and very thorough. I found it very useful and more thorough than any of the other free reg cleaners I have tried so far. It found more invalid entries than any other and exactly the same number as a paid for trial I did last week!

Cons

It may be a little much for anyone with only a basic knowledge of registries. I suggest a back up before scanning. Then go through each registry entry considered invalid, very carefully. If not for the agressiveness I would have given it 5*'s.

"Good registry cleaner, but aggressive."

January 09, 2008  |  By Zane77

 |  Version: AML Free Registry Cleaner 3

Pros

When this registry cleaner opens click create windows registry backup, then click backup and close that window. Click next and it can examine all registry areas, or you can select areas to be examined.

I let it examine all areas and it found 585 invalid registry entries. But I only removed 184 registry entries, that I knew were invalid. Before you click remove all, double click on any registry problem to open the registry editor. And read the name of the registry key for more information. Another nice feature is has is a program uninstaller, that works good for uninstalling programs.

Cons

It's aggressive with the registry so create the backup, because it can be used to restore deleted registry entries.

Pros

It found over 700 dud entries in my registry.

Cons

It doesn't give much help on the alternatives after scanning, so I just went for "remove all"
