Editors' Review

+

This program, like many others, promises to clean your registry, make your computer run faster and, if you're lucky, do your dishes, too. At least with cleaning your registry, Advanced Registry Optimizer seems to do a pretty good job.

The scan process was easy to initiate and was done in about three minutes, although don't forget that the scan time depends on the computer system. A row of five tabs makes navigating the program options stress-free while the lack of lag on the system was much appreciated. The user interface has quite a bit of white space, which makes options easy to see--but it's done in such a way as to make you feel like there's not much to the app.

This is true, in a way. There's a scheduler and scanning, optimizing, and backup tools, and an exclusion list to prevent certain registry entries from accidentally being altered. For beginning and intermediate users, this should be enough. It won't do household chores, but Advanced Registry Optimizer will clean your computer's clock and keep it ticking.

"despicable program"

February 27, 2011  |  By rehvac

 |  Version: Advanced Registry Optimizer 5

Pros

free, none, none

Cons

company program fools you into thinking you have a bunch of registry errors and problems just to get you to buy the upgrade.

Summary

i have a registry optimizer installed on my computer already and it was free. and it also found two registry errors and it fixed them. that program is called c cleaner and it was free to download as well.

"Unless software, SPAMMERS"

November 13, 2008

 |  Version: Advanced Registry Optimizer 5

Pros

did the job, but no better than comparable products.

Cons

I was required to provide an email address, so I provided a unique, traceable email address for my account. 6 weeks later I am inundated with spam from dozens of sources daily, coming in only on that specific & unique email address.

"Useful gadget"

September 06, 2008  |  By nigelwootton421

 |  Version: Advanced Registry Optimizer 5

Pros

Identifies suspicious, and troublesome software that cannot be dealt with by Windows. I managed to succsessfully secure a change of I.S.P. with AWC.
Cleans my computer of all web pages and privacy issues.

Cons

AWC could fix many more registry errors. It also has some advanced features that only programmers should touch.

Summary

It would be desirable to have an assured all-in-one computer fixer, with AWc's features, and complete registry cleaning too.
