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 when it comes to 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 3 minutes, although don't forget that the scan time depends on the computer system. A smart-looking row of five tabs and their labels makes navigating the program options stress-free, and 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. New features include advanced tweaking options for power users, faster performance on NTFS systems, selective CPU priority, so you can set specific programs to get more CPU attention than others, and a start-up accelerator.

There's also a scheduler and tools for scanning, optimizing, and backup, and an exclusion list to prevent certain Registry entries from accidentally being altered. For beginning and intermediate users, this should be enough. Keep in mind that the trial version of the program is severely limited and can be difficult to evaluate for the home user. Advanced Registry Optimizer will clean your computer's clock and keep it ticking. Just don't expect it to do your household chores.

"May cause more harm than good."

January 28, 2011  |  By groucho7

 |  Version: Advanced Registry Optimizer 2010

Pros

Claims to clean and optimize the registry.

Cons

Like most other products of this kind, it may do more harm than good. The user has little control over the operation of this product.

Summary

Don't use registry cleaners and optimizers unless something is really wrong with your system, in which case a re-installation of your operating system and programs may be called for.

"Bundled and Unwanted!"

December 26, 2010  |  By KSmith2011

 |  Version: Advanced Registry Optimizer 2010

Pros

Nothing at all. If you want registry maintenance there are 20 programs better suited and LESS SNEAKY.

Cons

Installed on my computer without my permission via Weather.com desktop.

Summary

Sammsoft can deny it all they want, but this program was also installed on my system via the weather.com desktop. Weather.com gives no mention of the program during installation, much less an option to deny it. Apparently Sammsoft doesn't care since they refuse the report made in April and STILL have not fixed the issue.

"...a piece of trash!!"

December 23, 2010  |  By MorpheusOne

 |  Version: Advanced Registry Optimizer 2010

Pros

It was simple enough to uninstall. That's the only positive aspect of this program that I encountered!

Cons

See the summary.

Summary

I run a pretty tight ship on my computer but, according to this program I had over 1300 registry errors. While I suppose that's not completely impossible, that's a joke!! It only allows you to fix the first 100 registry errors; if you want everything else fixed, above 100, then you have to buy the full version. That's the most pathetic scam I've heard in a while!

And while I didn't dl the version available on cnet.com, I'm amazed that they, as a respectable website, would offer such a nefarious & insidious, evil, little program...

I would have given it "0 stars" if I could have!

"'Big bad con'"

December 16, 2010  |  By Tonynio

 |  Version: Advanced Registry Optimizer 2010

Pros

Nothing good about this product....NOTHING!

Cons

This garbage software is just a damn hoax it lets you try it, but for them to fix all the problems that you know you don't have you have to buy it.

Summary

I would never recommend this to anyone. I use and trust Glary utilities, how can Glary says i have 7 or8 registry problems,and it's never to far off from one day to the next.so for the heck of it i download Advanced Registry Optimizer it tells me i have something like 400 problems but they where nice enough to fix some but you better buy our product quick so we can fix the rest. WHAT BULL S..T !

"Great maintainance program for common computer users."

December 15, 2010  |  By speedyrabbit36

 |  Version: Advanced Registry Optimizer 2010

Pros

Easy navigation and excellent processes.

Cons

Totally crashed my WIn 7 64 bit sytem when I uninstalled it.

Summary

Does what it is supposed to do. Great for the everyday computer user. I had used previous versions for several years that worked great on 32 bit systems. Won't be using again, I don't enjoy redoing operating systems and having to reload all of my programs.
