"A VERY THOROUGH AND SAFE REGISTRY CLEANER AND FREE TOO"

June 23, 2010  |  By macroez

 |  Version: Argente - Registry Cleaner 1.5.1.3

Pros

* ARGENTE REGISTRY CLEANER APPEARS TO BE A QUITE THOROUGH AND SAFE RC * ITS GUI IS VERY SATISFACTORY WITH SOME SUGGESTIONS FOR IMPROVEMENT *

Cons

* I DIDN'T FIND ANY SERIOUS FLAWS IN ARGENTE REGISTRY CLEANER BUT SOME IMPROVEMENTS TO THE INTERFACE COULD BE CONSIDERED *

Summary

* EXTREMELY WELL DESIGNED REGISTRY SCANNER AND CLEANER WITH TERRIFIC GUI * DISPLAYS THE ITEM BEING EVALUATED AS IT FLIES THROUGH THE LIST * FIX REGISTRY ITEMS AFTER THE SCAN (DEFAULT IS SCAN , CHOOSE PROCEDURE IN "CONFIGURE") * LIST OF FAULTS GROWS IN A DISPLAY LIST THAT DOESN'T FLICKER * LEFT MOUSE BUTTON PAUSES PROGRESS WHEN HELD DOWN ALLOWING SCROLLING THE LIST * WHEN FINISHED , SELECT A SUBLIST AND DISPLAY WILL SHOW ONLY THOSE ITEMS * NUMBER OF FAULTS DISPLAYED NEXT TO EACH SUBLIST AND TOTAL * TAKES A WHILE (FEW MINUTES) TO SCAN EVERYTHING BUT APPEARS TO WORK VERY EFFICIENTLY FINDING EVERYTHING * PROCESSOR PINNED AT 100% DURING SCAN ACCOUNTS FOR ITS GREAT SPEED * BACKUP CURRENT REGISTRY FEATURE ALLOWS ASSURED SAFETY BEFORE FIXING FAULTS , AND RECOVER ANY NUMBER OF BACKUPS TO RESTORE PREVIOUS REGISTRY STATES * SCANNING SAFELY FINDS FAULTS BUT DOES-NOT CHANGE THE REGISTRY UNTIL FIX SELECTED * AFTER SCANNING , SELECT ANY ITEM ON THE LIST OR SUBLIST TO GET EXPLANATION OF FAULT * EXPLANATION LINE A BIT FAINT AND HARD TO READ * NEEDS TO ALLOW SELECTION OF A SUBLIST TO DISPLAY DURING SCANNING (MINOR GRIPE) * COULD ALSO USE AN AUTOSCROLL TO STAY AT THE BOTTOM OF THE LIST BUT THIS MIGHT SLOW SCANNING DOWN DUE TO REFRESHING * CHECK BOXES WOULD BE NICE INSTEAD OF DELETING EACH ITEM TO NOT-FIX * THERE NEEDS TO BE TWO BUTTONS IN THE FRONT/MAIN PRESENTATION WHICH SEPARATE THE "SCAN" AND "REPAIR" STEPS * THIS WOULD GIVE GREATER CONFIDENCE THAT THE REGISTRY WILL-NOT BE ALTERED UNTIL SCANNING IS COMPLETE AND THE USER CAN SELECT TO GO AHEAD WITH A REGISTRY REPAIR SEPARATELY * WOULD LIKE TO HAVE A "FIND" FEATURE IN THE ERRORS LIST * "REPAIR ERRORS NOW" (AFTER SCAN) MEANS REPAIR ALL ERRORS IN THE TOTAL LIST , NOT JUST THE SUBLIST THAT IS BEING VIEWED * FORTUNATELY , THE ENTIRE REGISTRY IS BACKED UP INTO A FILE (BE SURE TO LOOK UNDER THE CONFIGURE BUTTON , GENERAL SETTINGS , TO ASSERT THIS BACKUP FEATURE) * UNFORTUNATELY , THE BACKUP FILE IS IN REGISTRY EDITOR VERSION 5 MODE AND IS RELATIVELY UNREADABLE TEXT * THE BACKUP ALSO INCLUDES A HUGE NUMBER OF SEPARATE FILES , SEEMINGLY ONE FOR EACH KEY THAT WAS REPAIRED (SOME FILES APPEAR TO BE GROUP CATEGORIES) * TO ITS CREDIT , ARGENTE REGISTRY CLEANER DID FIND AND REPAIR A HUGE NUMBER OF ERRORS *

* WELL , I'M HAPPY TO REPORT THAT MY COMPUTER REBOOTED JUST FINE AFTER THE REGISTRY FIX AND PROGRAMS SEEM TO BE WORKING PROPERLY *
