Editors' Review

It's hard to tell if registry defraggers and cleaners work, but the Auslogics Registry Defragger looks good. It's hard to gauge if these programs are effective because once you're done using them, you'd need more than a mere store-bought machine with store-loaded programs to judge CPU speed.

When you run it, it tells you that it will perform a registry analysis, after which you will be able to review its registry report, and once that's done with you can run the registry optimization, requiring a reboot to defrag and compact the registry. It's a fairly serious program, and once you begin the analysis it won't let you move the mouse outside the program window. It also "strongly recommends" that users close all other programs while it runs, although this is a standard warning for registry-cleaning apps.

An expected change in clock speed or other performance benchmarks never materialized. Resource-intensive Internet browsers and e-mail clients may be piggish, but they're necessary and don't load any faster or slower than normal after running the reg defrag. Until a registry defragger or cleaner can demonstrate benchmarkable improvements to a computer, they'll be little more than 21st century snake oil.

"Defrag your Registry? YEAH!!!"

June 20, 2008  |  By Kevy_MT

 |  Version: Auslogics Registry Defrag 4.1.9

Pros

If you are like me, a person who is always trying out different programs on your computer, you will eventually notice that your computer starts to slow down. No matter what you tweak, it just won't run faster. First of all, I would suggest getting a good uninstall program such as Revo Uninstaller, and a decent Registry Cleaner such as RegCure, and finally a Registry Defrag utility! Believe it or not, your registry will become fragmented just like your hard drive, and it needs to be defragged just like your hard drive. Auslogics Registry Defrag is perfect, small in size, free, and fast! Did I mention it was FREE??? As always, be sure to create a "System Restore" point before messing with the registry, even do a simple backup of your registry before using any registry editor. After you have cleaned up the registry, run Registry Defrag, and you might be surprised at how much your PC will speed up!

"good software"

June 20, 2008  |  By melroseit

 |  Version: Auslogics Registry Defrag 4.1.9

Pros

It works well. I'm surprised at the ignorance of editor's review. As anyone who knows a little about databases can tell you, all databases, including the registry, can benefit from being optimised through defragmentation - this is not "snake oil" as snidely suggested by the cynical editor. The gains come in terms of stability.

"Bait for buying the optimizer may not be worth the defrag that other apps. can do"

June 18, 2008  |  By nbeltz

 |  Version: Auslogics Registry Defrag 4.1.9

Pros

It's pretty quick with a neat visualization.

Cons

Program bates you with optimization offer that isn't actually free. Otherwise it's just a typical, slightly quicker, defrag app. Made me angry enough to uninstall though.

"Very good for a free product"

June 16, 2008  |  By Vest6

 |  Version: Auslogics Registry Defrag 4.1.9

Pros

The program has nice visual effect and the review is full of useful information upon completion. After first use I had some startup improvement.

Cons

Like most defragger, it will only defrag one drive without user input. Be a boon if the program could do all drives sequentially without user input.

"Caused problems with my system"

June 13, 2008  |  By djbog

 |  Version: Auslogics Registry Defrag 4.1.9

Cons

After running the software, my internet settings had disappeared and my Start Menu programs had vanished! Thankfully the software creates a system restore point before it changes anything, so repairing the damage was easy.

For your information, I am running a Toshiba Satellite Pro with Vista Enterprise.
