Eusing Free Registry Cleaner provides safe and quick registry maintenance for Windows computers. This program comes with its own installer and supports many languages. The overall performance is satisfactory but the user interface could use some improvement.
Eusing Free Registry Cleaner features a basic interface divided into three sections--tasks, selections to scan, and the output window. You can choose to scan the entire registry or just portions of the registry that you feel are causing problems. Some areas of the registry that can be scanned on an individual basis are empty keys, applications, shortcuts, and other key areas. The scan gives you a list of keys that have errors as it finds them. You can peruse the list during the scan. One problem with this program is that since there are typically many registry keys that need to be repaired, there is no mechanism to search for specific keys so that you can further narrow your repair. Instead, you must manually scroll down the key list and decide which ones will be repaired and which ones will be left alone.
Eusing Free Registry Cleaner belongs to "safe" registry cleaners because it allows the user to back up the old registry and windows, as well as create a restore point. If you do these things, you will be protected even if you choose the wrong registry keys to repair. Novice and expert users can easily use this program, although novice users should take care with any app that impacts the registry.

First time use found 272 registry entries, values, etc, not needed. I cleaned them. Second time, the next day, it only found 5 entries.
None that I know of.
Very thorough. I have been using Wise Registry Cleaner for a couple of years, but no more. This Eusing Cleaner does so much more in cleaning the registry!! I did a backup, just in case, before cleaning, and the program also backs up the registry for you. You can click on Restore Registry if you wish afterwards, if any problem.
After running Eusing Free Registry Cleaner twice, my CCleaner and Wise Disk Cleaner programs both run about 10 times faster!!
They are so fast now, that I really don't believe the "before and after" difference in doing a good registry cleaning job. Thanks Eusing.
No pros that I can see. I uninstalled it immediately when my computer started warning me about malware.
Downloaded with a bunch of malware that I spent hours cleaning out. I have the Malwarebytes and SpyBot logs to prove it if anyone thinks I'm lying. This is not a joke or an attempt to belittle CNET. I used to have a lot of respect for CNET.
I've had every version of this little gem. I've never had a problem or issue using it. Cleans far deeper than most registry cleaners/optimizers - free or paid. Simple interface and easy to use. Automatic backup. It's not an "all-in-one" like ASC. It just does the registry and it does it extremely well. Use it once a week and your registry will always be in good shape. I also use CCleaner and Advanced System Care Pro for daily maintenance. Both are more complete programs and have an adequate registry cleaning functions, but EFRC does it much better.
None, really. There is a splash/beg screen (which is fine by me - it is free, after all). Just click "skip". I am personally happy enough with this program to donate $5.00 once a year. I saw in another review that a person had an issue with backdoor/piggy-backed programs. I've never had that issue. Just uncheck them during installation.
Great at the one thing it does. Small footprint, big results.
didn't like the fact that a search bar/engine was automatically installed on my computer even after I unchecked the boxes. It's the backdoor downloads that piggy back onto the main item a person wants that are a royal nuisance. Now, I can't get rid of the search page that comes up every time I log on.
I would use it again if it would download without any added stuff. I have what I want and don't want any other stuff on my computer unless I personally do it
None. Program might work, but CNET bundled it with malware that gets installed against your will.
This product comes bundled with spyware/malware. Even if you select the "custom" installation option and decline the additional toolbar options, the installation of this program using the "CNET Installer" will still install multiple malware software programs on your computer. A few you will have to uninstall through the control panel, and others you will have to removed with MalwareBytes or other anti-malware software.
Bundled with Malware that gets installed against your will.
Cleans Registry, fixes program install errors (if re-installing), cleans registry.
A lot of people are complaining about it not "fully cleaning" the registry. There are a lot of registry entries that windows automatically makes (For me, 138 on windows 8). It will keep finding those every time it searches. I've never had issues with this causing problems. If all you're doing is running the search, then repairing the issues, you should have no problems. Note: Have been using since 2010 on Windows 7 and now Windows 8 and no issues. Have never used on Vista or WinXP.
"Experienced users should find a more useful product"?? I am an experienced user of computers for the last 30 years, and I have no idea what a more useful product would do!! It cleans the registry very well, and as you said, it does what it's supposed to do.
