    "Be VERY Careful- unless you know what you are doing!"

    November 7, 2010  |   By Josan11

    Version: Free Registry Defrag 3.0

    Pros

    Easy, clean interface-Free

    Cons

    I don't know how valuable these cleaners are. If you don't know what you are doing it's best to stay away. I have had to reformat my hard drive many times over the years by just hitting clean. It DOES NOT help you by warning what NOT to delete!

    Summary

    USE WITH CAUTION> Read CNET articles on registry cleaners. I just did a complete clean Install due to a Registry cleaner! This WAS MY FAULT. So again--read, read , read...and be careful! BACKUP FREQUENTLY--I Have found ASC Advanced System Care free version to be completely adequate for novice users, like me.

    "Works as advertised!"

    September 9, 2010  |   By scoff_man

    Version: Free Registry Defrag 3.0

    Pros

    Simple to use interface. It compacted my registry 8% MORE even after using Uniblue's Registry Booster 2 (2009 edition) commercial utility to optimize & defrag my registry. That's not a huge gain BUT it does show you this FREE app really does work!

    Cons

    There are none. (Please CNET, there's no reason to have to enter at least 10 characters for this field...that's just asinine.) http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/asinine

    Summary

    It would be nice to actually be able to watch the utility parse through the registry and show where the fragmentation occurs rather than just having a generic progress bar, but it's probably faster that way. To those that have complained that this utility has broken or corrupted Windows on their computer I have this to say: More than likely your system already had a fair amount of registry corruption and by attempting to defrag it you inadvertently made it worse - so you really can't blame this utility for that. It's designed to DEFRAG your registry, not REPAIR it. I'd suggest using this utility prior to defragging the Registry: http://download.cnet.com/Free-Window-Registry-Repair/3000-2086_4-10606555.html Another utility I'd recommend is PageDefrag, which defrags the Page file and the files that make up the Windows Registry (as opposed to defragging the registry itself): http://download.cnet.com/PageDefrag/3000-2086_4-10547422.html

    "Good idea but horrible program!!!"

    June 13, 2010  |   By Skuggvarg

    Version: Free Registry Defrag 3.0

    Pros

    Well, the user interface is nice and clean, easy to understand, and the program is fairly fast...but that's about all.

    Cons

    After my first use of this program, Windows refused to load! Luckily, I had a restore point, so I could still access my computer. So how about I call this program unstable, unpredictable, unreliable and unworthy of your time? It's just DANGEROUS!!!

    Summary

    Well, IF you actually want to use this program, make damn sure you have a way to restore your computer to the way it was before the defragmentation, otherwise you run the risk of seriously damaging your computer.
