Editors' Review

Free Window Registry Repair helps you remove all kinds of errors and other junk from your Registry to speed up your computer and keep things running smoothly. While this isn't a feature-packed program by any means, it performs its stated function and does it quickly.

Pros

Scan options: Through this program, you can choose to run either a Full or Custom scan. A Custom Scan allows you to select specific areas of the computer you'd like to scan, and it can often be completed more quickly than the Full Scan. The Full Scan, on the other hand, is a good option for less-experienced users who just want a quick way to improve system speed.

Restore points: You can choose to have the app create Restore Points each time it completes a cleaning. This is helpful because it gives you the ability to reverse any changes you make if you accidentally delete something you need.

Cons

No real Help: There is a Help option included in this program, but the page it takes you to is more of a Sales Page than an actual resource. Here you'll find a list of program features, but not really any guidance on how to use it or what to do if you run into trouble.

Incremental progress: Even after multiple scans run through this program consecutively, it still picks up new errors. So while each individual scan is quick, it can take a significant amount of time to get rid of all errors present on your computer.

Bottom Line

Free Windows Registry Cleaner is an effective option for improving your system speed quickly. It includes some nice features, and the interface makes them accessible to users of all experience levels.

"An adware nightmare! You have been warned."

June 23, 2014  |  By jsteffe

 |  Version: Free Window Registry Repair 2.8

Pros

I guess the basic function works OK, though it is hard to tell because of all the adware problems I encountered.

Cons

Installing this adds other programs that you don't want. What is worse, these programs hijack your computer. Among other things, it installed a Trovi tool bar that was especially difficult to remove.

Summary

Avoid at all costs!

"This program worked very well for me :-D"

June 07, 2014  |  By JKstorm

 |  Version: Free Window Registry Repair 2.8

Pros

Easy to use. Found over 4000 broken keys in over all five hives in a ten year old machine. Love it. I would suggest running it more than once per session. Will look forward to others from Regsofts.com and will check them out as well.

Cons

Came in with lots of spamware type advertising but not worms or virus. Easy to delete. I put this program in another machine but this time I read each page during setup. You can easily opt out of the other programs. Just decline them. The advertising may have paid for the program you are getting for free so I would not complain too much.

Summary

Love it!!

"If you don't understand the Registry, avoid this!"

June 06, 2014  |  By thos2

 |  Version: Free Window Registry Repair 2.5

Pros

1) So far as I can see it doesn't do serious damage, but doesn't do much good either.
2) Probably gets rid of some Registry errors, but so do dozens of other programs that don't make ridiculous claims about themselves.

Cons

1) If you're not careful, can install trojans on your PC that are extremely difficult to remove. I'm staggered that CNET are even offering this program, never mind giving it a good rating.
2) Can easily damage your Registry, but not beyond fixing.

Summary

People don't seem to realise that the Registry is more often damaged than not. Windows is very forgiving of this! Personally, after testing for a couple of weeks, I think this program is ineffective junk. I would ask those giving it a good rating, do you understand the "errors" it claims to find? If not, you're not competent to judge it.

If you find your Registry corrupted by trojans, very likely after using some CNET software, I found the best solutions are:
1) Use Wise Care 365 to get rid of the rubbish that tends to fill the Registry after a year or twos use. Make a backup of Registry - of course.
2) Again make a backup, and then use Windows Repair (All-in-one) from Tweaking.com. It doesn't pretend to be easy (the Registry isn't) but it does an amazing job of fixing problems. You'll have to trust it to download some software, believe me it's fine and you can easily uninstall it later if you wish. The program takes you through a logical and thorough technique to get rid of Registry hacks. And, please, when you find it works, send the guys a donation. This is one group that deserves one for offering professional software free.

"Basically a virus"

November 26, 2013  |  By sawelsh

 |  Version: Free Window Registry Repair 2.8

Pros

If you're a Bing lover, you'll love this because it hijacks your browser.

Cons

Don't do it! This is probably a registry cleaner, but it also downloads a bunch of annoying spybot/malware programs that hijack your browsers. I should have seen that CNET's review is old, and I clicked through the set-up screens quickly, only catching one sketchy-looking one. Now I'm uninstalling and undoing the damage. This is so bad that I endured Cnet's laborious sign-in, which will probably get me more spam e-mails, to save others from this horrible program.

Summary

CNET, I'm really disappointed. I've relied on you for years for safe downloads, and this is the last one.

"CNET = Outstanding? That is hard to believe."

October 19, 2013  |  By Mark R. Jones

 |  Version: Free Window Registry Repair 2.8

Pros

For my purposes, zero (0)

Cons

Not everyone is going to have the basic knowledge to see through the junkware that comes along with this download's install and the indiscriminate power of it's registry cleaner. As CNET puts it;

"this is a great, speedy program for all but the most novice user"

I suspect that it may have created as many problems as it has resolved, even with the backup features.

Summary

I am with nevermind111 & PoopStrong with their assessments as seen here/above.
