Editors' Review

+

While not the fastest or most powerful of registry optimizing tools, this freeware does the job well. Free Windows Registry Repair's interface presents the bare minimum needed to operate the utility. Press an icon to start a full registry scan. The scan is quick but not one of the fastest we've seen. If you're not in the mood to scan your full registry, the Custom Scan function offers any combination of 15 areas to scan. All problems are prechecked and easily fixed through a click of a button.

Unfortunately, in its default setting, the program does not save a restore point before repairs. (We recommend changing that default on installation.) Repair was quick, but some items had to be manually removed after a system restart. That's not an unusual occurrence with programs in this genre.

The help screens are clear and concise but are available only online. With this software you won't get extra features, easy sorting of problems, great speed, or detailed analysis of problems found. Nonetheless, Free Window Registry Repair is accurately named and is a handy piece of freeware for any level user.

"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!!

"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.
