Free Window Registry Repair

CNET Editors' review

Free Window Registry Repair is a refreshingly simple tool for cleaning up your Windows Registry. It lacks the bells and whistles offered by some programs--such as special features for uninstalling programs or managing the Start menu--but thankfully so. This is a program that does something well and doesn't stray from that success.

The application's straightforward presentation and clear menu make this program appropriate for most users. The program opens to a window with very simple, step-by-step instructions. You can perform a full scan or select areas to examine. Scanning is quick, and the results list shows the data and key, sorted by problem type. The right-click menu lets you open the Registry to a specific item. Each time the program fixes a set of errors (you uncheck the ones you don't want fixed), it automatically creates a backup. This seems like a sensible and safe feature, making us wonder why most other repair makers make you manually create a restore point. Each backup is saved with a unique filename, allowing you to choose which one to reinstate via the Restore menu.

In addition to scanning, fixing, and restoring, Free Window Registry Repair offers an Options menu where you can choose keys to exclude from scanning as well as choose to create a system restore point prior to fixing errors. The program isn't perfect--the name of the program itself has a typo, and the Help file is actually not a help file--but overall, this is a great, speedy program for all but the most novice user.

    "Great utility everyone should have"

    January 4, 2011  |   By thinknow1

    Version: Free Window Registry Repair 2.0

    Pros

    It was a great tool and was better than the one I paid for. I ran many customized scans and cleaned the registry. When I ran into a problem with a software next day, I was able to restore the last severl registry backups until the issue corrected.

    Cons

    I didn't see any, yet.

    Summary

    It is a really fantastic tool if you want to deal with the untidy or corrupted registry.

    "Efficient, quick, does what it promises and no payment."

    December 12, 2010  |   By nshrikhande

    Version: Free Window Registry Repair 2.0

    Pros

    It does everything it promises free of cost in it's entirety. My windows7 machine recovered it's speed immediately after the repair. Clean ad-free GUI. Explicit functionality and it did the job.

    Cons

    None so far and maybe none ever.

    Summary

    All free ware registry scanners fix portions of the scanned errors then request payment. Free Window Registry Repair 2.0 is complete in it's promises and is indeed completely free fixing ALL the registry errors very fast. From a lethargic Win7 I got back the crisp speed I was accustomed to within a few minutes of downloading the free ware.

    "Almost certainly includes new TDL4 Rootkit Trojan"

    December 10, 2010  |   By theonlythingmissing

    Version: Free Window Registry Repair 2.0

    Pros

    Nothing that I can see.

    Cons

    Not clear what it does. Doesn't seem to fix anything.
    Most importantly: I am 90% sure that it includes a new TDL4 rootkit trojan infection - a severe piece of malware. Threat level: high. If you install this your confidential details are compromised.

    Summary

    High risk malware.
