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.

"Works great and it really is free!"

April 17, 2012  |  By msecour

 |  Version: Free Window Registry Repair 2.6

Pros

Installed quickly and discovered more than 2,200 errors on the first scan -- all of the non-existent folder/emptry value variety. It fixed the errors and everything is fine after a re-boot.

Cons

None so far.

"Seems to have worked pretty well"

February 28, 2012  |  By username888

 |  Version: Free Window Registry Repair 2.6

Pros

I don't know much about registry problems, but I was getting registry error messages. I ran this program and it found over 3,000 problems. This program was easy to install and run.

Cons

When I ran it again, there were 400 registry errors. Don't know if these were new problems or errors that weren't fixed the first time around.

Summary

At any rate, I'm getting fewer error messages and system freezes since using the program.

"Malicious program"

February 25, 2012  |  By kamanza

 |  Version: Free Window Registry Repair 2.6

Pros

Restore function & easy uninstall

Cons

After "repairing" 1425 (sic!!!) errors it crashed my computer completely.
It took restore + system restore + startup repair to fix it partially. I will probably have to reinstall Windows to repair the damage.

Summary

If you see it in the street, cross to the other side.
(There is no option for 0 stars, so i give it 1)

"It doesn't appear to work very well."

February 22, 2012  |  By trobinsonemail

 |  Version: Free Window Registry Repair 2.6

Pros

clean and quick BUT...

Cons

It says it FIXED errors, but when you reboot and re-run the scan it finds the errors again and again.

Summary

Something is not right about this program. I thought C/NET had tested and approved it. What's up with that?
