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.

"Installs Unwanted Software Too - Very Unethical"

May 23, 2013  |  By delmar858

 |  Version: Free Window Registry Repair 2.7

Pros

Software stated in title just might work

Cons

Even though you unclick the box to NOT install the Sweetpacks toolbar, the download installs many other unwanted programs anyway. Browser hijacks, etc.

"Don't Trust It!"

May 20, 2013  |  By elizabethgosney

 |  Version: Free Window Registry Repair 2.7

Pros

none.. didn't try it

Cons

I was going to install this program until I clicked on the custom install option and realized it would have downloaded the very same malware I just spent all day trying to remove (sweetpacks). At this point, I don't trust it at all. If you do decide to download, make sure you use the custom install option and don't download that piece of crap virus know as sweet packs!

"NO Malware in this fine program"

May 20, 2013  |  By Randy Bell

 |  Version: Free Window Registry Repair 2.7

Pros

Contains no malware; user reports otherwise implies they didn't opt out of unwanted toolbars, etc. at installation. ALL free software must have ad sponsors in order to remain free. This program finds MANY useless registry keys & values that other Registry Cleaners, even the paid ones, miss.

Cons

none that I know of

Summary

This nice program has a very basic interface but is good at finding useless registry entries that other reg-cleaners do not find. It works on both x32 and x64 versions of Windows. I don't understand why users are reporting malware; which by definition is malicious software that can wreck one's PC. CNET does NO publish infected software, period.

"Worked OK but installed unwanted junkware."

March 04, 2013  |  By Sandvika2

 |  Version: Free Window Registry Repair 2.7

Pros

Eliminated about 80% of obsolete junk from registry. Did not clean out history or obsolete shortcuts that Windows had created. Did not clean out the copious mess RealPlayer left when it was uninstalled.

Cons

Installed junkware because I did not select "advanced" install and deselect it. Spam-click 'next' at your peril.....

Summary

Did a reasonable job of removing about 2000 obsolete junk items from the registry, but it then took me about 10 minutes to identify and uninstall the various other items (including Wajam and Whitesmoke) that came with it, and reinstate my browser settings as I had them previously. I'd have given it 4/5 rather than 2/5 if it had not messed me around by installing this junk.

Pros

nothing....

Cons

nothing....

Summary

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (PRO) 1.70.0.1100

C:\Windows.old\Program Files (x86)\Free Window Registry Repair\Regpair.exe (Trojan.FakeRP)

This program is like some free games out there that there is no digital signature ... and so the trojan in the program. Everything is free has its price!

"Wrong Program"

February 17, 2013  |  By Bharata44

 |  Version: Free Window Registry Repair 2.7

Pros

None, as it was not the program expected.

Cons

Downloaded a totally different useless program - some stupid thing called ILivid from Bandoo Software. (Bandit Software more like it). I was livid. Why aren't these nuisances screened out by CNet?

Summary

Stay away from this time wasting Malware!
