"Not happy. Actually is "Reg Clean Pro"."
Version: Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool (64-Bit) 5.3
It started running by itself after easy installation and found over 3,000 registry errors. Hopefully. Read my cons. If all my reservations about this program are answered, then maybe I will come back and give it 5 stars.
I did the install, despite the fact that it did NOT have the "Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool 64-Bit" name that CNET said it had. It is actually "Reg Clean Pro". It scanned and found over 3,000 registry errors but said it could only fix 15 for free. Unless I bought the full version. What?? First, I don't like that CNET did not have it described with the correct name or at least explain what would happen once you started the download process. Second, I don't like that I was given the idea that it was free (Hey, it said Free in the left side frame!) and it turned out I had to pay for the software to be fully operational.
Maybe it is good. Maybe they really did find 3,000 errors with the 'free' one-time scan. But doesn't it feel like some sort of scheme for so many errors to be found but not all would be fixed UNLESS I PAID UP and bought the thing? This reminds me of the "protection money" stuff by the mobs in big cities back in the 1920's. I doubt this is the case, but gee, how do I know?
I bet many older, non-techy people like me want to use and trust professional reviews and downloads simply because we don't understand all this. So, please make it straight forward with no surprises!!
