Messing with the registry is dangerous and should never be done unless there is a very specific problem.
Doesn't really seem to do anything beneficial. Why oh why? To reclaim a few MB's messing around with the registry is a dumb idea.
Small download, GUI is simple to use.
None that I can comment on
Many experts will say that registry cleaning is not necessary but seem to agree and/or suggest that registry optimization is a good idea.
Free, fast, easy to use, very stable in Windows XP.
Lack of post XP support
Used this app for years and is the most stable way to compact the registry that I have found, never had a problem after 100's of times running this and the performance on my XP box has always been as good as new.
The first time I used it I saw an impressive increase in my computer's performance.
The second time I used it, NTREGOPT corrupted my registry and it took me a few days to repair it.
Efficient but dangerous
like the way it organises the registry. Speeds up my system for short time.
boost it gives does not last past a few hours.
easy to use

I don't object to negative reviews but in what way is a Pro and Con of "WARNING!!!!!" helpful? Do you have specific issues with this product that will help others to decide? This product has over 95% approval rating on many sites. (I haven't actually done empirical research, I'm ball-parking the numbers.)
The program is small and executed quickly.
Will someone, CNET Editors perhaps, explain what is the difference between compacting and compressing. If they mean the same thing, I sure hell don't want my registry files to be compressed. As far as I know, compression means the compressed files have to be 'uncompressed' in order for the O/S to read it and it actually slows down the process. If this is the case, how does one undo what this little program did? Another downside is, this program has not been developed since 2005. Is this as good as it gets?
I highly recommend this if you have a tendency to tweak with your system and/or like installing and uninstalling software.
I wouldn't really recommend this for novices, as one should always be careful with the registry, but instead Auslogics Registry Defrag.
This program is very simple and easy to use. When I opened NTREGOPT it has a small window, that says welcome this program optimizes the registry files of your windows.
Next I click ok to start the process then it will optimize the registry. Now another window appears with the results of my computer. Registry optimization is complete, current registry size 28,872,704 bytes reduced to 28,041,216 bytes, which is a 3% reduction.
Does require computer to be restarted to activate the optimized registry.
