Editors' Review

RegSeeker offers a powerful registry cleaner, but it's marred by a complex layout and rather slow performance. The program has a plain menu, takes forever to clean your files, and then doesn't really give you any statistics about what it's doing. You have to babysit it to make the most out of it, too. It's still better than cleaning these files manually, but not by much.

When you're installing the program, it tries to hit you with the Delta toolbar. Make sure you deselect all of the boxes, as deselecting only the main box still lets Delta change your homepage and search. RegSeeker's layout is nice to look at, but it's a pain to navigate. Finding the "Clean All" button that everyone will be looking for takes a minute or two. The rest of the navigation panels relate to features that only advanced techies probably need. If you're one of those, you're probably not using this program. Cleaning took about an hour and sent frequent pop-notifications. It would be nice if the program just mentioned those conflicts after it was finished. The program didn't give any sort of analysis once it was done. In fact, it just decided to close itself once it finished cleaning.

If you're a stickler for advanced options, you might find something to like about RegSeeker. Users who just want a faster, less cluttered computer should look for alternatives that are just faster and more efficient than this program.

"Flakey on Some Machines"

October 21, 2013  |  By Harry_Devlin

 |  Version: RegSeeker 2.55

Pros

Sometimes works.

Cons

RegSeeker is an interesting program, unfortunately there's a persistent bug in it that comes and goes with different revisions. If you include ActiveX /COM (CLSID) in th the cleaning, you'll get the error message: Type de donnees incorrect pour "

Summary

They need to fix the bugs.

"I use this program on all of my computers"

October 17, 2013  |  By gromet

 |  Version: RegSeeker 2.55

Pros

Easy to find reg. files, auto clean is at first nerve racking but
after doing it for 10 years now it seems safe and make the computer
slightly faster.

Cons

If you use a lot of programs you'll be fine but if your not used
to using new software you may need to ask someone to help you.

Summary

This program has been out a long time and although I don't use it
very often,it's on all of my computers now and will be on all my computers in the future.

cnet downloads.

"Good, Light, Doesn't need to be installed"

April 23, 2011  |  By QUlNTESSENTIAL

 |  Version: RegSeeker 1.55

Pros

Maybe a little outdated, but if you are still running XP like me were running outdated software anyways.
Doesn't work on Windows 7

Cons

Very lightweight program, doesn't require installation, run once, clean, repeat when needed.
The main registry and various other history and other cleaners in it all work very very well.

Summary

A must have in your arsenal, but of no use if you upgrade to Win7

"DO NOT USE"

November 13, 2010  |  By bookish77

 |  Version: RegSeeker 1.55

Pros

I can think of nothing positive about this program.

Cons

Destroys your system.

Summary

I downloaded this product based on some positive reviews and sorely regret it. I used the Auto Clean option and shortly afterward noticed the sound on my computer was gone. Unfortunately, my choice was to reboot my computer and I was unable to restart it, despite many tries--Windows tried to run it's repair and it didn't work because obviously the registry was damaged. I ended up having to reinstall my system and lost all my programs, email, everything. I was foolish not to have backed up. I'm running Windows 7 64 bit, so strongly urge anyone using this system not to try this software.

"Excellent Registry Cleaner."

August 05, 2010  |  By Akutaj

 |  Version: RegSeeker 1.55

Pros

Have been using it since 4 to 5yrs may be. The newer versions now have more option and lot faster. We can safely delete whatever error it finds since it backs up before any deletion.

Cons

If it had registry defragmention it would have been lot better. Also description of error could have come in handy.
