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.
