    "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.

    "adds iminent software spy on your computer"

    April 19, 2013  |   By gromet

    Version: RegSeeker 2.4

    Pros

    regseeker has been on at least 7 of my computers over the years
    my compaint is this "iminent" malware that ended up on my computer
    even though i unchecked all the add on boxes.

    Cons

    i love regseeker but cnet has allowed a nasty little add on called
    "imenent" into your programs which is very bad controll over
    cnet downloads.
    come on cnet try harder.
    that said i've been using and depending on cnet for many years

    Summary

    STAY AWAY!

    "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    Maybe a little outdated, but if you are still running XP like me were running outdated software anyways.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

    Does a good job at cleaning, could be better. The other tools make up for that.
    Search for a key in your REG.
    Dont have to load it on your pc to use it.

    Cons

    A little simple.

    Summary

    Simple easy to use. Has some cool features.

    "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 5, 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.
