Editors' Review

Slow start, improper suggestions, and program hangs are just some of the problems you'll encounter with this buggy diagnostic utility.

Registry 911's simple function list and option window display is crowded and can't be resized. An option to move the app to the taskbar often prevented it from reappearing. Setting preferences is a simple matter of clicking the proper check boxes.

This utility does quickly check Windows Registry for improper or deleted file paths; unneeded uninstall entries; listed, but missing ActiveX and DLL entries; unused file extensions; and other common problems. However, it quite often suggested the wrong course of action. During our tests, Registry 911 routinely suggested eliminating needed programs from the system startup area. The deep scan to discover invalid file paths was slower than many similar diagnostic tools. Lists of Registry entries slotted for deletion are impossible to sort by value or location. Numerous times during our tests the app would lock after a simple function selection. There appeared to be no rhyme or reason to the issue.

Oddly, each time you run Registry 911, it runs Windows Installer multiple times with the notice that Windows is configuring the utility. With no outstanding functionality, and so many problems, we can't recommend this app to any level user.

"Problems and no support!"

March 25, 2006  |  By ssnake

 |  Version: Registry 911 2.0.4

Cons

After installing this software, everytime I rebooted my machine it would reinstall itself. Could not find a solution and after contacting support, NO REPLY! Second time with a threat of disputing on credit card, NO REPLY! Contacted credit card and got a refund. Bottom line: Because the software would automatically reinstall itself on every reboot, it slowed bootup time considerably. The software was already installed and I have no clue why it would try to reinstall over and over without even asking. When I e-mailed support for a solution no reply. when I e-mailed for a refund, no reply. Still have never heard one word from this company. Thankfully after disputing the charge on credit card the credit card company refunded my money and still have not heard from this company. This company claims 24/7 support- NOT! Your on your own if you have issues. Nuff said.

"definately improved my speed"

February 24, 2006  |  By singhlee81

 |  Version: Registry 911 2.0.4

Pros

I don't know if it improved it by 750% but it definately sped up my xp professional system. It found around 700 errors and I rebooted after repairing and it shaved off some bootup time and my world of warcraft game runs much much smoother now. I'm gonna turn up the graphics on some other games and see if I can finally run them in better quality.

I highly recommend this program

A few invalid file paths kept coming back after i rebooted. I emailed their support and they told me some programs just keep putting these back. It was only a few but i guess that's why you run the software on a continuous basis and let it scan once a week (they recommended).

Cons

I didn't find this sooner!
