Editors' Review

+
This easy-to-use tool lets you remove faulty Registry entries that slow down your computer, but the unreasonable trial period won't appeal to most users. Registry Booster presents an aesthetically pleasing interface with four sections--System Overview, Registry Scan, Settings, and Restore--organized in tabs. Among other things, the program scans for invalid ActiveX controls, file extensions, application paths, and file associations. You can minimize it to your system tray and perform error scanning in the background. Before you can proceed in removing entries, the program prompts you to back up your Registry. The scan was quick and errors were displayed for review with check boxes to indicate removal, but the trial version is limited to 15 repairs. Also included is a Registry Defragmenter to remove gaps left by the repair, although this feature also disabled in the demo. Though the trial limitation is on the stingy side, this program worked quickly and is easy enough for anyone to use.

"The most dreadful product I've ever installed!!"

August 03, 2010  |  By S-Zan

 |  Version: Registry Booster 2.0.1178.3872

Pros

Absolutely nothing! There should be a rating of minus stars!

Cons

With a 4-star rating from CNet, and more features than RegScrubXP offers, I installed the free trial. My PC ran fine, yet scan claims tons of errors, then asks me to buy the full version to fix, but I declined. Ever since, my PC is disintegrating!

Summary

I uninstalled the program and ran RegScrubXP to see how many errors it found, and it only found a fraction of this claimed by registry booster, but unlike previously, it could not list or offer the option to fix the errors. When I went out to my desktop, many of my icons were missing and their texts had only the shadows left. Internet Explorer intermittently loses all of its graphics. I have tried restoring many times to correct this mess it has made in my registry, but the problem just starts over and over. It is a nightmare. I have searched the internet for solutions, but there doesn't seem to be one. When I try to install other registry cleaners to correct this, the buttons are empty as well as the menus, so I can't even install them. It gradually removes all system resources so that no commands can be run. Right now I am in Safe Mode trying to undo the mess. How can CNet recommend such awful software?

"This should be ZERO STARS."

August 09, 2009  |  By eglassell

 |  Version: Registry Booster 2.0.1178.3872

Pros

There is nothing to recommend this software.

Cons

malware, ruins computer.

Summary

Stay away from this and other unibue products. Read review 'Mal-Ware' review below. Go to WOT - Web of Trust site and see what they say about uniblue. It messes with your registry, lets in all sorts of stuff. Really messed up my computer - it went downhill ever since installation a year ago. My husband and I have twin computers. He didn't install it and his is still perfect.

"Soo Lameeee"

August 03, 2009  |  By giantpandarobot

 |  Version: Registry Booster 2.0.1178.3872

Pros

Fast Scan, but that's all

Cons

Only cleans registry
Costs Money
DEMO ONLY FIXES 15 errors max
I had 400 or so (when i scanned with uniblue, ccleaner found over 600 in my registry alone)

Summary

LOL after I uninstalled this dumb program, it left rogue start menu keys in the registry.

you would expect a registry cleaner to be impeccable.

CCleaner is free and found wayyy more errors. It also made an accessible backup for me and stored it in a place of my choosing.

CCleaner is a much better choice, dont spend money when you dont need to, no?

Bottom-line
Waste-of-time

"A close shave avoiding it!"

July 26, 2009  |  By ohdingobongo

 |  Version: Registry Booster 2.0.1178.3872

Pros

I'm getting away without serious damage and general agro to my computer. Trying to control svhost.exe lead me to their buy it page. I'm removing the tryout version.

Cons

It's hard to believe that a legit looking page advertising this product can be such a con! You streetwise dudes!

Summary

Avoid like the plague!

"They are malware-distributors!"

July 02, 2009  |  By hunhistory

 |  Version: Registry Booster 2.0.1178.3872

Pros

Nothing, I only like it's graphics.

Cons

This is a rogue software chasing people to buy it, and after they buy it, it ruins the users registry.

Summary

This is a rogue software chasing people to buy it, and after they buy it, it ruins the users registry. Please don't buy this software, I did it my self, and it was a big mistake! I was not able to run Command Prompt, Registry Editor, and lots of Windows programs. After I uninstalled this software, my registry was still unaccessable, but I made a program and somehow, I managed to fix these. For more information, that what others think about this program, visit: http://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/liutilities.com/ - The Web Of Trust scorecard for Registry Booster.

"registry error not found-had to remove manually"

June 11, 2009  |  By loish357

 |  Version: Registry Booster 2.0.1178.3872

Pros

since it is all behind the scenes and did not resolve my problem it is hard to evaluate

Cons

did not resolve my problem and I wasted $30 on product and then had to go into registry and manually remove the file so how good is this product???

Summary

I spent hours on the uniblue website trying to buy the product and it would not accept my entries which were correct. turned off the computer tried another computer. said you could chat but that did not work either. I should have realized then not to bother wasting my money.

"They are so full of bull..."

May 30, 2009  |  By fparis

 |  Version: Registry Booster 2.0.1178.3872

Pros

none. I won´t try it. And I tell you why...

Cons

This guys of uniblue are lying. Go to their web page an you will see by your self. They claim to have win a lot of awards (Cnet among them) that are not true.
So, are you gonna try a product from some one that lies like that?

Summary

They claim:
Cnet editor choice award - false
Cnet five star user rating - false
ZDnet editor choice award - also false
So, to resume, They are full of Bull sh...t
