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.

"It works safely in most cases"

October 10, 2009  |  By aladroer

 |  Version: Registry Booster 2.1.1216.5631

Pros

It has worked fine for years for me.

Cons

There was only one program that didn't work after using Registry Booster except if it was open when I started Registry Booster. Nevertheless, every time I forgot to open it before, restoring the old registry solved the problem.

"Great Product - this was a point release update for me."

October 04, 2009  |  By fred0723

 |  Version: Registry Booster 2.1.1216.5631

Pros

Reasonable price - very stable. Its fixed my registry on a number of occations and never done any harm.

Cons

I thought that I had downloaded 2.1.1216 and installed it over 2.0.1178 - but it still shows shows 2.0.1178. Could Uniblue have forgotten to update the version # in "About"?

Summary

Great product - but I have found that there are registry entries, specifically around Paths and Empty Entries that it does not repair. However, there are problems that Registry Booster fixes that other tools do not. I now rely on several registry tools to keep my registry in order.

"WHAT? I HIGHLY RECOMMEND UNIBLUE'S POWER SUITE 2009!!!"

September 23, 2009  |  By wencassi

 |  Version: Registry Booster 2.1.1216.5631

Pros

CLEANS AND REPAIRS YOUR REGISTRY IN MINUTES
SCANS AND AUTOMATICALLY UPDATES DRIVERS FROM MANUFACTURER SITE
OPTIMIZES AND SPEEDS UP YOUR LAPTOP
MAKES ANY LAPTOP FEEL LIKE IT IS BRAND NEW..ALL I CAN SAY IS "WOW"!!!!!

Cons

YOU MUST PURCHASE THE SOFTWARE. IT IS NOT FREE BUT...
I SPENT A WEEK LOOKING FOR & TRYING DIFFERENT PROGRAMS THAT DID NOTHING TO HELP THE PERFORMANCE OF MY LAPTOP. IT IS WELL WORTH THE MONEY, FOR $45.00 YOU CAN GET THE ENTIRE SUITE.

Summary

LAPTOP USERS ESPECIALLY!! If you have a slow computer, like to play music or games or maintain business functions, you will NOT find a better solution. Believe me, I have tried everything and this software is the REAL THING!! NO..I DO NOT WORK FOR OR HAVE ANY AFFILIATION WITH THIS COMPANY, JUST A FRUSTRATED LAPTOP USER. Thank you so much UNIBLUE for offering this software. I purchased the UNIBLUE POWER SUITE 2009 for under $50 and within minutes after the install my laptop went from junk to super computer. I hope CNET users read this and install this software so you can avoid the headache I have had for a week searching for a program like this. I have no clue what the other users who reviewed this product were dealing with but it solved all my problems and more. THANKS AND ENJOY!!

"works ok but poor support"

August 24, 2009  |  By kfjohn

 |  Version: Registry Booster 2.1.1216.5631

Pros

Works well when I can get it to work.

Cons

I recently tried to reinstall into a new computer. I cannot get it to function. I have contacted Uniblue several times over the past month via their website and have been assigned ticket numbers, but there is no answer and they have no phone number

Summary

Decent product if you can get it to work. If you buy it and have problems, you're on your own. There is no way to get a hold of Uniblue after they have your money.
