Editors' Review

Everything about this freeware tool is misleading. Although the publisher claims that it can scan and clean your Registry, Registry Checker Tool does neither and it's really just a ploy to get you to purchase another program.

Registry Checker Tool begins by walking you through a self-diagnosis. It doesn't perform its own diagnosis or scan your computer. Testers found that, regardless of the issues entered during the self-diagnosis, the program always reported that they were tied to Registry errors. And, in each case, the only solution offered was to download another application, RegCure, a Registry-cleaning program. You can't even re-run Registry Checker Tool's diagnosis process until you download the new application. RegCure will scan your computer, but in order to clean any errors you have to register the program, which isn't free.

Registry Checker Tool doesn't do anything it promises to do, and it's a really poor marketing effort for RegCure. While there are plenty of Registry cleaners that limit the ability to clean during trial, the good ones don't resort to subterfuge to get you to try out their product. This freeware serves no purpose on its own. Don't waste your time with this one.

    "Rubbishware"

    Version: Registry Checker Tool 8.1

    Pros

    the program will lead you to a download of another application, RegCure, inmediately. This new application will find hundreds of errors, most of they phoney.

    Cons

    Dishonestware.
