Editors' review

Like countless similar programs, Registry Defender finds and deletes useless Registry keys and backs up the Registry in case something goes wrong. It has a straightforward, good-looking interface, which allows beginners to run the program on autopilot while advanced users target specific areas of the Registry. Registry Defender performed well in our tests. Our only major complaint is that you can't group Registry problems by type--a useful feature when you have a lot to review. We weren't big fans of the demo limit, either, which restricts users to fixing 20 keys per session. That's a serious drawback given the number of good, free Registry cleaners available. If you don't mind spending a little, Registry Defender isn't a bad choice, but it's pricey at $29.95, and we'd recommend checking out the freeware alternatives before pulling out your wallet.

    "Only so-so"

    January 01, 2010   |   By raguido

    Version: Registry Defender 6.1.2

    Pros

    Relatively easy to use.

    Cons

    After installation and purchase, several of my software programs were corrupted and had to be reinstalled. I couldn't restore my PC using the restore of the program, so I lost ground on this.

    Summary

    I would look elsewhere for registry cleaners (e.g., Registry Mechanic).

    "Completely useless and a rip-off."

    December 02, 2009   |   By jmdiaz10

    Version: Registry Defender 6.1.2

    Pros

    Nothing. It did not take care of any problems on my PC. A complete waste of money. Very poor customer support as well.

    Cons

    Pop up windows advise you that you need this software, but it is really a scam.

    Summary

    This software was useless and I uninstalled it on the same day that I installed it.

    "Awesome"

    August 13, 2007   |   By sunny27

    Version: Registry Defender 2007 3.1.4

    Pros

    My computer was the absolute worst, it would take forever to do the simplest things and would continually crash. I downloaded the trial and I had so many errors that I just decided to upgrade and buy the full version. Now my computer is working so much better! Get this software, it really works!

    Cons

    Nothing

    Version: Registry Defender 2007 3.1.4

    Pros

    I've been meaning to clean my registry for months. I tried several programs and found Registry Defender the best. You have to upgrade to clean all your errors, but definitely worth it!

    Cons

    None

    "One Click Fix"

    April 17, 2007   |   By mjackson2007

    Version: Registry Defender 1.2.6

    Pros

    My old computer was on it last legs, but Registry Defender really seems to have helped with the errors. It's easy to use and had my computer going again in literally 2 minutes.

    Cons

    Could use more info on some of the advanced features.

    "Dishonest"

    August 12, 2006   |   By gblansten

    Version: Registry Defender 1.2.6

    Pros

    It looks like it will clean your registry properly if you buy the full version.

    Cons

    The publisher's description suggests that this is a 30 day trial of the full version, but this trial only lets you fix 20 registry errors and then begs you to buy the full version. I have no problem with them trying to make money off a decent piece of software, but they need to be honest in their description. It's false advertising.

    "No problems here - Good Program so far"

    July 25, 2006   |   By awa13

    Version: Registry Defender 1.2.6

    Pros

    I'll tell you what I like - despite what everyone is saying about this program's trial version limited error fixing, I have had no such problem. It finds the problems in the registry, then it tells you that it can only fix 20 problems. Well, fix them, close the program, reopen it again, and voila - you now can rescan and it will find your errors again, less the 20 already fixed - and guess what? - Yep, it'll repair ANOTHER 20 errors. Just repeat this process until you are finished. Since it goes in multiples of 20, it's not that time consuming, and, if you are monitoring it, once it reaches 20 found problems, just hit the cancel button, and fix your next set of 20! No big deal for free software, even if it is limited with a trial version. And as far as it adding a value to the start-up, again I say BIG DEAL. Just use your selectiuve startup (MSCONFIG) and prevent it from starting at boot-up.

    Cons

    So far, I can not find one. Maybe the price of full version.

    "lame piece of crippleware"

    March 23, 2006   |   By vanillacokehead

    Version: Registry Defender 1.2.6

    Pros

    Thorough scanning functions.

    Cons

    Too bad this version of the program doesn't permit users to fully act on these scanning functions.

    I wish the product description would have said that this was a stripped-down version and you had to buy the full version to get the full registry cleaning functions. In the free version, it only cleans up 20 errors in the registry. I don't also like how it tried to install a startup task when I closed the program. I uninstalled it after one use.
