Only a few limitations distract users from fully testing this simple Windows Registry utility suite, but you will get, for good or bad, more than you bargained for when you install it. Registry Defragmentation is only one of the programs bundled in with Registry Toolkit for Windows 95-XP, and you can't choose which to install. The suite feels kludged together and without consistency. From the main menu, you click either once or twice to reach a utility. Program documentation is freestanding, and not available from the program menu.
Registry Defragmentation is the primary function in the suite, and gives the best feedback. Operation is simple as you merely check the Registry Hives you want to defrag and press Go. The program creates a map of the current state of the Registry, but doesn't display it until after defragging the Registry. The program also finds and removes unused Registry entries, but doesn't offer users the chance to see or save any of the entries. The System Backup and Registry Backup functions are straightforward; click and save. However, the System Backup configuration contains instruction errors and the Registry Backup demo is limited to select Hives. A schedule function is easily configured to run the defrag tool, Registry backup and restore functions.
Our testers complained the Help button is opens the online advertisement for the product instead of the local Help file. Nevertheless, this 21-day demo accomplishes its goals with a minimum of fuss and is easily operated by any level user.
Registry Defragmentation is a small utility that does gigantic improvements in computer performance. Registry is the core of any operating system and it is the proper functioning registry that determines how fast the computer boots up, launches applications and carries out commands. This application physically defragments the Windows registry file to give it the proper linear structure. Registry Defragmentation is an absolutely essential tool for all folks who install/uninstall new software applications frequently. It often happens that uninstalling an application does not completely remove all program components. These components start hindering the computer performance, consuming system resources that should be allocated otherwise.
