Editors' Review

Registry optimizing tools tend to fall into two categories: those that defragment the registry by removing blank spaces and those that make changes to the registry, deleting unnecessary, invalid, or problematic entries. Registry Life from ChemTable Software combines both in one free application. Like other registry cleaners, Registry Life is best used with caution. It's much more forgiving than most such tools, though. Used wisely, it can keep your system working smoothly.

Registry Life's interface sports two main items, Registry Logical Structure and Registry Physical Structure, and a menu of basic controls and settings in the left-hand panel. Pop-up dialogs handle operations and display scan results; most offer an Advanced User option that lists results in detail. We install and remove a lot of software on our test machines, so there's always plenty for a registry cleaner to do. The Registry Cleanup tool quickly found 275 problem entries, mostly nonexistent references, useless keys, and invalid entries. We saved the scan results as a text file, a recommended step that Registry Life makes easy. The cleanup scan tagged nothing critical, so we clicked OK. The software cleaned the registry in about a second, simultaneously creating a backup file--a thoughtful touch. The registry optimization tool is a bit more vigorous, requiring you to close all applications, disable your antivirus software, and reboot the system when it's finished. Nevertheless, the process took mere minutes and reclaimed significant space on the registry, resulting in a quicker boot-up. More importantly, it caused no problems, at least no obvious ones.

While any software that modifies the registry demands caution, Registry Life seems less prone to include valid entries in its scans in the first place. It's freeware that outperforms costly tools, so it's definitely worth a look.

"Better interface than Glary Utilities."

April 13, 2013  |  By Gigabyte11

 |  Version: Registry Life 1.51

Pros

Easy scan and repair. Seems to consider more criteria.

Cons

I found none.

Summary

Program scanned, repaired, and then a week later, I ran the program, and it said that a recent optimization had been performed, and that it was not necessary at this time.

"Wow, Some People Need To Pay Attention When Installing!"

August 05, 2011  |  By DBone20

 |  Version: Registry Life 1.31

Pros

It found 156 items that CCleaner and Auslogics both missed. Out of the 156 items I found 151 that I knew were obsolete software references, the other 5 I wan't sure about so I added them to the ignore list.

Cons

None. The program does what it says it will.

Summary

This little known program does what it says. If found a crap load of entries that others missed. It also defragged and compressed the registry as well.........All of the people crying about malware (lol) and crapware just installed this program without READING the installer. I suggest using the custom install feature on this, AND ALL, software installations. Take your time and read!!

Free software has to generate $ somehow, so most of them partner up with someone and try to install a new search engine, or toolbar, ect....

Always do a custom install!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"A bit dangerous and installs crapware"

February 07, 2011  |  By WEA76

 |  Version: Registry Life 1.26

Pros

The registry defragger seemed to work fine.

Cons

Registry optimizer suggested several entries for deletion which appeared to be incorrect.

Also popped up a window saying "do you agree". I hit yes before reading and it installed an annoying browser extension which becomes default search provider.

Summary

Use Auslogics for the registry optimization and use this for the registry defrag afterwards.

Updated on Feb 7, 2011

I'd like to update this review to 1 star.

The spyware they installed was not removed by doing an uninstall. In addition, each browser had to have add-ins removed manually, then each browser had to have the default search provider manually set back to what I wanted it, instead of Facemoods.com, then I had to do a search and find out that to set Firefox's default keyword search back I had to go to About:config search for facemoods, reset to default values, then find out how to actually make the google search work again.

Annoying.

Also, my sound card no longer functions. This is bad software and should be removed from download.com
