Editors' Review

+
This utility includes everything needed to cure the Windows Registry: the search and repair (or deletion) of invalid entries, detection of Trojan horses, and backup and restoration functionality. Since registry errors often result from the movement of files, Registry Medic offers to search disks for moved files and fix invalid entries. Unfortunately, the trial version only fixes the first five errors, which is insufficient to fully evaluate the program capabilities. Registry Medic copes with junk entries left by uninstalled programs, too, and you can configure the program to skip entries linking to removable media (floppy disks and CDs) or any other files or folders. To fully safeguard your registry, you can back it up automatically, even every minute. The program's main flaw is its interface, which is inconvenient for viewing several hundred entries. Still, power users may really dig the tools Registry Medic provides.

"Not for Windows 7"

October 24, 2013  |  By Canuck94

 |  Version: Registry Medic 5

Pros

• Cleaned system and sped it up when I was running Windows 98
• Cleaned system and sped it up when I was running Windows XP

Cons

• Did not achieve desired results with cleaning Windows 7 problem
• Submission of support Web form generates an error message
• E-mails to info@iomatic.com and to support@iomatic.com (the first a blind attempt, but the latter e-address provided within the software) both bounced
• No apparent means of contacting the firm or obtaining support

Summary

Note that the C-Net description above lists Windows NT/98/Me/2000/XP/Vista, but neither Windows 7 nor 8. I didn't see any such limitation on Iomatic's Web site, so I purchased it (and SystemMedic) in October 2013 based on previous success with earlier use for Windows 98 and Windows XP. With those operating systems, the product worked as described, eliminating some problems that had prompted my purchase. Plus, I never ran into any of the described problems with credit card charges.
However, it has not corrected the issue I am having with an application affecting Windows 7. Worse, one of the Iomatic applications has messed up my Corel PDF Fusion so that I can no longer "Print" to PDF Fusion. (i.e. previously if I chose Corel PDF Fusion from my printer list, the software would convert the print job to a PDF file and then ask me where to save it. Now it appears to be converting it to the PDF file, but then nothing—doesn't ask me where I want it saved, and doesn't save it to any default location.)
Also, the RegistryMedic is still the 2008 release, which I already had and which would explain why it is no good for Windows 7. It looks as though Iomatic is no longer in the software business, but someone is maintaining the old Web site and profiting off sales of an obsolete product.

"Purchased key for Registry Medic did not work"

September 20, 2008  |  By oloughlinant

 |  Version: Registry Medic 5

Pros

Nothing to say as it did not work

Cons

I paid and received a key for Registry Medic but the key was for an old version that was no longer available. Despite emails for help over several months, there has been no response.
So, I've lost my $US30 and am pissed off.

Summary

Is Registry Medic a sham organisation? They must be making money for providing no software.

"IOMATIC DO NOT PURCHASE SREAD THE WORD"

August 07, 2008  |  By Slimsodey

 |  Version: Registry Medic 5

Pros

Trial version is great ... That is great to suck you in so that you will purchase.

Cons

Your are fore warned. Absolutely NO customer support. I have tried emailing Iomatic (too many times to count - actually over 100 times!) and received only an automated "noreply" response. To my knowledge there is NO phone number to contact Iomatic. Laura at Emetrix (the billing company used by Iomatic) assured me that my account would be reimbursed. I did download the software but the user ID and code key did not work. A simple problem to fix but good luck trying to contact Iomatic. Laura at Emetrix said Iomatic is one of their biggest customers but she did not have a contact phone number for their client (go figure???) Too bad that I had to give Iomatic ONE star they DON'T even deserve that. Way to go Iomatic your customer service SUCKS.
