Editors' review

Registry Repair can quickly scan your Registry for errors that could potentially slow down your computer, and then remove them to improve operating efficiency. The program begins to scan as soon as you open it, and it presents results clearly so you can decide what action you'd like to take.

Pros

Fixing options: Once a scan is complete, you can see the errors the program has identified grouped by category in the main viewing window. Clicking on one of these categories will expand it to show a detailed list of the individual issues, and both single items or entire categories can be selected or deselected for fixing.

Speedy operations: Both scans and repairs are completed quickly in this program. There is also a clear progress bar to let you know exactly where you stand as the app is working.

Cons

Multiple scans needed: During testing it took four scans completed back-to-back to finally get a scan to return with no errors to report. While the first scan found more than 200 errors and the next one had that total down to five, it still took several additional scans to get rid of those final five, which seems a bit excessive.

Bottom Line

Registry Repair is a handy utility that can improve your computer's overall operating speed efficiently. It's not the most feature-packed program you'll find, and it can take multiple scans to remove all errors, but it still gets the job done for free and in a relatively short amount of time.

    "FREE?!?!! STOP THE MADNESS!"

    August 30, 2013   |   By vegasedge1313

    Version: Glary Registry Repair 3.3.0.852

    Pros

    I'm sure it's great software, but I am not gonna shell out $40 to find out.....yeah, I added a penny....sorry, I meant $39.99..give me a break

    Cons

    Everything. How can I know what the pro's or con's are. Let me have the software for a 7 or 10 day trial at least, find out if it's worth a s___, then if I like it, I'll buy the damn thing.

    Summary

    WHat happened to the days when CNET really gave free software?!?!
    I miss those days, and if they had any sense they would go back to offering at least free trials. They are losing more money than they are making with this ridiculous free download, tell you your computer has 18,693 registry problems, not to mention another 648 Internet Security issues, etc., etc. We get it! We know we have issues, we don't want your free version to fix 1.2% of them, give us wood, and make us pull out our credit card. Anybody who does is an idiot.
    That's my two cents.
    And, if your smart and you are able to read this before CNET and their advertiser's pull my notes, you will close out of this window, and get free software where free means free. Use your search engines, grow a brain....there really is free software out there.....and it may not be 100% on the up and up but either is life!!

    "Not good at all"

    June 23, 2013   |   By jrdramey

    Version: Glary Registry Repair 4.1.0.388

    Pros

    It sure found a lot of errors...

    Cons

    See below for explanation.

    Summary

    ...whether or not it fixed those errors properly is up for debate. It seems to have made my machine even less efficient. Shutdown and startup are painfully slow upon restart. CAD/CAM/CAE software takes long enough as it is to get going, but I guess I just discovered a new definition of slow. It deleted the shortcut icons for AutoDesk Inventor; the startup menu still shows the program folder, but I haven't yet checked to make sure it still works. No improvement.

    "Highly cnet-rated, easy to use."

    March 02, 2013   |   By altdoc

    Version: Glary Registry Repair 4.1.0.388

    Pros

    Free and according to cnet one of the best on the market.

    Cons

    I haven't found any but I'm no geek.

    Summary

    I can recommend this program based on my own limited experience, but if problems arise I'll switch to another c-net recommendation.

    "Plan on being HIJACKED"

    February 26, 2013   |   By Testrun2013

    Version: Glarysoft Registry Repair 2.4

    Pros

    Easy download.

    Cons

    isearch.glarysoft.com becomes the default search page for internet explorer and firefox. Plan to reset explorer and lose your personal settings and uninstall/reinstall firefox and lose your personal settings to get rid of it. Simply uninstalling Glarysoft does not work. THIS IS A REDIRECT BROWSER SOFTWARE.

    Summary

    AVOID IT as it intends to be a KEEPER likely for the wrong reasons. Use CCCleaner if you need a registry and temporary files cleaner.

    Version: Glary Registry Repair 4.1.0.388

    Pros

    Does a quick scan and finds problems

    Cons

    You can only use the quick scan in the free version. To use the other facilities you need to buy the pro version.This is not mentioned in the Cnet review.

    "FANTASTIC !!!!!"

    June 12, 2012   |   By Zillandia

    Version: Glary Registry Repair 4.1.0.388

    Pros

    Glary Registry Repair performs in a way that others don't.
    I have used a great many well known Registry cleaners before. They all claim to increase system performance. They NEVER do, much like all the hard drive Defrags out there NEVER make your system ANY faster.
    However, Glary Registry defrag made all of my programs that took too long to launch pop rather than sit and spin. Glary knows things others do not and they build it into their software.
    My computer experience dates back to the 1980's. Sys:Windows7/64bit

    Cons

    None At all

    Summary

    If your programs don't launch faster after using this it may not be due to registry problems.
