Editors' Review

+

This excellent freeware utility makes the potentially daunting prospect of cleaning your Windows Registry safe and simple. The interface is spare and straightforward, and most users will probably only need the Scan and Remove buttons.

The settings are configured for immediate use, although you may exclude some Registry branches and references to removable drives from the scan. The default Beginner mode only displays items marked safe to remove, and the Expert mode makes clear which ones aren't. In case something goes wrong after deletion, you can quickly restore the removed keys.

In our tests, the utility found and removed hundreds of junk entries in minutes, making it a worthy download for almost any home user, especially those who are less technically inclined.

    "Really messed up my PC"

    May 25, 2013   |   By lspaiser

    Version: TweakNow RegCleaner 2012 7.2.1

    Pros

    There are no pros

    Cons

    Stopped my PC from being able to turn off under WIN control
    Restore didn't work

    Summary

    Make a full system backup before trying this software. Better still, don't try it.

    "Loads computer with crapware and doesn't work"

    November 24, 2012   |   By A_Santa_Barbara

    Version: TweakNow RegCleaner 2012 7.2.1

    Pros

    Removed about a dozen out-of-date registry entries but not the one causing problems (expired Microsoft installer file.msi security certificate).

    Cons

    Installed smiley crapware, changed default searches and installed Funmoods Toolbar in all three web browsers (Internet Explorer 9, Firefox and Google Chrome). Took me several hours to uninstall them all, clean and restore normal operation.

    Summary

    CNET review from 2008 needs to be updated because the 2012 version of this program is rubbish; seek something better!
