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.

"Basic, seems safe"

March 14, 2009  |  By blancheirving

 |  Version: TweakNow RegCleaner Standard 3.0.1

Pros

Nice looking interface. Simple even in expert mode. Has the basic features I think are necessary, especially the ability to restore in case of a mistake. Over the few weeks it's been used, I haven't seen it misstep, i.e., require any restoration.

Cons

Scan is so fast, it may not really be as deep as others (I run a few reg cleaners in each routine cleanup). Its list of scanned areas looks shorter than Wise Registry Cleaner's, for example. Also: navigating TweakNow's UI generates too many windows.

Summary

Nice but very basic registry cleaner. Seems trustworthy; on the other hand perhaps not as robust as one might need. I find myself wondering "Is that it?" when it's finished. Caveat: while I perceive Wise Registry Cleaner to be more thorough (and still safe enough), that program has its own minuses. For one, Wise seems to issue another version every few days - pesky. And there are functional annoyances in Wise that this simpler TweakNow tool does not have. I say, use both.

"It is good but basic !"

December 12, 2008  |  By deoquixxx

 |  Version: TweakNow RegCleaner Standard 3.0.1

Pros

I have used it and I am satisfied. After the first time you use it, where it finds many errors, later you can note that it does not have many sense to run it frequently because does not find anything. It can help you, but it depends of you how often

Cons

Can it clean all the registry ? I have some doubts.

Summary

You can trust it because it is safe and works well. It can help you to clean your windows registry since one software it is not enough.
