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Removed about a dozen out-of-date registry entries but not the one causing problems (expired Microsoft installer file.msi security certificate).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

March 24, 2012  |  By caballero58

 |  Version: TweakNow RegCleaner 2011 6.4.5

Pros

I really did not get to try it? but I look forward to using it soon I want to have the time to learn it well. and I have looked at 'Cnet downloads' reviews and I think it will speed up my computers registry? keep your fingers crossed or give it a try...I's like squeesing fruit check it out the amount of downloads,radings from customers and editore which is large and very up to date. ? and free

Cons

The negative aspect is not having used TweekNow RegCleaner 2011. No, is not them but me I have had a lot of traveling lately, But if I do I'm sure letting then know would allow them to fix what ever? Man, would'nt that be a useful tool !!

"Free Utility that seemed to work"

February 10, 2012  |  By jamesmevans

 |  Version: TweakNow RegCleaner 2011 6.4.5

Pros

I'm not an expert on the subject of the Registry so consider that when reading this review. Program installed and ran without a hitch on my Windows XP SP3 and Windows 7 machines. Hard to tell if it made much a difference.

Cons

None that I could find.

"Good software but be careful"

January 19, 2012  |  By manikese

 |  Version: TweakNow RegCleaner 4.7.1

Pros

Cleans the registry and unused applications. Improves speed of machine.

Cons

Great application, however when I downloaded and ran my computer started broadcasting. Just make sure you scan this first.

"Does everything Toniarts easyclean used to and more"

November 18, 2011  |  By nsaintj

 |  Version: TweakNow RegCleaner 2011 6.4.5

Pros

This is one of the simpliest ways to keep your computer running smoothly. The interface is easy to use and the program runs fast and clean. What an improvement from their earlier version.

Cons

It won't walk my dog.

Summary

Toniarts easyclean was my go to program to keep my registry clean as well as optimize my system. It won't run with Windows7 (which I now have) so I tried Tweaknow's new version and it's terrific. I doubt if money can buy a better way to clean up the mess on your hard drive and keep it running well. I'm extremely satisfied. Remember, it's always good to have more than one program watching over your machine, (I run Avast AND Norton) since some programs pick up things that others may miss (I used to run tweaknow AFTER I cleaned the registry with easycleaner, and it always found something easycleaner missed), but Tweaknow is now my first action when I do my weekly cleanup on my hard drive. Highly reccomended.
