    "The best thing is that it's free. Skip this One at this time."

    Version: TweakNow RegCleaner 2.6.9

    Pros

    The fact that it is free to use. The free version is educational. That is it. I think I am being very generous.

    Cons

    It's a commom to get you to purchase their other more effective product. Shame!

    I've recently downloaded this program, and, doing the scan, the speed to do some stuff got better. Yeah, it works... I highly recommend to download this product.

    "Nice cleaner"

    March 29, 2006  |   By sassy19a

    Version: TweakNow RegCleaner 2.6.9

    Pros

    The best part about this is it classifies its hits to safe to delete and not safe to delete. Not in WinASO, another of my fav. This really makes me press the delete button in ease.

    "Good, But could be much better..."

    March 25, 2006  |   By SkyWlf77

    Version: TweakNow RegCleaner 2.6.9

    Pros

    Very easy to use program for those that aren't technically inclined. Scan is fast and rarely tells you to delete entries that you actually need. This will speed up your computer but see below...

    Cons

    Scan is nowhere near thorough enough. While removing some unnecessary registry entries, it leaves many behind that should be deleted. This scan found 43 unnecessary entries in my system, but there were actually over 170 according to Registry Mechanic. While it's a decent program for no cost, the price of Registry Mechanic is well worth it...You get what you pay for.

    "Excellent programme"

    March 23, 2006  |   By Maidenmaniac00

    Version: TweakNow RegCleaner 2.6.9

    Pros

    Excellent programme for deleting invalid registry values. Virtually everything it tells you is safe to delete, is safe to delete. and even if it does tell you to delete something which you need, its easy to get back seeing as it backs up everything you get rid of automatically.

    Boosts computer performance significantly. and above all, it's free!

    Cons

    Sometimes the registry values it detects as invalid are blatantly not invalid. But this is a very small problem so long as you read through the files it's detected first.

    "Used to be my favorite until it flagged the wrong reg entries"

    March 21, 2006  |   By lansharked

    Version: TweakNow RegCleaner 2.6.9

    Pros

    I have to admit to using it consistently for years (until it finally flagged something as 'safe to delete' that wasn't). Good interface, runs fast, and is stable. It was very hard to stop using it, as it had been one of my freeware favorites for a very long time.

    Cons

    Well, it worked for me until I switched from HP to Brother networked printers and multifunction devices. Right after doing a on original-CD install of a Brother 7820N MFC Laser printer/scanner/etc, it flagged pretty much the entire group of Brother installation keys as 'safe to delete'. As it had never given me false positives before, I went ahead and deleted the 4 dozen or so objects and the printer immediately stopped working. After a full uninstall and reinstall, the printer worked again and RegCleaner found the same 4 dozen Brother keys to delete. I then went looking for a registry cleaning alternative, and had to look beyond download.com. I finally found my current favorite, ToniArts' EasyCleaner (2.0.6.380), which found lots of stuff TweakNow RegCleaner hadn't, and DIDN'T flag the Brother Printer's registry keys. (It's working great for me 4 weeks, 9 computers, and dozens of scans later.) BTW, I use Easy Cleaner as one of 11 antivirus/antispyware/cleanup applications I recommend:

    Microsoft AntiSpyware Beta1 (last one was v1.0.701)

    Ad-Aware SE Personal (currently v1.06r1)

    Spybot Search and Destroy (currently v1.4)

    Sygate Personal Firewall (currently v5.6 build 2808)

    Easy Cleaner (by ToniArts) (currently v2.6.7)

    Bazooka Adware and Spyware Scanner (currently v1.13.03)

    X-RayPC (currently v1.001),

    System Spyware Interrogator (currently v1.3.67)

    Spyware Terminator (currently v1.2.00.544).

    HijackThis (currently v2.00)

    Symantec AntiVirus Corporate Edition (mine is v8.1) or

    AVG Anti-Virus Professional (currently v7.1.362)

    "Doesn't get the job done"

    March 19, 2006  |   By MetsBeliever

    Version: TweakNow RegCleaner 2.6.9

    Pros

    The program has an easy to use interface, scans very quickly and categorizes problems by deletion safety level. The program also has beginner and advanced user modes. It is set up very well for the novice user and gives some versatility to the more advanced user.

    The biggest pro to this program is that it is free and has no spyware/adware attached to it. There aren’t many free programs that scan and clean your registry.

    READ THE CONS BEFORE DOWNLOADING!

    Cons

    Let me start off by saying this program doesn't nearly get the job done, and is designed for the purpose of being a "teaser" program to get you to purchase their professional version (which isn't all that good itself)

    The programs scanning engine is designed to only pickup about 10-20% of the average users registry problems. For those of you who are novices, that not much at all. Basically even after scanning and cleaning with this program there will still be ALOT of invalid entries your registry.

    What really bothers me about this program is that it doesn’t tell you this up front. If you go to their website, click on products and then click view details on the professional version, at the bottom of the page with an asterisk it says "The professional registry scan engine should be able to find up to 900% more invalid entries then the standard version."

    The truth is that their "professional" version doesn’t really standup well versus Registry Mechanic which you can get for a few dollars more.

    Basically, this entire program will clean a SMALL portion of your registry, while deceptively giving you the impression it's completely clean. I feel bad for the over 1 million people who have downloaded this and believe their registries are clean. As I said, don’t take my word for it, check their own website as I described above.
