Editors' Review

This quick little tool helps clear some Windows Profile problems, but setting functions is best left to experienced users. User Profile Hive Cleanup Service lacks an interface, and running it defaults to a basic function. Changing functions is available only through setting select Windows Registry values.

This tool is for those users suffering from slow shutdowns because of select profile problems. Results depend on the operating system. Before running this app, users are encouraged to read Help file results scenarios. Some profiles may block user log-in after running the app. Experienced users will have no problem adding the simple Registry values to change functions. The other functions compile a problem report or log the call stack.

User Profile Hive Cleanup Service performs a specific fix for a specific problem. Intermediate users may feel comfortable using the program if they're willing to take advantage of the well-written Help file, which does a good job covering the app. Experienced users with profile problems should give this freeware app a look.

"Use it to clear driver or application problems"

September 07, 2008

 |  Version: User Profile Hive Cleanup Service 1.6d

Pros

Easy installation. Low memory usage. Background operation.

Cons

Not a lot. You can uninstall it after running it to clean up the user registry, but it's just as easy to leave it in place.

Summary

Reduced my shut down from more than 5 min to maybe 40 sec.

"Drastically speeds up Win 2000 shutdown"

April 11, 2008  |  By NearlyNormalSteve

 |  Version: User Profile Hive Cleanup Service 1.6d

Pros

My Win2K shutdown time got so slow I often just yanked the plug. After using this the shutdown time is very reasonable. It runs invisibly as the uphclean.exe process. Doesn't use much memory...

Cons

Did not notice any improvement on Windows XP.
