Editors' Review

+

Windows 7 Manager is an all-in-one system cleaner, tweaker, and maintenance tool that, among other capabilities, incorporates a wide range of "fixes," many of them built into Windows, yet tucked away in odd corners that make them difficult for ordinary users to access. That's sometimes because inexperienced users who misuse a fix or a tweak can cause more problems than they started with. Windows 7 Manager is a good example: It probably packs more features than any tool of its type we've seen thus far. Yet with so many things to run, inexperienced users can end up "fixing" their systems for good. Used carefully and regularly, though, Windows 7 Manager has much to recommend it. It's shareware that's free to try for 15 days.

A nag screen counting down the 15-day trial is the only inconvenience we encountered when we opened Windows 7 Manager for the first time. As with similar tools, Windows 7 Manager starts by creating an (optional) System Restore Point and scanning your system. Windows 7 Manager uses a series of separate windows for each tool, each displaying a lot of information, and sometimes too much, such as the tree view displaying the Process Manager's scan results, which is quite detailed but a bit overwhelming. But there's no doubt that this program's individual tools tend to offer more in terms of features, options, and capabilities than their freeware counterparts. Windows 7 Manager divides its features into broad categories: Information, Optimizer, Cleaner, Customization, Security, Network, and Misc. Utilities. There's too much to summarize, but some standouts include the ability to enable AHCI on existing systems (handy if you want to boot from an SSD) and an Optimization Wizard that walks users through a variety of tweaks.

One thing, though: The Registry Optimizer tool froze our system twice on the Analyze phase. Our test system goes boldly where yours should tread carefully, though. Likewise one of Windows 7 Manager's best features, easy access to built-in system restoratives, should be used with care and only to shoot actual trouble (don't go looking for it!). We suggest trying Windows 7 Manager for yourself (carefully) to see if this extensive array of system tools is for you.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Windows 7 Manager 4.2.4.

"Well Worth the Price"

October 12, 2014  |  By shodan816

 |  Version: Windows 7 Manager 4.4.9

Pros

I have been using this great software for several years now and it just keeps getting better and better. There are literally hundreds ot tweaks and adjustments you can do to your system, and of course, you have the ability to "undo" them, as well. I use the registry backup utility every day and it has saved me from having to do a complete reinstall on several occasions. Download the trial and see for yourself!

Cons

None that I can think of.

Summary

A fantastic piece of software at a reasonable price. Try it!

"Absolute best software to fix Microsoft errors"

September 09, 2014  |  By goldenginza

 |  Version: Windows 7 Manager 4.4.3

Pros

Do not be penny wise and pound foolish, purchased Windows 7 Manager today. This software is state of the art technology that is light years ahead of any other similar software that can find, system errors, registry errors, and optimize your system as claimed. This software accomplished for me what Microsoft was unable even come close to resolving a software problem over one year.

Windows 7 Manager was able to direct me to the exact Microsoft problems, "Microsoft Visual C+ C+ Redistribution 2008 and 2010 that was preventing some of my software downloads install due to perimeter errors. With this information I was able to uninstall and reinstall the correct Microsoft download software. (The problem was resolved). If I only knew about this program over one year ago, the problem would have been resolved and Jet Cleaner and Update Checker would have been installed.
I am a certified beta tester for just about all security software, registry repair/cleaner and optimization soft

Cons

None work 100% plus as described by the publisher. Plus download 100% clean with no bundled, toolbars, malware, adware or PUP embedded.

Summary

This is software that was written to perfection. Performs as claims and best of all is downloaded free of any embedded, toolbars, malware, adware or PUP.

"It's One of the Best"

January 11, 2013  |  By shodan816

 |  Version: Windows 7 Manager 4.1.9

Pros

At least a couple of people have rated this multi-faceted utility poorly and said that those of us who like it surely don't know what we're talking about. Well, I've been in the computer business since the '60s in everything from maintenance to Support Manager at Microsoft, so I would suggest it is they who need to take a second look. This tool has tons of utilities and tweaks, far too numerous to list here, and a registry backup utility that I use daily because I find it more reliable that Microsoft's own. Seriously, give it a try.

Cons

I agree with not running registry defrag as one user suggests. Other than that, it's simeply a great bunch of tools and tweaks rolled into a single utility.

Summary

You really have nothing to lose by trying it. Backup first, so you can always go back if you don't like it. My guess is that you won't be going back. I've been using it for at least 4 or 5 years now.

Updated on Aug 8, 2013

This utility just keeps getting better and better. I use it to make daily registry backups and it has come to my rescue on many occasions. It is surely one of the best tools of all I have on my PC.

"A GREAT Windows Utility"

July 14, 2012  |  By shodan816

 |  Version: Windows 7 Manager 4.0.9

Pros

I have been using Windows 7 manager for a long time, and prior to that, Windows Vista Manager. This utility has many, many custom Windows settings, tuning utilities and backup features. I backup my system registry daily with Windows 7 Manager and have used it to restore my registry many times. It works flawlessly.

Cons

None that I have found. It has NEVER caused me to lose data or cause any files to be deleted accidentally.

Summary

This is one great system utility. Well worth the price and I recommend it highly.

"Horrible just like EVERY other one."

March 04, 2012  |  By peptobismal88

 |  Version: Windows 7 Manager 4.0.1

Pros

Personally, nothing.

Cons

Slow GUI.
Automated Registry Cleaner.
Registry Defragger.
Disk Clean up.
Whatever else.

Summary

Okay, everyone on here that seems to rate these things doesn't really know what they are talking about. I was directed here from a forum post while tweaking my registry manually.

I did the dumb thing of downloading this and allowing it to do nothing but file extensions, not touching DLLs or system files. After install things on the computer were running horribly slow. Start up is crap, etc.

Fact of the matter is DO NOT EVER DEFRAG or "OPTIMIZE" your registry with a program! There are EXTREMELY dangerous things to mess with. So, if you're not willing to get your hands dipped into the registry leave it alone.

Any/Every automated registry cleaner IS BAD! May not be the first run or second, but trust me you are causing more damage to your operating system and things will get worse and worse over time.

"Not recommended"

January 14, 2012  |  By Zentie

 |  Version: Windows 7 Manager 3.0.7

Pros

Probably something, but never checked it out.

Cons

The fact that you have to pay for a program to keep software, which you have already paid for some exorbitant amount, acting sanely.

Summary

Will not buy or recommend, unless a version with less bells and whistles is made available.
