Editors' Review

+

Wise Registry Cleaner scours your Windows Registry for invalid entries and system-slowing junk. It's safe, easy to use, and (best of all) free. The no-nonsense layout groups all the features you need right where you need them, including Registry Cleaner, System Tuneup, Registry Defrag, and Scheduler.

Pros

Cleans deeply: Wise Registry Cleaner has Normal, Safe, and Deep Scan modes. In our tests, it found and fixed issues that similar freeware missed.

Cleans safely: Wise Registry Cleaner passed the acid test: We did what inexperienced users do and just cleaned everything, but no ill effects ensued.

Lots of tweaks: The System Tuneup optimizes Windows, network settings, and more. Like the cleaning process, they're generally safe, but as with any tool that makes system changes, you should always exercise caution.

All the necessaries at hand: Wise Registry Cleaner has the features we expect to see, such as backup and restore, Exclusion List, Command Line option, and scheduling.

Cons

Baby vs. bathwater: Any Registry cleaner or tweaker can make the wrong changes, if you let it. When in doubt, start small and add tweaks as you go. A bit more background on what each tweak does would help.

Rebooting required: That's not really bad, since a reboot is often needed to change system files in use, and the Registry Defrag requires a reboot, but be aware. It's smart to apply tweaks one by one, if you're not quite sure what each will do.

Bottom Line

We really like Wise Registry Cleaner's businesslike approach to cleaning and tweaking your Windows PC. Regular cleaning and maintenance of the Registry keeps your PC running fast, smoothly, and safely. Wise Registry Cleaner is an excellent choice for the job.

"This is not free"

February 06, 2016  |  By WashandBison

2016-02-06 08:17:01  |  By WashandBison

 |  Version: Wise Registry Cleaner 8.83.563

Pros

Picked up lots of errors by scanning.

Cons

Fixing errors requires payment. You cannot try before you buy.

Summary

I don't like software that you cannot evaluate before buying. Invariably it will not do what you want and then you are faced with trying to get a refund.

October 23, 2015

 |  Version: Wise Registry Cleaner 8.72.559

Pros

- Easy to use
- One-click sollution

Cons

None so far.

Summary

I had some real issues with software. Even Chrome did not work propperly anymore. Tried everything to get it fixed, like deleting software and reinstalling it again, etc. But the issues remain. Finally I used Wise Registry Cleaner and all the problems were solved in a minute!! I could hardly beleive my eyes.

"one of the best free registry cleaner"

July 30, 2015  |  By shuijigood

2015-07-30 00:26:25  |  By shuijigood

 |  Version: Wise Registry Cleaner 8.65.555

Pros

Some big pluses for Wise's free registry cleaner include fast registry scans, scheduled scans, in place updates, and a clear separation between normal issues and those that are "unsafe," a feature I loved.

Cons

I don't like the fact that Wise Registry Cleaner pushes for a download of Wise Disk Cleaner at the end of the installation but it's easy to skip.

"Almost made me reformat"

April 18, 2015  |  By cyburg1

2015-04-18 14:01:48  |  By cyburg1

 |  Version: Wise Registry Cleaner 8.42.546

Pros

There is a low chance it might fix something but theres a big risk your taking.

Cons

Almost screwed up my pc completely! Luckily i could fix it but if i couldn't i would have to reformat! It does more damage then fixes!

Summary

NEVER USE A REGISTRY CLEANER! I'm not blaming it on wise cleaner company i'm just saying any registry cleaner is bad unless its made by microsoft! It will do more damage than fixing! If you use ccleaner or clean master or any program that has a registry fix/clean option just disable it!

"Not sure yet.."

December 24, 2014

2014-12-24 11:15:15

 |  Version: Wise Registry Cleaner 8.26

Pros

It did what it was suppose to do, but now I have to wait and see if things run as they should or if more different errors will pop up.

Cons

It Installed Pro PC-Cleaner which by the way, you have to pay to use, but WRC was free to use. Also, be sure to uncheck all the Yahoo homepage, toolbar BS..

Summary

I'll come back and give another review as I experience good or bad behavior.. I'm running 8.1 and was getting the message Bad Pool Header and once in a while would reboot by itself for no reason. We'll see if this will help or not. Always back up your registry before any program makes a change like this one.. so far, so goo.

"Great program"

October 26, 2014  |  By Dave8646

2014-10-26 16:58:38  |  By Dave8646

 |  Version: Wise Registry Cleaner 8.23

Pros

Ease of use, it tells what`s safe to get rid of, or what isn`t until you say yes.

Cons

None yet, and don`t expect to find any faults as I`ve used it before.

Summary

Had this program ages ago and since upgrading PC`s over the years lost it, but for me the best Reg cleaner about. Works a treat, it`s free and gives you options to play with instead of losing all your info in one go,,,,,,,got nothng but praise for it,,,,get it and sort your PC`s problems out in seconds.

"Not free!!!"

October 15, 2014  |  By otto12

2014-10-15 10:09:03  |  By otto12

 |  Version: Wise Registry Cleaner 8.23

Pros

I have nothing to say positive because I did not buy into it.

Cons

Although it says 100% free it does nothing until you buy, or so I think. I didn't buy.

Summary

I don't like any thing that says free and then won't really work until you buy.

"Greatly reduced the time it takes to open programs!"

 |  Version: Wise Registry Cleaner 8.22

Pros

Wise Registry Cleaner was easy to install, streamlined my registry, improved boot-up time and greatly reduced the time it takes to open programs.

Cons

None so far.

Summary

25AUG2014

Wise Registry Editor prevented me from going out and buying a new desktop system, saving me $$$!!!

I have a quad-core Win7 32-bit (thus limited to 4Gb or RAM) desktop system with 1GB video RAM and 4Tb of internal hard drive space.

Despite taking precautions like running Kaspersky Internet Security, my desktop system was taking 30 seconds or more to open MS Word 2010, or ThumbsPlus v9, and nearly 2 minutes to open Adobe CC Photoshop.

Since running Wise Registry Cleaner, MS Word 2010 opens in 4 seconds, ThumbsPlus v9 in about 10 seconds, and Adobe CC PhotoShop in about 35 seconds...12 seconds after it has been opened once, likely due to pre-fetching).

As a power-user taxing my system with Adobe CC (PhotoShop, Adobe Premier Video Editor), database creation/management, etc., I was considering buying a new desktop system. I find that since the Windoze OS (with DirectX solving many previous sound/video card issues) and hardware architecture has matured, I am no longer a slave to the 2-year computer replacement syndrome (new OS or PC game requires more RAM/video RAM..which requires new power supply, which ultimately requires a new system...etc.).

Updated on Aug 26, 2014

I forgot to mention that my desktop system is about 7 years old....due to maturity of Windoze, DirectX, and hardware architecture, replacing a computer every 2-3 years does not seem necessary any longer.
