Wise Registry Cleaner

CNET 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.

    "Uncovered broken links. Automated clean up worked Well"

    April 4, 2014  |   By easke

    Version: Wise Registry Cleaner 8.03.530

    Pros

    Wise Registry Cleaner found a ton of broken links and other garbage in my registry. I was concerned to have the program clean up all the issues but there was just to many items. Happy to report that after having the program do it's thing, I had no issues. Pretty straight forward UI.

    Cons

    It would be great if the fixes were rated by their critical nature or a summary of why there is an issue in the first place. This is offered in some cases but not all.

    Summary

    Great and simple program that makes cleaning your registry a lot easier without you having to be in IT.

    "Registry cleaners are not necessary at all"

    March 31, 2014  |   By DakotaSpirit

    Version: Wise Registry Cleaner 8.03.530

    Pros

    It works, but be careful, registry cleaners have never proven to make your system faster or anything else. Any computer tech will tell you that, it only makes you feel better.

    Cons

    Can mess up your computer royally, be careful, I do not advice the use of these unless you know exactly what your doing.

    Summary

    Simply put, if you do not understand it, then don't as registry cleaners can make your machine a real disaster..
