Editors' Review

+

This program provides utilities to quickly tidy up your Registry, but lacks some features of competing applications. Wise Registry Cleaner 3 Free has an intuitive interface and is relatively easy to use.

The program works quickly, using very few of the computer's resources. This cleanup tool offers an undo option, which is important any time you deal with the Registry. Users can even set the program to check the Registry automatically, although there is no option to set a specific time for this function. One feature this program lacks is a severity level warning. A harmless entry from a deleted program is shown as having no distinct differences from an entry from a harmful virus or malware. It does have easy-to-understand graphic warnings for any entry that may be dangerous to delete, though.

It also would be nice if users were offered the option to select/deselect all, since there may be dozens of entries but only be one or two severe issues in the Registry. Still, this freeware Registry cleaner proved effective, and we recommend it for users comfortable working with the registry.

May 21, 2009  |  By stitches53

 |  Version: Wise Registry Cleaner 4.31

Pros

FREE FREE FREE

Cons

None that I can see.

Summary

It does what it is suppose to do and it is free. For those of us that are older and live on limited income it is the ideal product. What more could you ask for???

Updated on May 21, 2009

Even good for novice users. I was always scared to use a program such as this for fear I would have problems and delete things that shouldn't be deleted but it is an amazing program and had no problems what so ever!

"Safe and reliable"

May 09, 2009  |  By pdas3

 |  Version: Wise Registry Cleaner 4.31

Pros

I have used this multiple times with no untoward results occuring. The fact that it does not muck up system is of paramount importance.

Cons

Some files defy deletion. I do not know why.

Summary

I do use this product blindly. If I run into trouble, I am not entirely sure I can extricate myself unaided. It hasn't happened yet and I hope it never does.

"Good, not great"

May 07, 2009  |  By Jim1900

 |  Version: Wise Registry Cleaner 4.31

Pros

This is one of the better registry cleaners in being reasonably thorough, though I don't think it yet gets at the 64-bit entries in the Vista x64 registry. But it does the 32-bit portion well enough.

Cons

Occasionally it will remove an entry that will cause a problem if I remove some of the "unsafe" (amber) ones. It is easy enough to exclude that entry the next time around. I have never had a problem when removing only the "safe" (green) entries.

Summary

A good auxiliary cleaner, though I use CCleaner, and more importantly JV16 PowerTools 2009 for additional cleaning. The latter is just now coming out with a true 64-bit version.
