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.

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

    August 25, 2014   |   By craig.knapp1

    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.
