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.

    "The best and safest registry cleaner I have seen"

    May 30, 2014   |   By thos2

    Version: Wise Registry Cleaner 8.12

    Pros

    1) Has three modes of operation depending on your experience and needs.
    2) In normal mode - the one we should all use - it flags possibly unsafe cleans for further investigation before doing anything to them. Also, it gives details of the problem and advises best action.
    3) Reboots when done. I'm surprises CNet flags this as a negative. It is the only way to know the real consequences of any changes to Registry. And, since changes usually lead to the need for at least one more scan, it is vital to reboot before making any more changes.
    4) Is fast and offers defragmentation of registry. I found the latter very safe to use. The PC has markedly snappier responses after this.
    5) Offers comprehensive and automatic backup options so that you can always reverse registry changes if disaster strikes.

    Cons

    None so far

    Summary

    This seems to be a very safe and effective piece of software. Contrary to the views of "experts" in magazines, the Windows Registry is very prone to corruption if you reboot during an apparently stalled software installation, for example. Unless you already have some sort of backup, your best recourse is to programs such as this. In my case, a failed driver install stopped my PC booting properly, although I could always boot on second attempt - boring! After weeks of trial and error, I identified Registry as the only possible problem area I hadn't examined thoroughly and eventually tried the Wise Cleaner. In its deep scan mode (don't use this unless you have some idea how Windows works - more accurately how Windows sometimes fails to work!) the Wise Cleaner suggested changes I would never have discovered myself and they worked - my PC now boots as normal!

    "Good performance !"

    May 30, 2014   |   By haoyanan727

    Version: Wise Registry Cleaner 8.12

    Pros

    After scanning, the registries would be identified to two types, the safe and unsafe to be deleted.Even I regret to delete some registries, they can be restored by clicking "restore" as the registries has been backed up before cleaning.

    Cons

    None found at present.

    Summary

    The favorite registry cleaning program I've experienced. Fairly easy to know how to work, clean my registry entries safely and keep my PC cleaner.
