Editors' Review

+

The Windows registry is often considered forbidden territory for newbies. Only the most experienced users are encouraged to peer into its contents. Wise Registry Cleaner claims to offer a tool that even the least experienced can use without fear of wreaking havoc upon their computer. While the tool is indeed easy to use, it doesn't offer anything extra to help put new users at ease with their registry.

Wise Registry Cleaner presents a simple, easy-to-understand interface with three tabs at the top that walk you through its cleaning features. We started with the program's main selling point, its Registry Cleaner. Our first scan uncovered 412 registry issues, with six deemed unsafe. We did like that it offers a breakdown of the scan results before any action is taken, allowing you to manually select which keys you want fix instead of leaving it up to the program. What we didn't like was that it didn't ask us if we wanted to create a backup of our registry before moving forward. This is imperative for all users in case a registry key is deleted by mistake. The program does include a Backup feature that lets you create a system restore point and a full backup, but it's up to you to do it first.

Once we had made our selections, we clicked the Start Cleaning button, and in literally a second, the program came back claiming that all but four issues were resolved. For those of us who are forgetful about regular PC maintenance, Wise lets you schedule regular registry scans so that you don't have to remember. As a bonus, the program includes a System Tuneup feature that offers to improve bootup and shutdown speeds; we found that it worked. The Registry Defrag also lived up to its promise of tidying up our registry to improve our computer's performance. An ample online help feature is available, though we think that most users won't need to use it for basic cleanups.

Wise Registry Cleaner installs and uninstalls without any issues. We still don't recommend that new users poke around in their registry, but the program works just fine for those of us who are more comfortable with keeping it maintained.

"Wonderful fast program"

October 27, 2012  |  By fredg06

 |  Version: Wise Registry Cleaner 7.52

Pros

Performs very fast on my XP computer. Then, cleans everything within 5 seconds !!!

Cons

None as I know of.

Summary

Unlike Winzip Free Registry Cleaner, this program really is FREE.
Winzip cleaner says run scan, then will only clean 15 items, then tells you to buy the cleaner for $30.
I uninstalled the Winzip cleaner program with my new FREE Wise Program Uninstaller, and it works great, too.
