    "Quick and efficient"

    November 30, 2013  |   By merglerr

    Version: Wise Registry Cleaner 7.89.520

    Pros

    Works faster than some others, including non-free ones. Straightforward UI and clear messages during interaction.

    Cons

    Only does cleaning so that it requires a second tool like the one from Wise to compress the registry, if desired.

    Summary

    A very useful and effecive tool for ongoing maintenance of Windows-based PCs. It is not obtrusive and it takes relatively little resources when running. And, of course, the price is quite satisfactory 8-).

    "Great registry cleaning product"

    November 19, 2013  |   By AndrewBest

    Version: Wise Registry Cleaner 7.89.520

    Pros

    Stylish and simple interface, does it's job quickly and intuitively, there's an option to undo changes if something goes wrong, has registry defrag and PC optimizer, dozens of languages to choose from so you'll definitely find yours.

    Cons

    After fragmenting registry it seems to work a bit worse.

    Summary

    I've tried 20 different system registry tools and Wise Registry Cleaner takes the 2nd place from me, so I give a silver reward) It's really that good and simple but it could be a little better. Used it with pleasure but uninstalled in favor of Glary Utilities cause they have more options.

    "Does its job quickly and safely"

    November 12, 2013  |   By mnemonic

    Version: Wise Registry Cleaner 7.88

    Pros

    Installation is quick and painless, with just one minor hitch for an offer to download Wise's (free) Disk defragger, which is thoughtfully placed at the end of installation and easily skipped.
    The interface is pleasantly designed and the default settings are pretty benign as far as I can see; scanning is quick, and the proposed deletions can be reviewed in detail before you commit to cleaning.
    The Registry Defrag tab does just what it says: clears out empty keys and compresses registry files so they use less RAM when loaded. Generally you'll only want to do this a few times a year unless you're running a test system and constantly installing and uninstalling things.
    Overall, I like the program, as it does do a more thorough job than CCleaner's registry tool.

    Cons

    The System Tuneup tab is a bit problematic: while most of its changes are relatively safe, several of them are outdated for newer OSes like Windows Vista, 7 and 8, and a few (like the "Disable memory pagination" option) are *not* recommended for newer systems.
    I would recommend that users who don't know what they're doing not mess with this tab - there *is* a handy "System default" undo option on the bottom right, just in case.

    Summary

    More detail: The app's main Registry Cleaner tab provides info about the last time you scanned and / or cleaned the registry and will inform you if it thinks you should run a scan. There's plenty of information scattered around the interface if you poke around: Clicking on the upper right Menu icon shows there are a zillion languages supported, offers a few different skins should you find the default one hideous (I think it's fine), and has online help and site links. The "Settings" menu offers a few logical options for those who want more control or to alter the update check and exclusion settings, plus a "1 Click" cleaning option that can place an icon on your desktop which runs the cleaner in command line mode and displays a summary when finished.
    There are also Backup and Restore buttons right next to the Settings button, and the default is for the app to back up the registry before cleaning, as it should be.

    "Fast checking....but"

    November 12, 2013  |  

    Version: Wise Registry Cleaner 7.88

    Pros

    Fast in checking for errors and seems to "fix" what it finds without asking you to buy anything. However...

    Cons

    This program found 718 "errors" in my registry and another program found a whopping 2225 errors but would not fix them till I paid for the program. After Wise did its repair, I noticed no improvement at all. Not sure if this program is inadequate or the other one is just BS'n me into buying.

    "Works good for me got an crost the board speed increase"

    September 29, 2013  |   By 686166233

    Version: Wise Registry Cleaner 7.86

    Pros

    easy to use other system optimizations very useful useful

    Cons

    none except I wish I would have found it sooner

    Summary

    Not sure if the actual registry cleaner it self or the other system optimizations that I used in the program sped up my normally reasonably maintained system .
    It is quite a bit speedier overall in all respects now so whatever I may have missed in that respect it seems to have found and corrected something that was slowing at wo and a half yr old win 7 x 64 pc down . Highly recommended!

    have to remove my recommendation. I had to do a system repair
    and system restore shortly after using this product
    to restore functionality that was lost immediately after using it
    although i did not know some windows functionality was disabled when I wrote the review I would not recommend it at this time.
