Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009

It looks good, but this Registry scan and repair utility performs only adequately. RegBooster's professional interface design helps users navigate the simple app. That simplicity is important as a promised online Help file is unavailable.

Operating RegBooster starts fairly simply with the press of a single Full Scan button. It's also easy to set options to scan select Registry hives. Both scans are quick. The problems start with the scan results page. The program defaults to repair all problems. Users are then forced to check a box for each error they want ignored. A simple toggle "all" or "none" selection button would have helped greatly. The program includes common options to back up the Registry before repair, and to manage the Windows Startup list. Neither option wows users with power or simplicity.

RegBooster's demo suffers from a problem common to this genre. The app will not repair any problems without registration. That makes it impossible to adequately test the program's primary repair and backup functions. That's a moot point for intermediate to advanced users who won't be impressed with RegBooster's overall performance.
