Registry Medic

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
This utility includes everything needed to cure the Windows Registry: the search and repair (or deletion) of invalid entries, detection of Trojan horses, and backup and restoration functionality. Since registry errors often result from the movement of files, Registry Medic offers to search disks for moved files and fix invalid entries. Unfortunately, the trial version only fixes the first five errors, which is insufficient to fully evaluate the program capabilities. Registry Medic copes with junk entries left by uninstalled programs, too, and you can configure the program to skip entries linking to removable media (floppy disks and CDs) or any other files or folders. To fully safeguard your registry, you can back it up automatically, even every minute. The program's main flaw is its interface, which is inconvenient for viewing several hundred entries. Still, power users may really dig the tools Registry Medic provides.

Developer's Description

Fix your registry and improve system performance with Registry Medic. The Windows Registry is a huge database that ensures normal computer operation. Installing and uninstalling software can make your registry a mess, leading to decreased PC performance and computer crashes. Registry Medic uses an engine to scan your computer's registry for invalid entries. With the click of a button, you can repair or remove registry entries that refer to a file or a folder that has been moved or deleted. You also can scan and remove invalid software data and Start menu information from the registry. Furthermore, this utility can kill Trojan horses that use the registry to spread bugs that can damage your PC.
