Editors' Review

by   / May 20, 2009

This all-inclusive diagnostic program finds and repairs unnecessary registry files and hard-disk space. It also lets you manage your start-up programs and erases browsing history. Despite two trial limitations, we were impressed with Registry Repair Wizard's solid performance.

The user interface is well-designed and easy to understand. Command buttons representing the program's features reside on the left side of the window. Details for each feature reside on the right side. For our first task, we scanned our registry. Considering the task at hand, the program quickly found problem files. We liked that it separated the files into categories, and we were able to view the detailed findings of each category. On top of the 15-day trial period, the program only allows a maximum of 10 files to be removed. Still, we found that the program successfully removed the registry files we had selected. We were able to fully test the program's other features. We used the start-up manager to easily disable specific programs. The comprehensive privacy eraser cleared our browsing traces, Windows temporary folders, and recent file lists of common programs without a hitch.

An organized, built-in Help feature is included. Although it's a minor issue, the program did add a desktop icon without asking, but this is easily deleted. And even though the program is easy to use, we recommend that novices proceed with caution when dealing with their registry. But more experienced users will find this to be an essential tool for keeping their computer in tip-top shape.
