Advanced users will like the numerous easy-to-use tools packed in this Windows registry backup and restore utility, but novices may be a bit overwhelmed at first. WinSafe's basic interface may be its major stumble. It's ugly, but it works. Installing the demo is easy, but we would have appreciated the opportunity to direct the program's home folder.

During installation and its first run, WinSafe checks your system and asks for user input on select questions. The answers help the utility immediately configure itself to best operate. The program's primary function is to seamlessly back up your Windows registry. It does so flawlessly and also makes restoring your registry easy. The Restore tool can quickly replace your current registry with select stored copies.

WinSafe includes a dozen other commands to make dealing with your PC much easier. System tools call up standard Windows utilities. File tools delete in-use files or install files from service packs. This is one of our easier calls as WinSafe takes little time to learn and gives benefits immediately. Give this 15-day demo a test, and you'll come to quickly appreciate this registry tool.
