You can buy it at RegNow for that price.
Simple enough for beginners to use, yet advanced enough to not insult the intelligence of the more advanced user.
A little expensive. Slower scanning than other programs I have used. Interface isn't very visually appealing, could be improved.

I have been testing many different registry cleaners & repairers over the past few weeks, & I must say I'm rather impressed. As with any product, it has its drawbacks, but all in all it is a very nice product.

The download was fast & straight-forward, no problems there. Installation was fast, also, but I really didn't see the need for the first pop-up window that asked if I wanted to install the program. Obviously if I downloaded it & proceeded to click 'Setup', I wanted to install it. I liked that you can select the components to install; made me feel a little more in-control. Like the download, the installation was fast & straight-forward & caused me no problems.

I launched the application & was a little disheartened by the style of the interface. I have used cheaper applications that were a little more visually appealing & modern-looking. Not a big deal, but they could improve on that a little bit.
The layout of the options is simple & easy-to-use, & each option was descriptive & understandable. I'd say it's easier enough for the beginner to operate yet advanced enough to satisfactorily meet the needs of the more advanced user. I really liked that there are also advanced options for the advanced user, too.
I proceeded to run a scan of my system. It took a little longer than some of the other applications I have tried, but it found things that the other programs didn't. I frequently scan my computer with my other program & I didn't think there would be that many errors missed. I like to know my computer is in tip-top shape & running smoothly, & this program eases my mind.
Once the scan was complete, it gave me a list of the registry keys & errors & such, & unchecked things that could potentially cause problems if removed. There is the option to check them if you're sure you want them gone & you know you don't need them, & I really like that. It once again gives you that control factor, & that's a pleasant thing to have.
It was very fast when repairing/cleaning the items, which partially makes up for the extended scan time.
There are also other handy options, such as: uninstall, configure start-up programs, defragment, take a registry snapshot, search the registry, manage registry, & there are backup options. There is also an 'Advanced Mode' for those comfortable enough to use it.

All in all this is a very effective & worthwhile program, and I'd say it is definitely worth the money. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to keep their computer running smoothly & without errors.


A great product that I would recommend to anyone looking to keep their computer running smoothly & without errors.
