RegCleaner is an easy to use program that can easily get rid of those old and obsolate registry entries created by software that you have destroyed ages ago. You don´t have to be any expert to use this program. Note that this program is not like those other so called registry cleaners, they search any filenames from registry, then if the file doesn´t exists anymore they remove the registry key or value where this filename was. But RegCleaner shows you the list of software that are registered in the registry and by checking checkboxes you select which software you don´t have anymore and RegCleaner removes all registry created by those programs automatically. You can also remove start up programs that are started behind your back and can dramatically decrease your computer´s performance.

    This program is SEVERELY outdated and can cause problems since it has not been updated since 2001 and has known bugs. Some of which were corrected when the author integrated this into his JV16 powertools program which since 2003 has been a PAY to play program. He claims he rewrote the registry cleaner when he did this.


    The new updated Registry Cleaner can now be found as a standalone PAY to play program call RegSupreme:


    JV16 Power Tools was initially free and the author received free beta testing in his forums from enthusiast end users, until one day for no reason he simply killed the forums and left every single person there in the dark. He then released these all as pay programs under the company Macecraft:

    I have no respect for the author for the way he did this. Nor for the way he treats the end users who used and helped him test his software.

    Registry Cleaners do NOT improve performance this is a Myth!

    This program looks like it has been replaced by jv16 PowerTools, which is made by the same people.

    This program was the best in 2001. It's a little out dated now. RegSupreme and CCleaner do a better job.
