Publisher's Description

Registry Mechanic will safely clean and repair Windows registry problems with a few simple mouse clicks. Problems with the Windows registry are a common cause of Windows crashes and error messages. By regularly cleaning and fixing your registry, your system should not only be more stable but it will also help Windows and your software run faster. It uses a high-performance detection algorithm to quickly identify missing and invalid references in your Windows registry. These problems can occur for many reasons including being left-behind after the un-installation or incorrect removal of software, by missing or corrupt hardware drivers, or orphaned startup programs.

Crap software, avoid it all costs!
I downloaded trial version and could not to remove it from my computer. After uninstall PC hangs up. If i do reset - windows don't boots up. System restore from DVD instalation disk fixed it but then again i have this software in my computer. So i assume you can't get rid of this software untill you pay for it ? :P

My previous comment about Registry Mechanic 9 was removed due to some reason, so i wrote it again. Now i have bad opinion about this file forum too :)

This app has one serious flaw. When you click the 'X' to close it, IT DOESN'T CLOSE ! Instead, it minimizes to your tray and you have to take extra step to right click on the tray icon and once again click on CLOSE. I don't know about the rest of you, but when I click an 'X', I expect the app to CLOSE ! Other than that, it will find and fix many registry errors. Not all, by a long shot, but used in combination wiith other registry cleaners, it can prove to be useful. Low rating is ONLY because of the closure issue . . .

I only get this error "Unicode systems are currently not supported". Is this a joke? Windows is Unicode since Windows NT continuing with 2000, XP, Vista, or they don't know what is Unicode. I don't trust a program made by such programmers.
From the forum I understood that the program works on US systems only, not if I have installed an Interface language pack for Windows.
Version 8, 2009 and such unsolved problem?

I'll give this a 5 as I use to use Advanced Registry Optimizer, then Tweak PowerPack Pro 2006 and CCleaner has a little registry cleaner for free. So I wanted to try Registry Mechanic to see what's everyone talking about. After registering the program I was able to do a test run.

Well boy after using the above programs to clean the registry and see Mechanic found some more problems than the other seem to missed! I ran program remotely into wireless systems from wired source it work without a hitch.

Pack the registry down to 1MB from 40MB still not bad. It has some other tools I see not reason to use them, like they were just thrown in there to fill the gap.

But that's all this program is good for to manage the registry. And I gave it 5 out 5 for finding more crap that the others failed to find..

This is the one registry cleaner that you can trust. It only picks up the junk left over from an uninstall and broken kin ks in the registry. I have so much confidence in this program that I set it to delete automatically

Had heard so much about this program I tried it. It is one of those that finds everything then says register and you can eliminate them. How is that supposed to tell you anything? Poor way of doing things.

Great program. Simple and easy to use.
Seems to work very well. I do not see any other program better than this.

it's alrite. good interface, good implamentation of features, all of which do seem to affect performance to some degree, varying from system to system, such as unloading unused DLLs from the memory after use more quickly. but dont expect any miracles -- it merely removes what it deems invalid references, and they usually are, however for the short term this is harmless junk -- im not going to say on the long term effects of the "buildup" of these entries. who knows. also there are a considerable number of other softs which do share the same basic features, but at the cost of being less noob-orientated, are more in depth when it comes to finding useless entries(RegSeeker,Hover Inc.), and don't cost $19.95, infact nothing at all. you could argue "but which has better support?" well, u'll have to pay $19.95 to find out.

I think PC Tools makes the very best softwares. PC Tools seems to be aware of making a high reputation for it´s softwares and to advertise them intensively. Registry Mechanic is one of those high quality softwares. I also think, therefore, that their softwares are safer than many other softwares from other companies. Now, Registry Mechanic, is faster and better than ever! Björn Lundahl, Gothenburg, Sweden

Much better than v5.0. Improved in scanning speed and error detection, and stabilaty. I ran some tests:

v5.0 - ~12 min - 19 errors
v5.1 - ~4 min - 163 errors

And v5.0 doesn't crash a lot like v5.0!

I have been a registered user of this product for two years, just having registered again. It is a good product and does clean all of the garbage out of the registry. Is it perfect, no! Does it work, Yes. Everybody wants something for nothing, but I don't mind paying a few bucks to people who then have a reason to make it better and take some responsibility for their work. For the money, it is a good product.
