    RegSeeker can search for items, uninstall applications, clear histories, clean your registry, and more.

    Latest Changes:

    * Improved Registry cleaner (with experimental invalid services)
    * Improved Registry Finder (within binary keys)
    * Perform 1 click full cleaning (Auto Clean)
    * Command line switch for cleaning (regseeker.exe /autoclean). Specify cleaning options in the Auto Clean panel
    * Ability to specify backup names
    * More entries listed in History/Open files - Old Start Menu items
    * New interface
    * Some bugs fixed (like "Incide hors limite" / language selection)

    I didn't think this app would be updated again.

    Thanks. Got it. :thumb: Anyone ever try Hover IP on an XP Pro machine. Having some possible hostile IP conflicts on the wireless side of my network. Looking for some tools to check them out.

    Hi Guys,

    I like the new RegSeeker, however, next time I'll untick the thing about cookies. What's this all about:

    Has anyone tried it yet?

    Take Care

    my guess is that it will delete invalid service entries. example: you uninstalled a program but the service is leftover.

    besides being experimental, i doubt it wouldve done anything on my computer since all my services are existent.

    Hi Fuser,

    I think the total was 60 & perhaps 1/3 or less were services related, & I'm not sure how to view the list. Next time I'll take notes!

    Take Care

    I unzipped the new RegSeeker right on top of its previous version. No problems ensued.

    As far as I could tell, RegSeeker doesn't require an install. Just unzip & use it. No system or registry changes.

    Am I correct??

    Afaik, yes.

    Btw I have both 1.45 & 1.50 unzipped. Had to change the exe name to RegSeeker145 & RegSeeker150 of course. :)

    I have a problem with RegSeeker (1.45). If after uninstalling a program, rebooting, and scanning with R/S it will come up with a list of entries - say 60. I then delete them and they are cleared. Re-scan and 27 are still there. They can be deleted again but remain. After a reboot they are still present. Anyone have this problem?

    I would still uses only TuneUp Utilities 2006 and Registry Mechanic v5.2. At least, they do their cleaning effectively without giving me problems afterwards. ;) :cool:

    I used Registry Mechanic after seeing it recommended here and it cleared without problems, but running RegSeeker again I see that I still have 13 entries left by Comodo which I got rid of some time ago.

    This may be a silly question, but I'm unable to figure it out for myself: How do you restore a backup created by Regseeker?

    Thanks. I now see where that's mentioned on the 'Clean the Registry' page.

    Thanks for the headsup....uninstalled my old Regseeker 1.45 completely and D/Ld 1.50...I'm impressed...very pretty......I like the new style and it works very well......I had the old version for ages without one single problem....Like some here, I never thought it would ever be updated....Excellent...:D

    Evidently there is now a version 1.51 of RegSeeker. Hoverdesk's website (the Seeker's home page) doesn't specify the changes. File Forum gives the following but I'm not sure if it's accurate...

    Surprised about the usage of Regseeker here, I have used it a few months ago and removed very important usb drivers and many other things.
    For me, it removes more than it should.

    Anybody else the same experience?

    I have never had an adverse result in several years of using RegSeeker. RegSeeker doesn't remove anything unless you tell it to do so.

    RegSeeker is fairly aggressive. I never click for it to do all the changes it suggests. Instead, I study the list & only click those entries I am fairly certain are okay. In its default settings, RegSeeker will always back-up its changes before executing them. Therefore, reinstatement of undesired changes is easy to do. In other words, the only way RegSeeker will do irreversible damage is if the user changes its default settings.

    If you want a registry cleaner that is very VERY safe then you should get Ace Utilities (it's not free, however) and set it to NON-expert mode. I have always accepted every change suggested by AU &, in 3 years of usage, have never had a problem. Of course, AU does back-up all changes that it makes.

    Thanks Belgamin for the info and I probably used it the wrong way and therefore thanks for the tip regarding Ace Utilities! I'll give that one a try.
