    Has anybody tried Ace Utilities? I was looking at several other registry cleaners but I think Ace Utilities is excellent and has a lot more features. They also offer a registry compactor/defrag. :)

    I have been using Ace for over a year and IMO it's money well spent. :)
    The registry cleaner and junk file remover are two of my favorite features.
    The programs uninstaller is another nice tool.
    As muf said the program is updated regularly.
    The developer(Hari)gives good support also.

    Everything I've read about this program has been very positive. It comes with very high ratings and recognition. I'm trying it now and I really like it. I'm surprised few here have tried it out. I tried RegSupreme, jv16 Power Tools and RegSeeker. So far I like this a lot. ;)

    Have either of you tried the registry compacter and defrag? If so, how does it compare to NTREGOPT?

    Sorry Jon, i have never used it. Although it is free for registered users of Ace utilities, i worry about applications that replace your registry with a leaner one that has taken all the crap out of the registry. I don't have any software to back up my pc so if it went t!ts up then i'd be a goner.

    I tried NTREGOPT and the one from Ace Utilities, which made me a little more nervous with it's disclaimers. I think I do see an increase in computer speed though. I backed up the registry in ERUNT and also created a restore point before I did it. So far, so good. It makes sense to defrag and compact the registry if you are deleting registry entries. Anybody else use these registry compact and/or defrag utilities?

    Ace is very nice.
    IMO new version of System Mechanic does a better job.
    I own both, can't go wrong with either choice.

    You might like Regsupreme, no thrills, it will find everything possible to delete. :D

    I have used Ace U since I bought it for $29.95 1 year ago. It does an excellent job. I like it because it has an idiot-proof setting.

    I have been using Ace for about two years. It works great. However, I am confused. Ace does not come with a reg compactor, or de-frag. I have the latest version. Are you sure you are talking about Ace utilities?

    Ace Utilities does not include these in it's application. They are a seperate application entirely. However, if you are a registered Ace Utilities user then you can use this extra application for free. Look here:
    http://www.acelogix.com/regcompact.html

    Fifth line down states:
    "(Those who have bought Ace Utilites are eligible for a free copy of Registry Defragmentor & Compactor.)"
