    Vit Registry Fix

    Is one of the best I have ever seen
    even though I do believe in keeping a clean registry
    I had notice no improvement in speed till I used this one
    also had a small freezing problem and was thinking of
    reformatting but after using this everything seems to been cleared up
    it also has a software section that will allow you to delete old programs
    and programs that were installed without your permission
    " be very careful with that part"
    I do not use the uninstall, there are better programs for that,
    I just deleted the uninstall part:thumb:

    If you count Ccleaner, Yes.

    To be honest i only use CCleaner for the "Peace of Mind" it brings, makes you feel you did something to clean computer although it might not have any effect. :D

    I find that either CCleaner or Acronis Registry Cleaner are the safest bet.

    I have a couple installed that I will run every now and then but lately I work so much I just let Norton 360 do its thing every now and then.

    I have Advanced System Optimizer and Tuneup Utilities (never allow them to run all the time, I only want them to work when I say so!)

    Question is - do we need to play with these things so much? Is there a genuine speed advantage that is quantifiable?

    Personally I clean mainly because of the Cookies, left Reg entries, disable some start-up stuff etc..
    And if there is a speed increase in doing that I don't know, I doubt it's a big increase anyway if at all. But if there is then I don't complain. ;)

    And all I use for that is what everyone else is using CCleaner of course.
    I don't need anything else since it can do everything I want. :thumb:

    It isn't a huge increase in speeds, but I feel that it does maintain the speed you already have and add just a tiny bit more, rather in time degrading the system, if I were to never use any.

    I use them under Windows 7, and It does feel a bit better after I have done cleaning. I may use too many, 7 might be overkill (3 reg, 3 disk, 1 defrag).

    Oh you should have seen my setup a few years back (When I installed a lot). I had somewhere around 22 system utilities.

    I have just tried Wise Registry Cleaner v7.17 and all the entries it found were legit. Many pertaining to Internet Explorer which I have uninstalled on my system as soon as I installed Windows since I only use Firefox..


    So far so good. :)

    I've used wise registry cleaner for a long time. It has improved a lot. And now it's free. It is very effective.

    Never heard of this so I had to try it out since you seem to like it. I have to say thank you! Thanks so much. I love this program. I have paid for many cleaners and this one really does make a difference for once. For only 10.00 I am amazed. I recommend this to anyone!
