Atanium's primary goal is to deliver effective, powerful software that anyone can afford. PC Registry Cleaner is one of the top-performing registry cleaner software applications on the market. This registry cleaner software will not only clean up your computers registry, but it will also help manage your startup menu and improve overall load and startup times.
The simple one-click options for both scanning and repairing your registry streamlines the process so there is very little downtime. Having a clean registry will help revive older computers or speed up application processing. PC Registry Cleaner receives our TopTenREVIEWS Silver Award for its one-click options, quality feature set and overall ease of use.
Software like PC Registry Cleaner takes a rather difficult and potentially harmful process and makes it extremely easy. We were impressed to see that this software scans for items like invalid shared DLLs, Sound/APS and many of the other common registry locations. It found more than 4,000 issues during our initial scan and even gave us feedback on how to fix each issue. The scanning process took a matter of minutes and even included a deep scan, which almost doubled the issues found. Knowing that PC Registry Cleaner goes the extra mile to ensure that your system is cleared of all unneeded items is a welcome addition to an already great application.
PC Registry Cleaner includes the majority of the basic and advanced features found in other high-end registry cleaner software. The majority of the features will help keep your system's registry cleared of unneeded objects and will make the clearing process that much easier. The scheduling tool will ensure that your system is scanned regularly, while the automatic updater keeps your software up to date on the latest registry files. Before every cleaning, PC Registry Cleaner will back up your registry, which makes it possible to restore objects and files as needed.
The scan quality and amount of information the cleaner found was astonishing. A few thousand errors showed up the first time we ran our test. After a quick repair, the majority of those issues were fixed, and the remainder were taken care of after optimizing our registry. Optimization of your registry is like organizing a cluttered file cabinet. This registry cleaner software will make sure that all of your information is in the correct place, and it will also remove files, keys, fonts, sounds and other information that you no longer need. If at any time there are specific files that you don’t want to check, simply add them to the ignore list located in the settings tab. This tells the registry cleaner to simply pass over those files and leave them alone.
Safety is one of the most important features to consider before purchasing any registry cleaner software. Knowing that PC Registry Cleaner has a variety of backup files and is capable of undoing recent transactions gives you peace of mind. If your system seems to run differently after using PC Registry Cleaner, you can also restore your latest backup or try using the undo button until the problem is fixed. The first time you load the application, you will notice an automatic backup is created. This is just one way in which Atanium shows that it knows what it's doing.
One update we would like to see added to this registry cleaner is an issue-severity indicator. Not knowing how crucial an issue is can be quite annoying and can also lead to deleting something that your computer may need. However, we found that all the issues on our system needed to be taken care of and that the application is able to filter out files that the computer needs to run properly. If you are new to the world of registries, you will want to double check and make sure that all the issues at hand can be removed safely. Advanced users will already know this information and will find this application very easy to use.
Similar to many of the top-ranked products on our list, PC Registry Cleaner has a very simple interface. All of the buttons are well labeled, making them easy to understand and follow. One thing we were pleased to see is that most cleaning, repair and optimization tools have one-click options. Setting up a date and time for scheduled maintenance means one less thing for you to remember throughout the day. Keep in mind that maintenance and backing up your computer can take some time during the first few times because there may be a variety of issues.
Scanning your system takes just a few minutes (depending on how much information you have), and this software finds errors or issues throughout your registry. Once the scan is complete, you are able to see a full list of the issues and where they occurred. Additional details about each issue are available, and you can even choose not to remove specific issues. The cleanup system used by this registry cleaner is one of the easiest to use and bridges the gap between the registry and the user.
PC Registry Cleaner gives you a variety of ways to get the help and support your require. The software itself is simple enough that very little help should be needed. However, if you run into any issues, a tutorial system will walk you through each feature of the software. Atanium’s site also includes a large FAQs section, which should answer most questions. Like many manufactures' sites, there is a section available on the contact us page that will allow you to submit any issue through a contact form. The company responds via email and does a good job of answering most questions.
