Ccleaner found 0 problems
Argente - Registry Cleaner found 988 problems

Ccleaner never finds very many. I think that is because it only cleans what is absolutely safe. I've used "Free Registry Cleaner" for a long time, and found from experience that you don't want to remove all keys just because they are empty. Some programs (Microsoft is a culprit) use GUIDs as key names, and they refer to the key name - it doesn't have to have a value. Now, I don't know how many reg-cleaners can tell if a key name has a GUID.

Auslogics Registry Defrag v6.3.0.5

Checker on 15 Mar 2014

Auslogics Registry Defrag defragments and compacts the Windows Registry in less than a minute. It scans through the registry to remove slack spaces, reducing the registry size and ultimately the amount of RAM the registry takes up, improving drive performance.

Note: Speed benefits on a SSD-based (flash media) installation will be minimal.

Category:
System Requirements: Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7
Writes settings to: Windows registry.
Stealth: ? No
Unicode support: Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract:
  1. Download the installer and extract to a folder of your choice
  2. The application files are located in the {app} subfolder
  3. Rename regdefrag,1.exe to regdefrag.exe and launch
What's new?
  • Added free space availability check before creating Rescue Center backups. If there is not enough free space on a disk, user has the option to abort the operation or proceed without creating a backup.
  • Fixed memory leaks, optimized code and algorithms, which improved the speed of practically every tool in the program.
  • All modules that work with hard drives were optimized to correctly process large data volumes, namely the Rescue Center will now correctly create and restore backups larger than 2 GB.
  • Made numerous corrections to language files.
  • Made numerous changes to modules; interface to make them more convenient and easier to work with.
  • Improved reports and operation results display in response to user feedback. Now this information is easier to understand.
  • Added partial Windows 8 compatibility. Full compatibility will be implemented in BoostSpeed version 5.4
  • Corrected all known bugs.
  • Corrected installer errors, optimized program installation and uninstallation.

@Harry: this program here is registry defrag not disk defrag

Pax on 2010-12-25 18:36

My only experience with a registry defragger left my system unable to boot (used backup registry to fix). I'm not writing this to take a cheap shot at the makers of this app but I think a better explanation is needed on their web pages. Most of the 'bullet-point' features sound like hype (reduce size, windows=faster, performance=faster).

Not sure what "remove slack spaces" and "Eliminates structural defects in the Registry" mean... Registry cleaners, disk defraggers, contiguous blocks of data, etc ... I understand. Registry compactors that fix structural defects... I don't understand.

The program is freeware again, but still not portable and won't run from external or network drives.

You do nothing wrong. It's a peace of SHIT !!! Waste of time !!! At least a single line of help how to use it would be decency!

Raj Sharma on 2009-12-26 02:11

I find it a good Program. Only one of its kind. You should know where your registry hives are.

* Version 1.07, typical system scan: 03:35 (15% speed improvement)

To previous commenters: if you take a snapshot of the entire PC (every file, all registry keys, etc), and then, many days later, you want a report of everything that changed, then naturally temporary files must be created to persistently track the changes from the original snapshot. This app is not meant to be "ultra-small-USB-stick" portable. Not sure what kind of alternative would be possible. Also, if you want to see all changes, and there were 90,000+ new reg keys, it's not the fault of WhatChanged that there is so much output (Richard is right about this). You can choose to view the output in whatever program you want (and Firefox is not a giant text database viewer).

Link doesn't work. Do you have alternatives links???

You are either stupid or a spammer (probably both).

From the app's version history:
Version 1.21 - Fixed bug: In some computers, when cleaning USB devices, the USB mouse/keyboard devices were also removed, and the user had to unplug and plug them again.

Indie on 2008-12-14 06:38

Thanks all.

After starting the system later during the day, it got logged in without asking for any password. Does it mean that the prog has got a copy of the pwd when enables an automatic log in considering the fact that some startup entries were removed and a new desktop startup entry was added (as per Spybot)?

webfork on 2010-10-05 18:31

I ran 3 other major cleaner programs here on the site (Bleechbit, CCleaner, and PureRA) and this program still found more to delete. If you're using an public computer, this seems to be THE program to run before you leave.
