Registry Utilities Pro Review:

Ease of Use

Registry Utilities Pro is very easy to use; it is a registry cleaner that does not require you to understand the intricate workings of the Windows registry. It is as simple as clicking “scan” in the navigational menu, and then clicking on the “scan now” button. This button is big and green, and thus hard to miss. It will scan for errors itself and you can select a number of them, or click "fix all." Unlike some other cleaners on the market, Registry Utilities Pro gives you a very clear and detailed report after it has completed its scan. This is especially informative if you are interested in learning more about how the Windows registry works because it gives a detailed explanation about each error. It is also interesting to see how some software's uninstaller programs leave certain registry entries behind.

Features

It also comes with several other features such as an ActiveX Disabler and a startup manager, but these options are best suited for those individuals who know what they are doing in these programs. It is good that Registry Utilities Pro has included these programs, but if you are an inexperienced Windows user, it is highly recommend you do not play around with these settings.

Effectiveness

Registry Utilities Pro promises to repair a slow running PC and to be easy to use with fast results. It also promises to have an easy to use interface that does not require you to be an expert at Windows to repair your registry. It does most of what it promises and you will certainly notice an improvement in your boot time, especially if you have been running the same version of Windows for more than a few months. With the errors it found removed it took a few seconds off the original boot time of 40 seconds. However, there is no noticeable difference in running daily programs after cleaning the registry. This means that at least on the test computer, the only thing affected by this program in terms of speed, was the time it took to boot the computer.

Drawbacks

One of the drawbacks to Registry Utilities Pro is the fact that it certainly is not one of the fastest products on the market. You are going to want to turn it on, let it do its job and walk away from the computer for a while. One final drawback is that when compared to other products on the market, Registry Utilities Pro does not catch every registry problem. Some of its competitors find quite a few more issues when running a registry test. On a computer that had 180 registry errors added, it missed as many as 50+ errors. A rather shocking 28% of errors that Registry Utilities Pro missed while it ran a system scan. Especially at its price range, it should be able to find these issues.

Registry Utilities Pro does what it promises and is easy to use and really does reduce PC boot time, however, the problem with it not finding certain registry errors is unfortunate considering some of its competitors do find these problems. If you have an interest in the detailed report it provides and are looking for easy-to-use software, Registry Utilities Pro is going to work out well for you. It is an easy to use program that even a Windows novice can instantly use, but with what it accomplishes I would consider it average.

Do Not Buy

I bought Registry Utilities and installed on a new build. Upon opening the App I found 3 Tabs that where supposed to be part of the program missing. The main one being the Main Component ONE CLICK MAINTENCE. I contacted
Tech Support and was referred to a third party who referred me to another third party. The second third party
referred me back to Avanquest. I contacted Avanquest again only to be told there was NOTHING they could. In other words they could care less they already had their money./

Pros
Easy to install
Cons
Does not have all tabs

Windows installer errors

I bought this thing even though I had Systen Mechanic Pro on my PC as well as another registry software and as they said it corrected Windows installer errors. Mine being 641and 643 and after running this program, they are still there!!!! I do not like companies as well as politicians that say one thing and then it's not correct!

Pros
Doesn't do job
Cons
Makes your wallet a bit thinner

Dosen't work

I figured that this would be the perfect solution to having my registry scanned, errors found, deleted, and the registry defragged. Perfect solution except that after finding, identifying the problems, I asked that the program fix all errors. It flashed through and indicated that all the problems were fixed. I logged off and then returned and had the scan run again only to find the program identified the exact same problems over again so even when it said that my problems were solved they were in fact not! Bad program. Very unhappy and have taken the program off my system and will scrap it. I did this three (3) times in ordere that I am sure that this program does NOT live up to its advertising!

Pros
Inst. running very straightforward.
Cons
Says that it has fixed errors but they remain!
