RegSeeker Editor's Review
With a powerful registry cleaner coupled with a range of helpful registry-focused utilities, RegSeeker is a great addition to any Windows PC. Its cleaner is one of the most powerful and thorough out there, especially impressive considering it's freeware. While amongst its system tools you’ll find an excellent registry search, OS optimizer and a range of system-information displays.
With a lightweight build and no need for installation, RegSeeker starts promisingly but is let down by an overly complex and confusing interface. Many people will stick with the auto-clean option, but even then the user is confronted with a range of technical options before the process can start. This is not a utility for those looking for something simple and easy to use. But for those with the technical knowledge to use it, this is a strong and deep registry cleaner. It’s likely to find hundreds of problems that other free cleaners will miss, though be aware that RegSeeker is not fully Windows 7 safe. Elsewhere, RegSeeker’s alternative system tools are also a pleasant surprise; the registry searcher, system-information displays and OS tweaks are genuinely useful additions for those who'll use them.
App Pro’s: Impressive cleaner, nice range of system utilities.
App Con’s: Complex and confusing interface, not Windows 7 safe.
Conclusion: For those who like to dig a little deeper into their system than the average user, this is an strong and efficient support utility.
- Introducing Vista support (you will need to elevate UAC)
- Improved backup/restore functions (double-click for opening in regedit)
- Integrated Exclusion list editor with Import option
- Fix issue with StreamMRU cleaning (quicklaunch/desktop icons reorganization)
- Safer registry cleaning results
- Some crashes
