To test this software, I'm going to be seeing how the easy the user interface is to use and how well the program cleans and defrags, to see if performance is increased. I'll be testing the majority of the time on my computer, but the performance test will be done on the family computer, which is plagued with a clogged registry. I will report any findings that I have during testing.

The first thing that I noticed while I was testing the software was just how good it looks. It looks very professional, sleek and easy to read. I had no problems whatsoever finding my way around the program and getting done with what I needed to happen.
I was afraid that this software would take a really long time to do its chores, but I was mistaken. At no time, no matter which operation I was performing, did I have to wait more than 30 seconds for anything. Everything was so quick, even the registry backups that the program said would take minutes. Uniblue's Registry Booster 2 definitely passes the test for the speed of its operations.
I heard a rumor a while back that said Windows will boot up faster if the registry is cleaned. Let's put that statement to the test. I'm going to be using my family's Dell computer which has been used daily for years. I will then install Registry Booster 2 on the computer and scan the system, clean the registry, and end by defragging the registry. The results are in seconds and time is stopped once Windows is fully loaded. I will also test access times and close times to major programs such as Adobe Photoshop, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, and Call of Duty 2 before and after cleaning and defragging the registry.
Are you kidding me? There is an evident performance boost in having a clean and defragged registry. I was simply amazed at how many seconds got shaved off access and close times for major programs.
