Uniblue Registry Booster Review

Former staff writer    -   June 13, 2006


Testing
In order to test the program, I decided to clean out my computer, which was in use for about a month without me cleaning it. The PC was running slower than usual, I got errors at Windows start-up, and programs sometimes crashed to desktop. Before I ran the program, I recorded Windows boot-up times (from bios to desktop) with a stopwatch. After running Registry Booster for the first time, I noticed how simple and user-friendly their menu and navigation was. Even the most technically-challenged person could easily figure out how to run the scan. You can scan the registry for errors (and fix them afterwards), defrag the registry, restore to a previous registry status (that was backed up), or configure the options (Start when system boots up, Start scan when Registry Booster starts, Start Minimized in system tray, Confirm for creating backups before repairing).

  
  
  


Not only is the program extremely simple to use, but it is fast as well. Both scanning and defragging the registry with Uniblue Registry Booster took less than a minute (on a P4 3.0E). I noticed that system ran smoother, I got no more errors at startup and software crashes were less frequent.

I also recorded the Windows XP startup time after cleaning the registry, as well as after both cleaning and defragging the registry. The results showed that Registry Booster did in fact lower startup times:

Conclusion
I was impressed with the simple layout and navigation of Uniblue’s Registry Booster. The company came up with an original and effective solution to fixing Windows registry problems. At a price tag of around $30, you simply can’t go wrong. Uniblue also gives out a free Registry Booster trial; I suggest you check it out!

Pros

  • Easy to use
  • Effective
  • Backs up registry values before cleaning
  • Safe to use
  • Runs on the most common versions of Windows
Cons
  • None
